Portal La Ascensión

Top choice nature reserve in Los Antiguos

An outstanding addition to Parque Nacional Patagonia, this historic estancia on Lago Buenos Aires has an information center, lakeside car camping and a 25km trail circuit that ascends the meseta following the course of a mountain stream. It's apt for backpacking too: there are two campgrounds and a dome shelter on the circuit with water, a cooking area and latrines.
