If you want to get a taste of everything the Lake District has to offer, then a multi-activity trip could be right for you. Starting from a base in Bariloche, spend the morning kayaking in the hidden bays of Lago Nahuel Huapi and Lago Moreno. After a relaxing lunch on the lake shore, swap your kayak for hiking boots and trek up to a panoramic viewpoint of Nahuel Huapi lake and the glaciers and peak of Mount Tronador.

Day Hikes from Bariloche

Mount Bella Vista

Be rewarded with spectacular views of the Argentinian Lake District from the summit of Mount Bella Vista on this off-the-beaten-track day hike. You'll begin climbing through transition forest, which gives way to bamboo-like trees and then to lengas. Whenever the cover of these trees breaks, you can enjoy far-reaching vistas. The latter part of the ascent is quite steep and on the way back down, you follow the same path.
