PN Los Arrayanes (Los Arrayanes National Park) preserves a sample of the patagonic forest eco-region, which has wet and cold warm climate, with winter snowfalls and rains. During almost all the year there are frosts and strong winds from the West.
This eco-region has high mountains, with glaciery valleys. “Semideciduos” forest, which is high represented in the north but not too much in the southern part, dominates the area and alternates with “turberas” in the southern part.
