ABOUT LOS ALERCES NATIONAL PARK:
Los Alerces National Park encloses an area of 263.000 hectares located in Chubut, a province in the Andean region. It was created in 1937 with the aim to protect the last redoubt where one of the oldest trees on Earth: the alerce or lahuan can still be found.
The Park holds many lakes, big rivers, crystal water brooks and millennial forests of maitenes, coihues cipreses, arrayanes and notros. Different species of birds, mammals, trees and plants are part of a unique environment in one of the few virginal forests remaining in the world.

Evening is an special time. As the sun falls behind the mountains, the light becomes blue and fades slowly into darkness. This is the time to either walk along the shore, sit in the deck to listen to the last birds sing or just share the days experience with your companions.
Moon nights can be just spectacular. The air is so pure and clean that you can walk along the trecks with no other light than the moon. And while the world we know goes to sleep a new one awakes, with its own shapes, colors and sounds. Walks under a bright moon is something you cannot miss.
The National Park is waiting for you, the forest, lakes and rivers can offer you as many opportunities as you imagine or desire.
We can drop you in an island for lunch or guide you through the forest, or just let us know what you wish and we will make it real.
Besides the National Park there are some interesting options to be considered such as visiting the Leleque museum, walking the streets of El Bolsón city, home of famous handcrafts, or going to the small town of Trevelin where a welsh tea house, built by the first european immigrants that came to the mountains can be visited.
