Bariloche and Villa la Angostura image

San Carlos de Bariloche, in the centre of the stunning Lake District, has changed from a sleepy sheep town in the 1970s to a bustling and chic resort. Nestled on the edge of lake Nahuel Huapi it is surrounded by snow-capped mountains, quick-flowing streams and deep blue lakes, reminiscent of the Swiss Alps, but on a grander scale. In winter it is a trendy ski resort, and in the summer an ideal place to go walking, fishing, rafting, climbing, or riding.

Villa la Angostura is a small town on the shores of Lake Nahuel Huapi, just north of Bariloche. There are some lovely walks in the nearby Los Arraynes National Park and it is a popular destination for skiing in the winter months.

There are several good hotels and fine golf courses. A hire car is a very convenient way to explore the area. The famous lake crossing to Chile can be done in a day from September to March (at other times of year an overnight stop is made at Peulla, in Chile).
