PATAGONIA BY LAS BALSAS

Immense Patagonia

Patagonia is immensity, adventure, nature, stunning landscapes, stories of explorers, ancestral cultures and gauchos. Patagonia is "terra incognita" and we invite you to discover it through us.

Patagonia de Los Lagos

The Lake District is located in the northern region of Patagonia, in the middle of the Andes. It is formed by mountains and valleys with hundreds of lakes, wetlands and rivers surrounded by unique native forests considered a hotspot of vital importance to the world’s biodiversity. Our forest is characterized by a lush green colour, due to the abundant rains and snowfalls that the winds of the South Pacific spread their humidity when crossing the Andes. Only 50 km east, this ancestral forest is replaced by the vastness of the Patagonian Estepa: a large desert of small shrubs and grasslands that stretches for thousands of kilometres until reaching the Atlantic Ocean.

Nahuel Huapí Lake

The Great Nahuel Huapi Lake

The great Nahuel Huapi Lake, “Isla del Jaguar” in Mapuche, was of vital importance for the native people who live a hundred years ago. It is currently located within the Nahuel Huapí National Park and keeps its landscapes almost intact and its original spirit of adventure.

Deep blue waters with diverse bays and beautiful postcard are an ideal environment to navigate, feel the fresh south wind in the face, relax within the Patagonian landscape and enjoy the moment. Normally starting from Las Balsas’s private pier.

Villa La Angostura

The small Patagonian town where Las Balsas is located between mountains, forests and lakes. Villa La Angostura is a young small town with stories of explorers, stories of Mapuches and Criollos, stories of a melting pot of German, English, French and Italian immigrants among others, who have forged dreams and hopes inside this majestic postcard.

Our Native Patagonian forests are considered a global priority for biodiversity conservation, a Biosphere Hotspot Reserve declared by UNESCO. The Nahuel Huapi National Park in where we are located, is among the conservation pioneers of the world.
