A wonderful place to visit while in Argentina or Chile. I have been there in early winter - not the right time definitely, due to the conditions of the unpaved road and to the closure of most trekking trails. Nonetheless I have enjoyed it a...More

We came here to visit the ancient (4500 years old) Alerces tree. Unfortunately it was New Year's Eve and the boat (the only access) was not sailing. Nevertheless, the time spent in the park taking in a few of the shorter trails was simply amazing....More

Spent two nights at Bahia Rosales campgrounds in the park. A bit pricey at 100 pesos per day but the only site available as there was a mouse invasion in the park and no camping allowed in the "camping libre" areas… Only saw one mouse...More

We hiked above several lakes and enjoyed beautiful vistas. There are several lakes connected by a river. One day we took a boat to a trail leading to a hanging glacier. The park has been left natural, mostly untouched by man.

Beautiful series of glacial lakes connected by fast-flowing rivers. Wonderful trout fishing and good hiking trails. We stayed at the beuatiful Lago Verde Lodge (El Aura).

Questions & AnswersAsk a question
What's the most effective and cheapest way to get here? I'm coming from bariloche, wandering if I could take a bus to el bolsón, then cholila, and after that the park. Is this possible using buses? Public and/or private buses? Or would I be better off taking a more direct route from bariloche to the park or esquel to the park?

Hola, mi intención es ir al parque nacional los alerces la segunda quincena de enero Voy con movilidad propia. Mi gran duda es si yendo sin reservas podré encontrar sin demasiadas complicaciones alojamiento sea camping, cabaña, bungalows.. Si algun@ me da alguna referencia les agradezco mucho. Por otra parte si tienen algún precio estimado también. Gracias, Francisco.
