Entering the forest implies an “invasion” of blossom aroma going through our bodies. The scenery is made up by old Chilean myrtle specimens with high foliage and cinnamon trunks.
We got ready to set off. At Puerto Pañuelo, we waited for the moment to get on board the ferry that would lead us to the myrtle tree forest on Quetrihué Peninsula. Once we boarded the white catamaran with powerful engines, we took our seats and stealthily set sail across the waters of Lake Nahuel Huapi.
On the Nahuel Huapi
As we sailed, we crossed the border between the Provinces of Río Negro and Neuquén. It was a very pleasant tour, so we resolved to let ourselves be carried away by the vastness of the landscape that was devouring us with its colors and aromas.
We were heading for Arrayanes National Park when we started to spot several small islands. We were getting more and more eager to hit our destination.
