  • well good morning good morning guy morning today we are taking you on a day

  • trip we are doing one of the most popular activities here in Villa La Angostura

  • and that's going to visit Bosque Los Arrayanes yeah it's a famous forest

  • with cinnamon colored trees like bark of these trees it's like an orange e brown

  • it's so unusual and some of the trees in that forest are over 600 years old which

  • is insane that is so we're gonna be taking a boat out there yeah we're

  • taking a boat out to a particular point on the on the peninsula yeah and then

  • we're gonna be hiking all the way back and so it's going to be a day of being

  • out in nature we have absolutely stunning weather today not a cloud on

  • the sky it's not windy it should be like a phenomenal boat ride it's not gonna be

  • chomping at all the waters are calm and so yeah we're both really excited to do

  • this

  • so before we get on the boat let's talk a little bit about the different options

  • to get to the forests on the peninsula so two main options you can either take

  • the catamaran which is massive it's like a two-level boat yeah or you can take a

  • smaller private boat with a guide this option was recommended to us by our

  • Airbnb hosts because you got a bit more information about what you're seeing

  • where you're going so yeah and then we got down to the port and the guy who

  • runs these excursions was standing there with information it was funny is like we

  • were matching our brochures we had man and he had one okay perfect so yeah it's

  • called Bahia Mansa excursiones about 17 or 18 US dollars yeah and that's to

  • do the trip one way because we're planning to hike back you can also do a

  • full excursion by boat but you can also you can also just you can also just hike

  • it yourself as well you could just walk it they say that takes six hours if

  • you're right there and back again it's technically it's what it's twelve or

  • thirteen kilometers one way so doubling that be it'd be a busy day but if you

  • need to work off the old the asado you've been having yourself yeah but

  • honestly like we're just standing here at the port and like the views we're

  • getting yeah the mountains it's stunning it's incredible I think it's it's a good

  • idea to go by boat at least one way if you can just to get a different

  • perspective a different vantage point and one last thing to mention we got to

  • the port by taking a taxi but you can also take public transport the taxi was

  • before u.s. dollars dollars yeah great value great value for two people

  • yeah you can also take a collective Oh or you can just walk

  • before getting on the boat we had to pay the admission to our arrayanes national

  • park (bosque arrayanes) the cost varies depending on whether you're a foreign visitor

  • national resident or provincial residents but we pay the equivalent of

  • nine dollars per person

  • the boat trip was beautiful truth is it was a perfect day to be out on the lake

  • there was hardly any wind the waters were calm and the Sun was shining what

  • else could be asked for we really enjoyed that this was a small group

  • excursion and that her captain also shared lots of interesting bits of

  • information about the place as we traveled along the peninsula

  • practicability era momoyo rectina Sonoma Bigelow Soroka we disembarked at the air

  • arrayanes forest and went on a short guided walk with her group from this point

  • those who are planning to hike stayed back and those who are continuing their

  • boat excursion hopped back on board

  • guys we have arrived it was a beautiful beautiful boat trip so scenic that was

  • basically outback filming the journey the whole time redonkulous scenic don't

  • give us lean action here you can see Parque Nacional Arrayanes and now well

  • of course we're going to explore the forest the whole trail but but first

  • teahouse lose something a little warm Mitsuki we need to seek some cake

  • fortification fortifications we see the tea house is just 100 meters away not

  • far at all it's already 12 noon so feeling queasy you peckish you imagine

  • if it was closed oh don't even sing we don't have a

  • back-up plan so yeah sure hope it's open like back in town at the port they sell

  • some little snacks like there's shops where you can pick up pizzas or

  • sandwiches and chips things like that chocolate bars we didn't grab anything

  • so this is this is our only plan all right guys we got to the tea house and

  • this is going to be our lunch before us we got to ham and cheese sandwiches and

  • then two cakes this one is called rogel yep and it's like these layers almost

  • like a like a cracker or a crumbly cookie with lots of dulce de leche in between

  • each layer and tons of merengue tons of a giant slice of lemon raspberry tea to stay warm

  • I'm going to try some of that tea it's chilly outside that's right a little

  • heater in the corner of the tea house it's gonna warm up before we head out

  • there yes

  • the main forest circuit is 800 meters in length takes 30 minutes to complete and

  • you're on the boardwalk the whole time lots of excursions stop here so

  • sometimes it can get a little bit crowded but it's always a quick visit so

  • if you're in no rush and don't mind waiting around a little bit you'll be

  • able to have the whole forest to yourself

  • now that we are well-fed we are back on the trail ready to tackle this hike our

