Operator's Itinerary

Day 1: Travel to Lanin National Park

Transfer from Bariloche to your remote luxury hotel in Lanin National Park (4 hours driving time). The hotel rests on the bank of the river, nestled in the middle of a native forest. The wooden chalet exterior is complimented with a contemporary designed interior. 

Your first afternoon will be spent settling in and exploring the surrounding countryside. You may choose to have dinner in the hotel or venture out to the beautiful mountain town of San Martin for a tasty steak.

Accommodation: Luxury Hotel

Day 2: Mountain biking

Today will be spent mountain biking, with a choice of two different routes:

  • Filo Hua Hum Lake - Falkner Lake - A slightly more challenging route that sticks to gravel roads and forest trails. Rest at the lake shore and take a dip if you're feeling brave!
  • Cordoba Pass - An easier gravel road that heads predominantly downhill through green valleys and steep mountains with rock walls dramatically carved out by the water and ice.

NOTE: Includes transfer from hotel, bike and helmet, bike guide, lunch and insurance

Meals: Breakfast, lunch

Accommodation: Luxury Hotel

Day 3: Cerro Falkner hike

After a hearty breakfast, your mountain guide will meet you and transport you to the base of Cerro Falkner (2,350m) in the Nahuel Napi National Park. The ascent itself takes about 3 hours of medium-level difficulty. Trek through Nire and Lenga woods and keep an eye out for condors, foxes and ducks. Once you reach the summit ridge, you will be rewarded with mesmerizing views of Villarino and Filo Hua Hum Lakes as well as the snow-capped peak of Lanin Volcano.

Be transported back to your hotel and enjoy a relaxing evening in pure comfort.
