The Nahuel Huapi National Park was the first to be created in our country when Dr. Perito Moreno decided to give a large number of hectares to the national state. It has an unparalleled beauty between lakes, hills, valleys, rivers, streams and ancient forests, which provide the visitor a state of surprise and permanent enthusiasm.
The main city is San Carlos de Bariloche, with its more than 160,000 inhabitants. Very close to it, begins one of the most extraordinary routes that can be done on foot, in Trekking mode, in our territory. Although there are numerous alternatives within the national park, the one we propose offers variety in difficulty and certain accessibility for any possible case of evacuation and also resupply.
