Villa La Angostura

Villa La Angostura is a village in the south of the Argentine province of Neuquen, on the northwest shore of the Nahuel Huapi Lake.

Geography and climate

The village is located halfway between the cities of San Martin de los Andes and Bariloche, inside the Nahuel Huapi National Park, very close to the isthmus of the Quetrihue Peninsula, where the Los Arrayanes National Park and its arrayanes (Luma apiculata) forest is located. The town is located nearby Cardenal Antonio Samore Pass that links it with Osorno in Chile.

The area's micro-climate offers mild temperatures though winter covers it in snow. Nearby La Angostura is the Cerro Bayo and its ski centre.


La Angostura is considered among the main attractions of the Argentine Andean Patagonia because of the wooden town itself, but also because of the beauty of its sights. On its left side is the Nahuel Huapi Lake, and on the right the Correntoso Lake.

Both lakes are connected by the Correntoso River, which with only 200 meters of length, is one of the sport fishing destinations around La Angostura.

The architecture of the town follows an European wooden style.

There are shops and restaurants of artisanal products such as chocolate, deer and trout. It's categorised as mountain village, though it has 11,000 inhabitants, probably too many to be considered so.
