The Bariloche region of Argentina, part of northern Patagonia’s Lake District, is one of the world’s most wildly beautiful and rugged regions. It’s a year-round adventure destination filled with jagged peaks, pristine rivers, endless miles of trails and crystal clear backwater oases that beckons travelers with just about every adventurous pursuit you can imagine.
This 6-day lodge-based multi-sport trip embraces all that the region offers. As you intimately explore the area, you’ll hike to serene waterfalls on mountain trails and ride horses to expansive Andean views, kayak the shores of Gutiérrez Lake, and raft the deep clear turquoise-blue water of the Manso River through a spectacular canyon lush with overhanging trees. But this experience also caters to individual interests with ample time built in for relaxation and rejuvenation, fishing, yoga, or even a therapeutic massage–all set amidst postcard-worthy views from the idyllic lakeside location of our luxurious cabin retreat in Nahuel Huapi National Park. Other off-site explorations include a visit to the city of Bariloche, dining in some of the city’s finest eateries, and even the option to visit local craft breweries. Choose the activities and adventure level that suit you each day, and in the evening, return to the comforts and amenities of our peaceful paradise.
