A mountain town with a strong cultural identity, Lago Verde is known for its troperos (a person who works by driving cattle, mainly cattle through the fields), yerba mate, and country lifestyle. Today, you can still find the trails marked by the Tehuelche people and traveled by explorers, cowboys, and adventurers journeying north to Palena or south to Villa La Tapera.
The area’s different landscapes––made up of forests, the magnificent Lake Verde, Patagonian steppe, and rivers flowing down from nearby mountain ranges including the Sierra make this a unique destination with a truly rich rural tradition.
The town’s lodging options include guest houses, rental homes, and cabins. Find out more at the official website:
