Lago Gutierrez is accessed on the Ruta 258 from Bariloche either by bus or car. A family and I took a day trip on the bus out to the lake and the national park. You can able to relax on the lake's beach or go exploring around the lake and the national park. There are a variety of hiking trails for everyone in the national park including the long and difficult one to Refugio Frey and Villa Catedral. We walked in the national park to the waterfalls, Cascada de Los Puencias, via a forest. We thoroughly enjoyed visiting the waterfalls and we spent some time relaxing at the lake's beach afterwards!
