Don't miss this great route, and be sure to take the ferry or "barcaza" from San Martin to Panguipulli (Chile). It was the most unforgettable part of the trip and absolutely stunning. We were able to drive onto the ferry but it is recommended to make reservations during high season.

There are not much palces to eat in the road, but it is not long and you are close to San Martin. It is woth it. A beautiful scenary.... More

best trip in the San Martin area. Amazing and unforgettable views of the lakes. A full day trip to drive and see all the lakes and end in bariloche or return. A great way to transfers between the two great towns. About a $55 ticket per person through LS travel or another agency.

The Lake district is lovely. Beautiful lakes, mountain views, desert microclimates, interesting rock formations. Instead of taking the day tours, I took public buses because I had over a week and wanted to plan my own schedule. Suggest buy tickets to and from a few days in advance or at least a day before to make sure get on. There... More

Lots of the literature we saw online said that the 7 lakes route drive had unpaved sections, so rather than rent a car we opted to go with a local guided tour. Having taken the tour and seen the unpaved section, however, I would definitely recommend renting a car and doing the drive yourself. Much of the road has been... More

Great views when you are not hugging the steering wheel to avoid potholes, mini fissures and gullies on unmarked sides of road (50kms). Exciting stuff but hire a sturdy car.
