Argentina

‘Not another National Park’ Ania winced when she turned into a road leading to Lago Puelo lake located in a protected area as we were driving from El Bol­són. The surface of the road changed from asphalt to stones and after 30 minutes we were at our destination where we…

Somehow, we ended up spending more than a week in the region of Argentinean lakes, driving between 4 main cities and towns of the area. All of them are quite distinct which made us write down some of our observations in case anybody plans to visit this area.

Argentina

We’ve been looking forward to it ever since we first saw its deep blue and crystal clear water from which the snowy mountain tops were literally emerging. Nahuel Huapi lake is already beautiful when seen from a distance but we still can’t imagine not coming close to it. There’s one…

Even though in reality it’s called The Seven Lakes Road, you get the feeling that there’s thousands of lakes around here. You can’t even make the end of one from the beginning of another. We already realised it a few days ago that the main ‘attractions’ of Ruta40 for us,…

On our second day in Lanin park, we start in Junin de Los Andes again. We thought, we’ll go to San Martin yesterday, but one of the roads leading deeper into the park is closer to Junin and we didn’t want to make the route longer. We also thought that…

This volcano, proudly called Lanin has drawn our attention ever since we found ourselves close to it. We knew, we wanted to come as near as possible and see it in its full glory. It’s located in the park of the same name, between the mountains and a lake. Can…

This could have been a bone-chilling story starting with: ‘It was getting dark, the road was empty and no car has passed us for the last few dozen kilometres. It was getting noticeably colder since we were entering the mountains and the only thing spoiling the mood was a flashing…

In the morning, we leave Chos Malal and head South once again. After less than 2 hours, we arrive in Zapali, from where there’s just half an hour to Laguna Blanca park. There’s 10 more kilometres of Ruta 40 past the city and then we turn West. After 20 minutes,…

Argentina

About 100 km past Mendoza, route 40 that we’re diving on divides into three other roads. One road map says – turn left, the other – take the middle one, google – turn right. We get a bit confused and look at the signs which don’t make it clear either….

Argentinean wines are the best… well, just after Porto. But there’s no scale for Porto – it’s always above competition. :) I sometimes feel sorry that I don’t even remember the taste o sine since I haven’t been drinking for the last 18 months. Despite that, I had no doubts…
