Our most popular Signature Tour!  The Lake District Ski Week encapsulates all of what initially attracted us to this region and we are continually amazed at how much fun we have each and every year, venturing through the Siete Lagos (Seven Lakes).  As you touchdown in San Carlos de Bariloche, our home town, you are immediately overtaken by the sheer size of the Andes.  The towering spires of the Cerro Catedral Massif juxtaposed amongst forested hill sides and the pristine waters of Lago Nahuel Huapi is a sight that will stay with you forever.  Travelling amongst this mystical landscape, we will explore the iconic ski resorts of the Argentine Lake District; Cerro Bayo, Chapelco, and Cerro Catedral.  Beyond the great skiing opportunities that present themselves, there are the cultural elements of each township we visit that capture the imagination and leave you feeling inspired.  This tour contains an ideal mix of incredible terrain, authentic culture, and culinary diversity that makes it an excellent option for the adventurous spirits among us.