  • lunch was 16 US dollars it was very good but those portions of cake were so big

  • and so sugary we gave up halfway with a second cake we were defeated by the

  • lemon pie yeah it was good but yeah just the could more than we can handle

  • oh my here we are in the middle of the arrayanes forest (bosque arrayanes) and the bark is

  • really colored like cinnamon it's so crazy it's like an orange brownish wood

  • so nice imagine coming here during Golden Hour that would only accentuate

  • the colors pro tip for all you photographers come here who when the

  • light is soft also a little fun fact for you guys this forest that we are

  • currently walking through was apparently the inspiration for the forest you see

  • and Bambi in the Disney movie go and watch that in many many years this is

  • the inspiration behind it

  • so this is kind of embarrassing but we are lost on a trail us again she has again like

  • we're on the boardwalk like to dodo birds

  • we followed the sign that said trail towards Villa La Angostura back to

  • town twelve kilometers and we even a full circle well I didn't see a trail

  • you know what I'm sure there was something we missed

  • I'm just been taking photos and videos maybe this is like some Disney magic and

  • were in a haunted forest without exit perpetually trapped doomed to continue

  • going in circles trail to Villa La Angostura and here it says please lift the

  • rope pass and close it there we go that's where we made our error oh my

  • gosh that's with the dodo bird dodo bird incident vamos vamos Wow

  • as we mentioned the hiking trail from Arrayanes forest to the port in Villa La

  • Angostura is twelve kilometers in length and takes about three hours to complete

  • once you get off the boardwalk and onto the trail the path is well marked and

  • it's a pretty straightforward hike most of the trail was flat the we did

  • encounter some steeper stretches towards the very end

  • yeah you can go biking you can do the trail on bike but they say it's medium

  • to high difficulty well and there's sections of the trail where you have to

  • carry the bike along the way we saw lots of our arrayanes

  • trees the most unusual thing about these trees is that when you touch their

  • trunks and branches they feel quite cool even on a hot summer day this is because

  • the arrayan has a very thin bark that allows you to feel the SAP that flows

  • within you really need to test it out for yourself if you ever encounter one

  • of these trees so time to look at a map so you guys know what we're up to today

  • exactly so this whole whole thing you see right here is called Peninsula get

  • the way we took a boat out this way like departing from the port yeah

  • traveled all around to this end where you have the forest bosque arrayanes that's the

  • purple trail that's where we got stuck and we thought we are lost and then we

  • got on the trail and this is where we've arrived just now laguna but that one so

  • we've only walked a kilometer and a half nine and a half more to go but we're

  • basically gonna be following this trail all the way back yeah we've got one more

  • laguna and a lot of more a lot more walking today yeah oh and this peninsula

  • is on lago nahuel huapi I'm not sure if I've mentioned that already well

  • thank you for that we are now getting our first glimpse of Laguna but that one

  • ooh the water looks beautiful it's like an

  • emerald green inviting I bet it's ice-cold

  • well guys we have reached the halfway mark kilometer 6 yep this is where it

  • tells you if you're on your way to the forest think about thinking about your

  • time how long it's taken you to get here and when is gonna get dark yeah yeah I'm

  • so tired I can't even you can't formulate sentences yeah we are getting

  • pretty tired I think we're still better eating than we are at exercise

  • we passed a lot of bikers along the way and I mentioned that earlier as an

  • option I will clarify that it's more mountain biking because it's uneven

  • terrain you're on a dirt trail like sometimes you have weird tree roots and

  • fallen logs so it's not a smooth cycle if that's what you're envisioning

  • definitely not a paved path but very beautiful if you do enjoy mountain

  • biking also the scenery is changing and we are getting a lot more Sun because

  • the trees are getting smaller now we have a lot more shrubs and just smaller

  • trees and bushes so not quite as much shade as we had earlier when we started

  • the trail at the very end but still very enjoyable very very nice and yes on the

  • words we go the last stretch of the trail it was the hardest because we had

  • to climb some pretty steep slopes plus we were just generally tired from a long

  • day of hiking that being said this is also where we encountered some of the

  • most impressive views of the day and there were numerous lookout points where

  • we could stop to rest and soak in the landscapes all around us and that was

  • her trip to the arrayanes forest aka the inspiration behind the movie Bambi

  • hopefully this video gave you a better idea of what this excursion is all about

  • as always thanks for watching don't forget to subscribe and we'll see you in

  • the next video

  • you

well good morning good morning guy morning today we are taking you on a day
