Shared with Chile in Northern Patagonia, the Lake District offers wonderful alpine scenery and varied activities.

Set between the towering Andes in the west and the plains of Patagonia in the east, the Argentinean Lake District is a paradise for walks and horseriding in the summer and skiing in winter. The alpine scenery attracted European settlers at the end of the 19th century and their influence is visible in the Estancias, architecture, cuisine and chocolates.

Bariloche is the main centre for tourism, with its beautiful location on the shores of Lake Nahuel Huapi - an immense, 7-branched lake which sit in valleys carved by glaciers. The town is surrounded by alpine forests, and snow-capped mountains, making it the perfect destination for visitors keen on outdoor activities such as hiking, birdwatching, horseriding or cycling. There is also plenty for those who prefer gentler activities, combined with stunning mountain and lake views, which can be seen in nearly every direction.
