It's time for a Bariloche day trip! In today's video, we'll be enjoying a boat cruise through Nahuel Huapi National Park, we'll visit the famous Arrayanes Forest, and then at the end of the day, we'll treat ourselves to a fancy fondue for two at the Llao Llao Hotel. So, this boat cruise took us to Nahuel Huapi National Park, which is the oldest national park in all of Argentina. We decided to go with a tour operator called Cau Cau and we booked everything online.

The tour departed from Puerto Pañuelo, which is the port directly across the Llao Llao Hotel. Our first stop of the day was at Isla Victoria, where we had some time to explore the island. The beach is a lovely place to linger if you happen to visit on a warm, sunny day, plus there are also hiking trails with cool lookout points along the way.

We learned this a bit too late, but even though this destination is advertised as a day trip, there’s a lodge on the island where you can spend the night. The place is called Hosteria Isla Victoria and it’s a pretty luxurious place offering kayaking, mountain biking, guided hikes, gourmet meals and unbeatable views. If we get the chance to go back, we definitely want to stay here!

We then got back on the boat and continued the journey to the famous Arrayanes Forest. Los Arrayanes National Park was created in 1971 with the sole purpose of protecting the rare arrayán trees. The trees in this forest are believed to be around 300 years old, though there are some specimens upwards of 400 years. The arrayán is known for its cinnamon coloured bark and they are surprisingly cool to the touch. This is because their bark is so thin, that you can feel the sap inside the tree. Once we arrived, we had some time to do the boardwalk loop around the forest and visit the beach.

Then it was time to sail back to Puerto Pañuelo. Once we finished our excursion of Nahuel Huapi National Park and arrived back at the port, we saw the beautiful Llao Llao Hotel at the top of the hill; it was just a little too irresistible, so we decided to treat ourselves to a nice dinner!

We managed to get a table at their Cafe Patagonia, where we ordered the fondue for two, which was divine and a super fun meal. We also got to go down to their cellar to select a bottle of wine. All in all a great day!

If you find yourself travelling in San Carlos de Bariloche, this is a classic day trip to add to your itinerary!
