The lakes district stretches along the Andes near the Chilean border. The heart is San Carlos di Bariloche, on the huge lake called Lago Nahuel Huapi and it’s bound on 3 sides by the Andes.There are numerous national parks in the region, all with unique landscapes and flora. It’s hard to imagine a more beautiful setting. On the highways the mysterious Gauchito Gil protects those who believe. We travelled north by car to San Martin de los Andes and on to Lanin National Park. Stunning!
