We’ll begin our Navigation trip to Puerto Blest and the Cantaros Falls by picking you up directly from your hotel in Bariloche and heading over to Puerto Pañuelo. We’ll drive along the Avenida Castillo, which takes us along the edge of Nahuel Huapi lake and has some lovely views. When we arrive at Puerto Pañuelo, sat between Llao Llao peninsula and Villa Tacul, we’ll get on a boat and begin the journey over Nahuel Huapi lake, a highlight of the region.
Firstly, we’ll sail over towards Islote Centinela, where the remains of Perito Francisco Pascasio Moreno, the explorer and academic behind the Argentine national parks, are laid to rest. We’ll move on to the Cascada de los Cantaros (waterfall), from where you’ll be able to see the huge and beautiful alerce tree, which is believed to be 1500 years old. We’ll walk through the wildlife in Valdiviana forest to get to Cantaros lake, the head of the waterfall.
We’ll then head back to the boat, and after sailing for just 5 minutes we’ll reach Puerto Blest, an incredible place visited by people from all over the world. You’ll have the chance to go to the bay and walk along the banks of the Frías lake, whose strange green waters come from one of the glaciers on Tronador hill, a natural border between Argentina and Chile. Here, you can choose to take another boat ride on Frías lake (not included).After sailing back through Nahuel Huapi lake and seeing some of its beautiful and secluded areas, we’ll arrive back at Puerto Pañuelo and bring our tour to a close with a drop-off in Bariloche.
