Parque Nacional Nahuel Huapi is fairly large and well equipped with refugios and different trails for walking. January and February in particular can get very busy, but we walked in March and apart from the one long weekend, it was fairly quiet. The two refugios we stayed at were quite civilized and they have meals and vino
. Due to last minute lack of planning we went with a guide which made the logistics a lot easier as well as the trail finding and we went some places we otherwise may not have gone. We started at Colonia Suiza, crossed to Pampa Linda and then went acros Paso las Nubes to Lago Frias and back to Bariloche by boat. In total it was 7 days walking, and although our packs weren't too heavy, there is a lot of steep up and down of very rocky mountains. Awesome views and a great place to walk, but not necessarily too much wildlife.
Now for some photos...
The refugio at Laguna Negra - great place to be inside when the wind is blowing outside!
Day 2 and Cerro Tronador is already making its presence known.
After the refugio, its tent time, but laguna CAB isnt a bad place to camp when there is noone else around.
