Overview

Your day trip to Cerro Falkner begins with a convenient pickup at your San Martín de los Andes hotel. Travel with your guide south for 31 miles (50 km) along one of the most famous circuits in Argentina, the Seven Lakes Route (Ruta de los Siete Lagos), also known as Seven Lakes Road. The 68-mile-long (110-km) road connects San Martín de los Andes to Villa La Angostura, both in the Neuquén province, stretching from the southern end of Lanín National Park to the northern sector of Nahuel Huapi National Park.

Enjoy a pleasant drive as you pass four principal lakes of Lácar, Villarino, Falkner and Machonico, and into the mountainous forests of ñire (reed) and coihue trees.

When you arrive at the base of Cerro Falkner, located in the northern end of Nahuel Huapi National Park, prepare for a 3-hour climb of medium-level difficulty to the summit ridge, 7,709 feet above sea level. Trek through ñire and lenga woods, and keep watch for ducks, condors, foxes and frogs during your journey.

Take a break for lunch (bring your own) on your way to the top. As you rest, your guide explains the local vegetation and the unique geology of the area.

Reach the ridge and capture mesmerizing views of the lakes of Villarino, Falkner, Nuevo and Filo Hua Hum. Gaze at the snowcapped Lanín Volcano and Cerro Villarica to the north, and dozens of peaks to the south and west, including Tronador, Puntiagudo and Osorno hills.

Enjoy time to take in the abundant natural beauty, and then begin the 2-hour descent down the mountain, where you’ll be driven back to your San Martín de los Andes hotel.

Please note: A minimum of two people per booking is required.
