Lanin National Park

Topics: National parks of Argentina

The Lanin National Park is a national park of Argentina, located in the province of Neuquen, with forests of diverse tree varieties, mainly fagaceaes and pinophytas as the lenga and the Araucaria, many of which species can't be found elsewhere in Argentina.

Within the park is located the famous Lanin volcano, with its cone shape and snowy top. It also holds the Huechulafquen, Alumine, and Lacar lakes among other minors. In them, and the numerous rivers and streams, sport fishing of salmon and trout is practiced. The animal life of the park is similar to the southern Nahuel Huapi National Park.

The tourist city of San Martin de los Andes on the shore of the Lacar Lake serves as hub for tourist visiting the park, as well as to skiers visiting the nearby Chapelco ski centre.
