This National Park is located in Neuquen Province, Patagonia, Argentina, in the foothills of the Andes. It covers over 7000 km2 of scenic forests, rivers and lakes and is very good walking and hiking country. Much of the park is covered in stands of southern beech (Lenga) which are typically draped in moss. Andean Condors can be seen overhead and a host of birds, including Magellanic Woodpeckers, in the forests. The city of San Carlos de Bariloche is the gateway to the park.
