Neuquén (in mapuche language, “daring, and vehement”) has strong cultural roots on the millenarian mapuche tradition (mapu – land, che – people).
It is a typical mountain village located in the southwest of Neuquén Province, within the Lacar department. It is surrounded by a privileged and amazing place: Lanín National Park. It is part of the Patagonia of Lakes tourist area, and it lies 1,020 miles away from Buenos Aires, and 270 miles away from Neuquén Capital City. The “valley of the Gods”, called like this by the indigenous people that inhabited the place, is waiting for you to discover it.
