This national route, that goes from Villa La Angostura to San Martin de Los Andes, has been completely paved a few years ago. For photo fans, a great adventure. Beautiful sights, a nice mountain road, just to drive it in a relaxed manner, with no...More

We did this drive in not perfect weather but it was still beautiful! The road is very good but quite curvy, it took us a lot longer than we had expected as we stopped a lot to take in the scenery and snap some photos....More

A must-do for anyone visiting, or living in Patagonia. We did this drive after MANY years, and it was as marvellous as the first time we went. Hint - the road wasn't paved then. The autumn colours were amazing.

7 fantastic lakes, do not leave the Patagonia without visiting them! Look for the sign to get out of the road towards the Espejo Chico lake, close to Villa La Angostura; you'll have to follow a road of 3-4km, keep going until it finishes into...More

It is a beautiful drive to be done in one day. Even better you can drive one way one day, stop at various lakes, spend the night at Villa La Angostura or Bariloche and then come back to San Martin de los Andes. Beautiful lakes...More

One of the reasons you came here - a must! Better with your own vehicle. Take the time to check out Lago Hermoso. And start early to enjoy the day and enjoy some solitude at the different miradores and lakes.

The road is actually more related to Villa La Angostura (it's southern end) rather than to San Martín de los Andes (northern end). It was finally(!!!) completely paved 2 years back. It's 120 km long (around 75 miles) and though locals tend to speed the...More

If you have an extra day in Bariloche, consider taking a tour of the Seven Lakes Road to San Martin de Los Andes. Great vistas and very different lake views. The village of Villa Angostura and SMdLA were pleasant surprises...friendly, bustling and attractive towns. It's...More

Actually there are more than 7 Lakes which don't even include the great granddaddy of them all -Nahuel Huapi - which covers at least 60 miles from Bariloche to Villa Langostura. And arguably the mountains and rock formations are even more dramatic than the lakes....More

Do it anytime, and every time you need to get to San Martin from Bariloche or Angostura. The road changes every time, whether it's raining, snowing, sunny or all full of frost crystals. And the seasons and lighting change it... More

I agree with Christians review. I also took 237 from Barilloche to San Martin and then road back thru 7 Lakes. Be sure and allow ample time in Barilloche. I spent several days there as well. Very beautiful town with lots... More
