Plan Your The Lake District Vacation
Hundreds of sapphire lakes lie hidden amid the snow-covered peaks of the Andes on the western frontier with Chile, in what has become the most popular tourist area in Patagonia—the northern Lake District. Despite its growing popularity and accessibility from developed towns like Bariloche and San Martín de los Andes, visitors are constantly amazed at how easy it is to lose yourself in a silent forest, or by a still lake with no houses, no boats, no piers—just you and the natural surroundings.
