LOS ARRAYANES NATIONAL PARK



Though till 1971 this was part of the Nahuel Huapi National Park, it was split off and given its own national park status at that time. It preserves a stand of Myrceugenella trees of singular beauty, with their smooth cinnamon-colored bark and twisted trunks.
Covering an area of 1753 ha it includes the whole of the Quetrihue peninsula in the northern reaches of Nahuel Huapi Lake.

Natural aspects
The whole of the park is wooded with species of Nothofagus, Lomatia, southern cypresses and bushes such as the Chilean firebush, Berberis, and others. There are also dense stands of the colihue cane. Among the birds to be seen in this park are the austral blackbird, thorn-tailed rayadito and the chucao tapaculo; on the lakeshore black-crowned night herons and on the water the great grebe. The southern tip of the peninsula is cloaked with a 20 ha pure stand of the arrayan (Myrceugenella apiculata) as described above.

How to get there
Easiest access is by water where tour boats take one to a jetty to visit the trees. Overland there is a 10 km hiking trail to the same area south from Villa Angostura, reached from Bariloche along routes 237 and 231. Angostura is also the embarcation point for a shorter boat trip than from Bariloche (Puerto Pañuelo).

Of interest to the visitor
There is no camping in this national park, though there is at Angostura. The trail through the Arrayan woods is a boardwalk to avoid erosion.
