SAN MARTIN DE LOS ANDES
"A float boat trip with a riverside camp is a special experience close to nature"
Founded on February 4, 1898, San Martin de los Andes, a typical mountain village with charming architecture, has more than 35,000 inhabitants and is located on the eastern headwaters of Lacar Lake, south of the province of Neuquén.
Since its beginnings, San Martín de los Andes main economic activities were trade and lumber-related businesses. From the creation of Lanin National Park in 1937, with administrative headquarters in San Martín, timber harvesting for commercial purposes started to decrease, giving way to tourism, which is now the city's main economic resource.
Surrounded by vast forests and deep glacial lakes, San Martin de los Andes is the head of the famous 7 lakes circuit, it is part of the world-famous Route 40 and is the home to one of the major ski resorts in Patagonia Argentina, Cerro Chapelco. These features make it the major tourist center in the province of Neuquén.
