Your Planet in 7 Seconds: Gulping Seagulls in Argentina

September 10, 2015 G Adventures

Despite rumours of sea creatures, Argentina's “Cruce de los Lagos” is considered one of the most beautiful voyages in the world. Since 100 km (62 mi) stretches into Chile, travellers can cross the border over the water as they take in the breathtaking Andean mountain scenery and surrounding lakes.

Nahuel Huapi Lake is the largest and deepest in the lake district of Argentina, running to a depth of 425 m (1,394 ft) and stretching 544 sq kms (210 sq mi) across. Within its depths is said to live Nahuelito, a huge serpent or prehistoric beast. Sightings of the creature pre-date those of the Loch Ness Monster, with the local Mapuche people naming it “el Cuero”.

Today, these travellers are blissfully unaware of el Cuero. Join them they throw caution to the winds and cast their attention to feeling the local gulls who've come to visit the boat.
