Overview
It is a tour in 4x4 where every moment is a unique experience. The coast of Lake Argentino is surrounded by nature and history. The ascent to Punta Bonita cliff allows to have an excellent panoramic view. The Punta Walichu archaeological site is visited where the cave paintings made by natives are interpreted in the walls of caves. We finish the tour in one of the caves, where you have lunch or dinner, with an impressive view of the lake and the mountains.

Nativo experience was one of the best tours I took in Argentina. Our guide Nacho gave us interesting information not only about the place we visited, but also about Argentinean history. The views of the lake are awesome and the cave paintings, although few, are very interesting.

Very nice and kind staff . Being so close to the Argentino lake was awesome! The story about the native population must not be missed either . The lamb stew and the wine for lunch in the cave was a delicious combination. Highly recommend this experience!
