Neuquén is known for the sport hunting of deer and wild boar. This activity is generally practised in ranches near the towns of Junín de los Andes, San Martín de los Andes, Aluminé, and Zapala. There are big game hunting sites in the area of Lanín and Nahuel Huapi National Parks, supervised by professional guides.
In the south of Neuquén Province, within Los Lagos department, there is a mountain village situated on the northeast bank of Nahuel Huapi Lake, in the middle of the Patagonian Mountain Range. This peaceful and beautiful mountain village lies surrounded by majestic formations, and it is part of the entrance gate to Arrayanes National Park, a unique place in the world where there is a natural forest of this tree species.
