A half-day hiking tour among the Andean forest and the famous Green Lagoon of the Challhuaco Valley. Do it with Camila, local AAGM certified guide!
As you may know, the Challhuaco Valley is south-east of the Nahuel Huapi National Park, 18 km from Bariloche City.
It is a really beautiful valley surrounded by the Nireco, Carbón, Ventana and Challhuaco mounts. Its amazing landscapes and native flora and fauna diversity make this adventure a trip of a lifetime!
As for the itinerary, our starting point will be Bariloche, from where a transfer will take us to the Challhuaco Valley, near the Neumeyer Hut. From this point we’ll begin the walk along a low difficulty trail. It is a really nice route since we can admire a beautiful high forest on the way.
After a few minutes we will reach the first viewpoint of the hike. A panoramic scenery of Los Patos Lagoon. The walk continues until a detour, where we must take the trail that goes straight towards the Green Lagoon (Laguna Verde).
Once in the lagoon, you’ll have the opportunity to appreciate the beauty and peaceful of its deep emerald color waters. This lake is also home of a kind of “micro-endemic frog” unique in the world.
And if you have more energy we can continue walking 15 minutes more by a trail that goes into a forest. We will then get to the Pedregoso Viewpoint, from where we will have a perfect panoramic view of the City of Bariloche and the Nahuel Huapi Lake. Now it’s time to return down to our starting point by the same route.

Camila has excellent knowledge of the area and was enjoyable to be with. Lunch was so so.
A tough but thoroughly rewarding hike. The challenges of the trek are matched by the stunning views, unique flora, and wonderful people you meet along the way.
