Know More about this tourHop aboard a comfy minivan from your San Martin de los Andes hotel, and travel south with your guide along a route that follows along sapphire-blue Lago Lcar in the Andes mountains. Listen to informative commentary as you glimpse Cerro Colorado (formerly a volcano), Cerro Savanna and Paraje Pil Pil, home to a community of indigenous Mapuche Curruhuinca.
Stretch your legs at the Mirador de Pil Pil and capture panoramas of Lago Lcar, framed by the peaks of Mallo, Savanna and Colorado. When you see the Piedra de Trompul ('Chief's stone' in the native Mapuche language), find out about its local symbolic importance.
Next, disembark at the base of Mount Chapelco, a mountain that rises some 6,496 feet (1,980 meters) above sea level and also a world-class ski resort, surrounded by lenga forests with views of snowcapped Lann Volcano. After a brief tour here, enjoy some free time and wander into shops that sell artisanal chocolate, smoked meat, refreshing beer and more. Or, take a cable-car ride (own expense) for aerial views of volcanoes, the Andes mountain range and Lago Lcar.
Back aboard your minivan, head back to San Martin de los Andes on the Arrayanes Circuit, a route named for its forests of cinnamon-colored trees. Pass through Puente Blanco, another Mapuche community town, and make a stop at Arrayanes viewpoint to soak up stunning views of San Martin de los Andes nestled amid the mountains, forests and Lago Lcar.
Your tour ends with a hotel drop-off in the early evening.
