Andean Patagonia Traful

Villa Traful

This small mountain village, located in the heart of Nahuel Huapi National Park, at the shores of Lake Traful, is still a virgin land that invites you to explore the infinite Patagonian forest.

This village was born in the first decades of the 20th. century with the settlement of the first families. In 1937, as it happened in other localities in the area, the land was plotted and slowly began to grow given the beauty of the place.

The few existing houses were built on the slope that descends into Lake Traful. Near the pier you will find the police station, first aid, the park ranger´s house and the community center.

One of its attractions is fishing the landlocked salmon, and exotic species brought in  from the United States of America.

The natural environment is kept intact like its surrounding falls and creeks (Coa-Có and Blanco). The coihues and ñires form a wonderful forest.

If you walk the slope,  you will find several panoramic views of the village and surrounding areas. An ideal place for relaxation and rest.
