A trail upholstered with thousands of small leaves helped us make contact with nature inside an ancient humid forest.
A wooden gate welcomed us to Laguna Verde (the Green Lagoon) Very close to the downtown and the port area, this small site amazed us because it revealed the inside of the Patagonian forest.
Once inside the venue, we felt the need to stroll around the lagoon to enjoy the local quietness almost in silence.
Our first impact was visual: the narrow path seemed to be “roofed” by the thick canopies of ancient shady trees. The atmosphere was very humid. There were fungi on the trunks.
The water body and the thick foliage have created a typical micro-climate where birds have settled their nests. The breeze would sway the branches above and their murmur was the only sound along with the chirping of the birds. That was the second impact: auditory.
Recommendations: The details of this tour were courtesy of the Municipal Tourism Office, 93, 7 Lagos Avenue, Villa La Angostura. Visitors may have access through the backyard of the Chapel of the Assumption, located on Nahuel Huapi Avenue, on the way to the port. There is a sign and parking lot for vehicles.
