We toured Isla Victoria with an Abercrombie & Kent guide who identified the different plant life, described the island's colorful history, and helped us navigate the trails around the island. Our perfect ending came as we descended down to the beach, to see a bright yellow tent and a table set with soup, crudités and a chef grilling freshly caught... More

The boat trip to Isla Victoria & Bosque de Los Arrayanes aboard the Cau Cau is well worth the time & cost, even if it means putting up with a tour guide yakking over a loudspeaker a bit too much & too loudly, leading a gaggle of eager tourists who follow like baby ducks. The view from the boat of... More

We took a cruise by Turisur to visit Isla Victoria. When we arrived, the guide offered a small hike but suggested a longer one and we took it. The hike was very nice and the views from Lago Nahuel Huapi are awesome from the top.

Make sure the guide speaks a language you understand. Mine didn't and he kept some of the benefit and enjoyment away. Property/ island is pleasant.

Not much to see on the island or enroute. It has plants and trees from all over the world that began as seedlings. The island was privately owned in the past. The native people's petroglyphs are only 3 small pictures behind bars on the rocks. Not worth much to see. Poor quality food in the cafeteria style restaurant on the... More

There is lots to see here. If you have a 1 hour stop, you can reach the beach and part of the arboretum. But the views from the island are magnificent even if all you do is get off the boat and wait.

Nice excursion but if you have your own wheels, cheaper and better vistas are on the circuito Chico. Inside the parque just northwest of Llao Llao are also the Arrayan trees. Granted the tour guides on the boats are very good and informative. But the groups are on the large side, and the boat was packed in what is called... More

The ship leaves from Puerto Pañuelo in Bariloche or from Villa La Angostura, which is nearer. It's a half day tour to enjoy.

An inexpensive half day on the ferry that takes you to the natural park on the island. The guides will educate you about the restoration of the natural fauna. There are massive sequoia and pine trees. Don't go on a windy day. The boat ride will be rough and parts of the park will be closed due to falling tree... More
