Approximately thirty minutes from El Bols├│n is the small village of Lago Puelo and a national park of the same name. Originally created in 1937 as an annex of the neighboring Los Alerces National Park, this impressive glacier-carved landscape was declared an independent park in 1971. Due to its low elevation and temperate climate, the terrain is thick with old growth, native trees such as the Coihue, Lenga, Radal and Arrayan. The dense forests are interlaced with well-maintained hiking trails that vary in length and difficulty. There are also nice beach areas for swimming and picnicking. There is a campground, store, restaurant and kayak rental shop located along the shore as well.
