Come join us as we visit the forest that inspired Disney's famous Bambi as we visit the Arrayanes Forest just outside of the town of Villa La Angostura, Patagonia, Argentina.
Before getting on the boat we had to pay de admission to Arrayanes National Park. The cost varies depending on wether you’re a foreign visitor, national resident, or provincial resident, but we paid the equivalent of 9 dollars per person.
The boat trip was beautiful! Truth is, it was the 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 we ask for? We really enjoyed that this was a small group excursion and that our captain also shared lots of interesting bits of information about the place as we travelled along the peninsula.
We disembarked at the Arrayanes Forest and went on a short guided walk with our group. From this point, those who were planning to hike stayed back, and those who were continuing their boat excursion hopped back onboard.
The main forest circuit is 800 metres in length, takes 30 minutes to complete, and you’re on a 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 a little bit, you’ll be able to have the whole forest to yourself.
As we mentioned, the hiking trail from the Arrayanes forest to the port in Villa La Angostura is 12 kilometres in length and takes about 3 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, though we did encounter some steeper stretches towards the very end.
Along the way, we saw lots of 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 if you ever encounter one of these trees.
The last stretch of the trail 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 were we encountered some of the most impressive views of the day, and there were numerous lookout point where we could stop to rest and soak in the landscapes all around us.
And that was our day trip to the Arrayanes Forest - aka the inspiration behind the movie Bambi. At some point we just stopped filming because well, we were pretty tired and hungry, but hopefully this video gave you a better idea of what this excursion is all about. As always, thanks for watching and we’ll see you in our next video!
