Mountain bike in Bosque de Arrayanes See map

Despite being a relatively short hike, we believe it is one of the most beautiful walks that can be done. 

PN ArrayanesAt the entrance to National Park Los Arrayanes.

As almost everyone knows, there is a road coming from the Isthmus "La Angostura" on the Beatriz o Quetrihué peninsula, which goes directly to the Forest of the Myrtles. It is a path that in the first few kilometers have 2-meters-wide, becoming then a narrower path. All the way takes place between beautiful forests of coihues, it crosses a stream, it passes the edge of the lagoon Patagua, then coming to an area of ​​green fields with scattered myrtles, just before the ranger's house and the entrance to the forest of myrtles itself.

As soon as you take the road and in the middle of the first climb, there is a gate and a sign of "No Motorcycles." Not do with our behavior that extend to bicycles.

This trail is shared by many people who do the 12 km one way and 12 back foot. That is why we must take every precaution and respect that walkers deserve.

Half way we will cross a stream coming from the lagoon Huahuan, and is the only source of water until you get to the cafe in the little house "Bamby".

The road is so nice and refreshing for the spirit that is worth doing slowly, to admire, and not spend like crazy at full throttle with the bike. Almost the entire route is very dark and to take good photos you will need a good flash or take a movier of 400 or more ASA.

Arrived at the "Bosque de los Arrayanes", and left the bikes where indicated by the ranger, we take a trip along the walkways of wooden planks, which are daily circulated by stunned thousands of tourists who visit it. In the house of "Bamby" you may take a few drinks and then some sun on the beach near the ranger's house, or on the docks where catamarans coming from Bariloche dock.
