Nahuel Huapi Lake Sightseeing Cruise with Victoria Island and Arrayan Forest...
Reviewed November 14, 2012 via mobile

we hiked the 12km from the entrance to the end of the park where the arrayanes trees grow. then we took the ferry back to the starting point, which is a nice way to explore this park. the one way ferry cost 90pesos - we first thought about renting bikes which is 70-100pesos but this would have been a bad idea for us. the first 2km in the park is very steep with sandy, loose ground- pushing your bike up there won't work, you would have to carry it. the other parts are fine, but this is a real obstacle - except for moutainbike enthusiasts I guess!
make sure you don't miss the miradores at the first km - the one up to the left is fantastic, the one to the right ok. take your time, especially with the miradores and if you take pictures you will be in a hurry if you want to make the trip in 3hrs on foot. you're in the forest 99% of the time. book the ferry in the office at the pier next to the national park office, it leaves at 16:30 back from the island, costs 5pesos less and you get a voucher for hot chocolate. it's a very nice experience and can be absolutely recommended!

We spent 3,5 hs walking through Península de Quetrihué to get to the Arrayanes forest, what a magical experience!

We rented bikes in Villa la Angostura (next to the tourist information) and cycled from the village to the actual forest at the end of the peninsula. It is about 15 kilometers in total (3 to the entrance of the park and 12 inside the park) and especially inside the park it is sometimes a very tough ride. The first kilometer is mostly walking and stairs, so no cycling there, but from there onwards it is doable. While cycling you get great views of the lake and you'll find many birds. Make sure to stop at the second lagoon for a picnic, it is a great, quiet spot. The actual forest is interesting, although a bit touristy, and you can easily see the forest and wonder why the trees are red:)

The other way of reaching the forest is by boat, but a one-way ticket is 90 pesos, which seems quite expensive. We thought it was way more interesting to go by bike. Overall, the park is a nice outing, especially by bike.
