Operator's Itinerary

Day 1: Lanín National Park; Río Hermoso Hotel

Transfer 4 hours from Bariloche to Lanín National Park. Here your luxury Río Hermoso Hotel rests on the bank of the river, nestled in the middle of a native forest. The wooden chalet exterior is complimented by a contemporary interior. 

Spend your first afternoon settling in and exploring the surrounding countryside.

Meals: Dinner

Accommodation: Río Hermoso Hotel


Day 2: Bike to Falkner Lake or the Cordoba Pass; Río Hermoso Hotel

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

Filo Hua Hum Lake and 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!

The 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: This includes transfer from hotel, bike and helmet, bike guide, lunch and insurance

Meals: Breakfast, picnic lunch, dinner

Accommodation: Río Hermoso Hotel


Day 3: Trek to Cerro Falkner; Río Hermoso Hotel

After a hearty breakfast, your mountain guide will meet you and transport you to the base of Cerro Falkner (2350m) in the Nahuel Huapi 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 Lake Villarino and Lake Filo Hua Hum as well as the snow-capped peak of Lanín Volcano.

Once back at the base of the mountain, you'll be transported back to the Río Hermoso Hotel to enjoy a relaxing evening in pure comfort. 

Meals: Breakfast, picnic lunch, dinner

Accommodation: Río Hermoso Hotel


Day 4: Kayak on Lake Machónico; Río Hermoso Hotel

It's time to get out on the water as you decide between kayaking or rowing on Lake Machónico, accompanied by your rowing guide. Like many of the lakes in the Argentinian Lake District, Lake Machónico is fed by glaciers, providing crystal clear water. Surrounded by conifer forests, this is the perfect spot to enjoy a leisurely paddle whilst exploring the various beaches. 

Meals: Breakfast, picnic lunch, dinner

Accommodation: Río Hermoso Hotel


Day 5: Transfer to Bariloche

After breakfast you'll wave goodbye to your forest retreat as you are transferred back to Bariloche.
