Sailboat Trip on Nahuel Huapi Lake

  • English English
  • 3 hours

Discover the spectacular landscapes of southern Argentina with this fantastic sailing trip on Lake Nahuel Huapi. Fall in love with the intense blue color this glacial lagoon and its pretty islands.


When booking you can choose between two fantastic sailboat trips. Both depart from Puerto Petunia, in Bariloche, and last approximately three hours.

Sailboat trip around Huemul Island

After meeting up at the Petunia campsite we will board the sailboat and head out on the Nahuel Huapi Lake. We will sail around the beautiful San Pedro peninsula until we reach Huemul island where we disembark to begin a one-hour walk around the island. Cypresses and oaks stand out among the lush vegetation of this area, which was once the center of Argentine nuclear research. We will discover the constructions of this secret project before returning to the sailboat. Finally, we will return to the original departure dock where we enjoy a snack with cold meats and drinks before we say goodbye.

Sailboat trip to the island of Los Víveres

If you want to sail even further then this is the option for you. We will board the sailboat and after admiring the coast of Huemul Island, we will continue sailing towards the idyllic Los Víveres Island and picturesque Puerto Venado in the province of Neuquén. During the trip, we will make a stop to enjoy a snack and also learn how to steer the boat before finally returning to Puerto Petunia.


You will have to choose between one of the following schedules: 

  • Sailboat trip around Huemul Island: 1:30 pm from April 1 to December 1, and at 10 am and 2 pm from December 2nd to March 31st.
  • Sailboat trip around the island of Los Víveres: 1:30 pm from April 1 to December 1, and at 10 am, 1:30 pm and 5 pm from December 2 to March 31.
