Full description

Start the first section of the tour in the Quetrihue Peninsula where you will visit the Arrayanes Forst.  After a quick walk, arrive at Bosque de Arrayanes where you will stay for 45 minutes and cross the forest on a path that is 2625 feet (800m) long.

This part of the trip culminates in the mythical cabin that functions as a tea house. From there, boardoard the catamaran and resume your tour as you head to Bahía Anchorena. After several minutes of navigation, the catamaran will arrive at Puerto Anchorena. Once off the boat, begin your tour of the island.

Among the possible activities, you can take the historical route, which is a 1-hour walk where you will have access to information related to the history of the island and its flora and fauna. The other option is to trek to Piedras Blancas on a 5-mile (8km) route.

You can also visit Toro Beach, where you can see cave paintings, or the recreation area where you can take a break and even eat lunch. It should be noted that the island has a confectionery stand, where passengers have the opportunity to have lunch or a snack.

Great tour, perfect timing to all the stops, Raul our guide was absolutely incredible and really made the whole day as informative as it was special. Plenty of food on the boat in between stops. Would definitely recommend to others looking for a day trip out on the water when visiting Bariloche.

The excursion itself was great but it was a shame that there was no departure earlier in the morning in order to make the most of Victoria Island (pick up at 11am in the center of Bariloche, arrival at island between 1:00 p.m. and 1:15 p.m. and we had 2:30 hours on the island before heading back to the park) Several hiking trails are available but unfortunately no time to do everything (for a person in good physical condition it takes about 4 hours to do all the circuits without really landing to enjoy them. In my opinion, del torro beach is the best spot for pick-nicking and why not take a dip in the water for the bravest. Los Arrayanes Park has 'a mini circuit of 30min but idem everything is timed and I find that we do not have enough time to enjoy the places and their beauties. Given the price, and the distance, this is not an activity that we could do again several days in a row.

The downside of the tour was that they didn't pick us up from our hotel. We were told to a hotel 50 meters away, on the same street, forcing us to wait for more than 15 minutes in the cold in front of that hotel. We didn't understand why they didn't pick us up from our hotel, as the bus stopped almost in front of us. Other than that inconvenience, it was a very pleasant day. The vessel is comfortable and as we had paid for a VIP accommodation, the service was exceptional. The guides were very good and the tours were great. Worth it.
