From there, transfer to Puerto Puerto Pañuelo, located just 15 miles (25km) outside of town.  Step aboard a boat and sail out into Lake Nahuel Huapi; be sure to have your camera handy for views of Nahuel Huapi National Park's landscape. After 30 minutes of travel on the water, go ashore in Puerto Anchorena on Victoria Island. Choose to hike with the guide or on your own in Arrayanes Forest. Walk to Patagua Lagoon to see the pebble beaches, head for the Balcony on Cerro Bella Vista, explore the former National Nursery Trail or discover the ancient Cave Paintings.  Visit a picturesque rustic cottage deep in the Arrayanes Forest, said to have inspired Walt Disney as he created the setting for the movie Bambi.

Nice location and pretty sights. Be prepared to pick up tickets from the agency ahead of time, then you’re just one of many (100?) people on the excursion. If possible, buy the boat ride tickets from the ferry terminal and save $$$.

Packed boat trip. Efficient operation! Nice stop on Victoria Island (2 hours). Lovely and peaceful place. Stunning views of the lake and the Andes. Rain forest walk was a little underwhelming - so many people!

This tour was recommended by the hotel so we took it, there is another tour at the same dock - Cao Cao, that looked as nice ifr not better. The hike on Arrayanes was short, would have preferred longer, but the place was scenic. The Victoria island trip was better, because the tour guide actually gave us some history. We were the only english speakers, so she did accomodate us by giving us a summary in english before addressing the rest of the group in spanish

Even though it was all in Spanish (which meant I really got to practice my listening skills) this was still a fantastic trip filled with beautiful. The guide was very knowledgeable, I even managed to learn a few things with the language barrier.
