Full description
Get picked up from your hotel in Bariloche and head northeast along National Route 237. Cross the Ñireco Stream and Ñirihuah River on the way to Limay River. Drive along the pretty banks of the river until stopping at the amphitheater; a place of true natural beauty, the river valley takes on an interesting form here. From there, continue to Valle Encantado to discover strange figures outlined in rocky formations, some including Finger of God, Express Train, The Siamese, and Sentinel.  A couple miles later, come upon Confluencia, where you’ll switch to an unpaved road and travel through the Traful River Valley. Cross some of its beautiful tributaries and then take a pitstop at the Traful Lookout, a cliff hovering 230 feet above the lake. Continue until reaching the magnificent Traful Lake. On its southern shore, find Villa Traful and woods filled with native coihue trees. Visit the main dock and wander around the town’s colorful streets. The route continues south. Visit lakes Correntoso and Espejo, and then the stunning resort town, Villa La Angostura. Finally, pass by Puerto Manzano and Brazo Huemul before joining the road that returns to Bariloche.

This was a very nice tour, quite complete with gorgeous lake and Mountain Views. Our guide, Joanna was pleasant and knowledgeable and available for questions or concerns. The scenery was outstanding! It’s a long trip but comfortable even though part of the road is unpaved. We would recommend this tour.

It is very comprehensive to get a nice look to all the area. But you may have to complement it with Circuito Chico a second day to get view of the lake and ski areas.
