The town of Villa el Chocón, is located 80 km from Neuquén capital. Its tourist village, on the shore of the artificial lake Exequiel Ramos Mejía, comes from the creation of an imposing hydroelectric dam, built in the 70s. This hydroelectric power plant generates electricity for a large part of the country. It is located in an area of depressions in the terrain that make this landscape surprising in each one of its panoramic points (Mirador del Lago, Cañadón Escondido, Represa). Another of the great attractions of the area is the large number of paleontological findings in the area, among which is the Giganotosaurus Carolini, the largest carnivore found so far. This is exhibited the paleontological museum Ernesto Bachmann. Also on footbridges located on the shores of the lake you can see traces of dinosaurs that were reflected in the soil of the area.

that trees were interesting, but scarce and the ferry was expensive and the trail was closed. I remain surprised by how often they close the entire Parque Nacional de Nahuel Huapi for high winds. I wish i knew both of these things before driving the hour and a half to get there.

We took the catamaran ferry to the end of the peninsula then enjoyed the 12 km hike back through the forest. The Peninsula contains a large number of ancient myrtles which have created an amazing ancient forest which is well worth a good look. After that the route back takes

I rented a bike in order to visit the park. Even if the start point is full of stairs and tracks not suitable for bike, after 1km it is just amazing for riding. If you prefer hiking the way it is the same as the one for biking. 12km each way. At the end of the forest you can

This was a beautiful activity even in the cold since we were warmly dressed in our fleece. We took the boat down (45 min ride) through the lake--a gorgeous trip with incredible views and reflections of the mountain ranges to the tip of the arrayanes penninsula (where the

Went there as part of a half-day boat trip from Puerto Pañuelo that also included Isla Victoria. It's an easy, peaceful hike among exotic, picture-perfect trees. Totally worth it.
