Create an itinerary including Parque Nacional Los Arrayanes
Hike the peaceful trails of Parque Nacional Los Arrayanes, home to 300-year-old arrayan trees, endemic to the Andes. The park was created in 1971 with the sole purpose of protecting the fragile evergreen trees, known for their smooth cinnamon-colored bark and small white flowers. You can hike the 12 km (7.4 mi) from the park entrance to get to the forest, rent a mountain bike, or take a boat ride on Nahuel Huapi Lake. Stroll along the wooden pathway to admire these rare trees, and try to spot foxes, pudus, guanacos, and bush monkeys. Make Parque Nacional Los Arrayanes a part of your Villa La Angostura vacation plans using our Villa La Angostura trip itinerary planner.

  • Amazing place to visit if you are around Villa La Angostura. They offer several options for you to go into the park. We decided to do the free short walk of 3.2 km round trip. Be aware that for foreigners the payment for visiting the whole park (22 km round trip) is around 10 dollars. Some other tips, riding a bike is a popular option but take into consideration that the first 3 km might require you to carry your bike due to the path inclination.
  • Excellent walk. Magical scenery. The arrayanes bosque is a solid 11 km walk from the entrance so be ready for that. We walked there and were able to buy boat passage back to town once we were at the end; it wasn't necessary to arrange boat passage in advance (though maybe worth doing if you can to avoid the risk if you know that's your plan)
