Description

Right in the heart of Patagonia we findĀ Baguales Mountain Reserve. It isĀ surrounded by the Villegas River and the Foyel River. It combines pristine forests, open wilderness, steppe, imposing mountains, deep canyons, valleys and curious rocky summits where we can see the majestic Andean Condor (vultur gryphus).

The vast panoramic scenery reflects the infinite extension of this landscape. In its deep valleys, covered by lenga beech (nothofagus pumilio), it hosts local fauna as well as other introduced species. The untouched serenity of this natural reserve and its region serves as an invitation for birds and crystalline water sounds.

Do you want to discover this magical, wild, Patagonian destination? Contact me for more information! We will have the best time in these beautiful mountains.
