A clever take on our ever-popular Lake District Ski Week, this tour takes things up a notch in terms of luxurious accommodations and unique methods of travel. Following the historic Ruta de Los Siete Lagos (Seven Lakes Route), we will venture through quaint mountain towns like San Martin de los Andes, Villa La Angostura, and San Carlos de Bariloche.  Along the way we will visit the iconic ski areas of the Argentine Lake District and explore the vast terrain each mountain has to offer.  Included in this tour is a scenic sunset cruise across the tranquil waters of Lago Nahuel Huapi, where we will toast to our ski day and enjoy a view seldom seen during the winter months.  Our lodging each evening will be first-rate and the food and drink will astound even the most accomplished culinary connoisseur. Embarking on this journey requires a keen sense of adventure, but it doesn’t mean you have to forego the creature comforts that make this a one-of-a-kind mountain experience.
