Full description
On this full-day excursion you’ll take in some of the most breathtaking features of the Nahuel Huapi National Park. Visit lakes, beaches, mountains, and waterfalls, and admire the highest mountain in the Patagonia. Mount Tronador, 3,478 meters high, forms a natural border between Chile and Argentina. From the viewpoint at its base you can see the incredible glacier that feeds the Manso River. See the Ventisquero Negro (Black Glacier) that consists of huge brownish-gray blocks formed by avalanches of ice and mud. Visit La Garganta del Diablo (The Devil’s Throat), a waterfall created by melted glacial ice, surrounded by high rock walls, and see the Saltillo de las Nalcas, a hidden waterfall in the middle of the forest. This mountain’s name, Tronador, comes from the thunderous sounds produced by the massive falling blocks of ice.

Overall, a very good tour. The tour involves a quite lengthy drive on rough land inside the national park which was indeed tiring but amusing. This is the only way to drive inside the park anyway. Our guide Isis was great: very friendly, very knowledgeable and super helpful. The tour was also good in terms of organization, stops for toilet and brief stops for photos at scenic spots. Something noteworthy (at least to me) is the absence of trash bins in almost all locations. Visitors must return with their residuals due to the limited garbage collection service imposed by the nature of the place. Recommended.

The tour is very good but ...

... you have to make a one-way car trip of about 3 hours (1.5 hours going and 1.5 hours coming) and that does not clearly warn you, which should be done for greater clarity for those who are thinking of doing the tour. In any case, in the tour they make several stops that make the trip bearable and enjoyable. Another aspect to mention is the restaurant for lunch, because the truth could be better for the price they charge. In general the tour is very worthwhile, the guides are very friendly, they explain many things during the tour and because in the end the views of the Tronador are unique and phenomenal.
