After some free time to have lunch, we will go to the beaches of Lake Huechulafquen, contemplating the imposing view of the Lanin Volcano, of 3776 meters. of height, and its summit always snowy. In Puerto Canoa, a beautiful place located on the shores of the lake, there is the possibility of optionally taking a catamaran ride that takes us to navigate part of the Huechulafquen and Lake Epulafquen to the 6 km long lava slag of the Achen Niyeu volcano, lasting 1h 30 m contemplating the imposing view of the Lanin Volcano.
We will also visit Lake Paimún, with green waters, and the Araucarias forest. Then the return to San Martín we do it observing the Mapuche Communities, being able to know their homes and their lands.
