Nahuel Huapi Lake

Covering an area of 550 square kilometers, Nahuel Huapi is one of the area's most important lakes due to its several bays and islands. Located about 700 meters above sea level, this lake has glacial origin.


Its seven branches, namely Campanario, de la Tristeza, Blest, Machete, del Rincón, Última Esperanza and Huemul and its great depth (450 meters) are some of the main features of the Nahuel Huapi Lake.


This remarkably beautiful place is shared by two Argentinean provinces, Rio Negro and Neuquén, and it is located in the National Park bearing the same name. Its deep blue waters and the landscape that surrounds the lake make this place stunningly attractive.


Indigenous legend has it that a giant creature lives in the depths of the lake. This myth gained great popularity in 1920 after the Zoo of Buenos Aires launched a search for the creature. However, no concrete proof has been obtained until nowadays.
