Sea Kayaking in Bariloche - Argentina

Sea Kayaking in Argentina
 

Description
Includes

Requirements
Observations

The Nahuel Huapi is a gigantic lake of blue transparent waters originating from a glacier. It stands out from the ample chain of lakes in the region due to it's complex form and great size. It's coasts are irregular, it has many islands, an uncountable number of bays and peninsulas, in addition to various deep extensions of water. It is surrounded by large strings of mountains from which the majestic Tronador volcano arises. It's name must be given due to  the loud fall of rock and ice from it's glaciers and to Cathedral Hill, a string of granite peaks. The area covers approximately 600,000 hectares. 

The maximum depth of the lake is known to be 454 meters and it's surface area reaches to 557 km2, located 764 meters above sea level. Along the shores of the great lake sits the important touristic cities of San Carlos de Bariloche and Villa La Angostura. The Nahuel Huapi lake was discovered by the Spanish conquerors in 1620, when an expedition of 46 men under the command of captain Juan Fernandez proceeded from what is now Chilean territory to cross the Andes in search of the city of the Caesars.
