About Lucía V
Lives in Buenos Aires, Argentina
Since Mar 2012
25-34 year old female
I'm a 27-year-old translator, born and raised in Buenos Aires: a true "porteña". Travelling is my passion and I love being a tourist in my own city. What I like most about Buenos Aires is the identity of each of its neighbourhoods; they are all very different from one another. My favourites are Palermo, Recoleta and Puerto Madero. I also love good food, especially pizza, and Buenos Aires has some of the best pizzerias you will ever visit. As for hobbies, I am an avid reader (mostly fiction), love watching TV series (some of my favourites at the moment are House of Cards, Game of Thrones, The Crown and Sherlock) and period films (my most recent favourite is the BBC mini-series North and South, based on Elizabeth Gaskell's novel).

Other Outdoor Activities
The town of Bariloche is located inside the Nahuel Huapi National Park, which also includes the towns of San Martín de los Andes and Villa Langostura. The Park offers visitors multiple outdoor activity options - like skiing, trekking, fishing, and kayaking - as well as stunning sights.
From the top of this mountain, you will be able to feast your eyes on some of the most breathtaking views of the Nahuel Huapi National Park. Nothing quite compares.
Another mountain that offers spectacular sights, the Cerro Otto is best known for its rotating tea room at the top that provides guests with 360° panoramic views of the surroundings.
The Cerro López is a popular destination for its trekking paths and the shelter located at 1,600 meters above sea level, from which visitors can enjoy some of the most extraordinary views of the Nahuel Huapi Lake and the surrounding area.
The Cerro Tronador is the highest peak in the Nahuel Huapi National Park, where the numerous glaciers are the biggest attraction, viewed from the shelter located at 2,100 meters above sea level.
The Cerro Catedral is most renowned for its ski resort on the northeast side of the mountain, which offers several ski runs of varying difficulty. During the warmer months, the Catedral is the stage for another popular mountain activity: rock climbing.
This island, located in the center of the Nahuel Huapi lake, is one of the most popular attractions in the National Park. It is characterized by a dense forest, crossed by several pathways for visitors to explore, and numerous beaches offering imposing views of the translucent surface of the water.
The visit to the Bosque de Arrayanes is a truly enchanting experience that should not be missed. The soft reddish-brown hue of the Chilean Myrtles' smooth bark gives the forest a magical atmosphere that makes it seem like you've stepped straight into a fairy tale.
The Circuito Chico is one of the attractions that you should visit first if you've never been to Bariloche, as it shows at a glance, the most typical sights of the marvelous mountainous landscape. Following this circuit, you'll not only see the imposing mountains, but also the lake, the beaches, small villages like Colonia Suiza, and miles and miles of forest.
The Circuito Grande extends 250 kilometers, and includes the beautiful 'Ruta de los 7 Lagos,' the towns of Villa La Angostura and Villa Traful, as well as the Traful River and the Limay River. It is indeed a unique experience that extends far beyond Bariloche and offers the chance to explore the best of Patagonia's scenery.
