Argentina’s Lake District, surrounded by the clear waters of Lake Nahuel

Argentina’s Lake District is reached from the main city of Bariloche, a destination in itself. Surrounded by the clear waters of Lake Nahuel Huapi, the city is kept cool and fresh by the adjacent landscapes created by glacier-fed lakes and unspoilt forests. Bariloche itself is relaxed and pretty, famed for its chocolate-making and for having one of the most scenic lake crossings, set in the heart of the Andes Mountain range and ending in Chile. The Lake District is where adventurous types come to enjoy skiing, fishing, climbing and trekking.
