The fascinating and infinitely rich landscapes that surround Las Balsas compel most guests to explore. Hike through ancient forests and pass glaciers, kayak among the islands of the lake or ride through rivers and up mountains to reach breathtaking viewpoints.
For those who’ve come to Las Balsas to switch off, spoil yourself in the spa, sink into a loveseat in the reading room or find a secluded bay to enjoy a picnic.
End each day with a candlelit dinner enlivened by soft tango in the background.
The Lake District, located in the northern region of Patagonia, is made up of the Andes mountains, valleys with hundreds of lakes, lagoons, rivers and unique native forests that are vital for global biodiversity.
San Carlos de Bariloche airport is just over an hour away from Las Balsas. There are daily flights to Bariloche from other Argentine cities such as Buenos Aires, Cordoba and Salta. It’s also possible to fly direct to Bariloche from Santiago de Chile.
The Lake District is a year-round destination with each season offering visitors something different.
For hikers, we recommend spring, when the wildflowers are in full bloom, or autumn, when the mountains burn with rich shades of orange.
Water sports are the highlight of the summer, whereas in winter there’s skiing and snowboarding.
The fly-fishing season typically extends from November to April.
