Welcome to Lago Huechulafquen
Parque Nacional Lanín's largest lake is also its most central and accessible area. Despite limited public transportation, it can be reached from San Martín de los Andes and – more easily – Junín de los Andes. RP 61 climbs from a junction just north of Junín, west to Huechulafquen and the smaller Lago Paimún, offering outstanding views of Volcán Lanín. The tiny, spread-out settlement of Puerto Canoa toward the western end of Lago Huechulafquen offers access to trailheads of several excellent hikes of varying length and difficulty.
