Biking around Lake Guillelmo in Argentina’s Nahuel Huapi National Park
Season: all year round
Duration: half day
Distance: 12 km
This guided cycling trip is a relaxed ride along the shore of Lake Guillelmo, in the Nahuel Huapi National Park. This is one of the main lakes in the Bariloche area together with Lago Nahuel Huapi, Mascardi and Gutierrez.
Since Lago Guillelmo is further away from town, mountain bikers can enjoy this immense lake in solitude. The road between the towns of Bariloche and El Bolson currently runs along the west side of Lago Guillelmo. But, several decades ago, Argentina’s President Peron originally built the road along the east side of Lake Guillelmo.
Today, this old gravel road on the east is closed off to cars, and it is only accessible to cyclists and pedestrians. The 2 to 3 hour bicycle ride from one end of the lake to the other is mostly flat with just a few mellow ups and downs. Beautiful location to have a picnic by the lake shore, or maybe even a dip in the water!
Your guide can share with you Indian petroglyph paintings close to location after cycling. This is an ideal cycling vacation for families and children older than 13 years.
