1. San Martin: Lanin Volcano, Huechulafquen Lake & Junin Tour

Start the tour at 9 AM with pickup from your hotel in San Martín de los Andes. Begin driving along a 40km route through the steppe to Junin de los Andes. When you arrive, admire this small, historic city which is one of the oldest settlements in the province. It is known as a fishing town with many religious buildings. First, visit a local church called La Virgen de las Nieves and observe how Catholicism and Indigenous culture have been mixed. Then, take a stroll through the local market and feel free to shop for handicrafts.  Then, continue the tour towards Huechulafquen Lake. During the drive, follow the Chimehuin River and marvel as the landscape changes into dense Patagonian Forest. Arrive at the entrance to the National Parks for a quick stop to buy entrance tickets (not included in the tour price). At midday, choose to have lunch in a Mapuche Restaurant or feel free to bring your own food and have a picnic beside the lake. Continue driving along the entire northern coast of Huechulafquen Lake. Finally, arrive at Paimún Lake and admire the spectacular views towards the mountain range, and incredible panoramas of Lanín Volcano and its glaciers. From here, have the option to take an optional 1.5-hour cruise on the lake for an opportunity to appreciate beautiful views of the El Escorial volcanic formation (not included in activity price). Alternatively, enjoy some free time to take a hike at Paimún Lake. Finally, return back to San Martín de los Andes for approximately 6:30 PM.
