Explore Victoria Island & Arrayanes Forest in Patagonia. The navigation starts at Puerto pañuelo. After a 30 minutes navigation across the blue waters of Lake Nahuel Huapi, in a modern and comfortable catamaran, you will arrive at Puerto Anchorena, located in the central area of Victoria Island. From here you can wander about various marked trails. You can take a guided tour and visit the conifer and other species nursery, natural lookouts and trails surrounded by cathedrals of trees; listen to the sounds of creaking ancient pines, the calls of birds, the coming and going of the winds through the trees, the lapping of water on the shores of the lake, and amazing vistas. One of these trails lead to Playa del Toro, with its cave paintings and a beautiful volcanic sand beach.
On board again the catamaran will sail towards Peninsula Quetrihue where you will get to see the world famous Bosque de Arrayanes (myrtle forest), which is absolutely unique.
