  • It is a very nice trip to make a day. General arrives by car because it is far away the access and has a House at the entrance to take / eat something that is a great retreat at the time of the turn where one tends to get tired. The hike seems at times quiet but tinée moments of big ups and downs. The journey is very nice, it is worth. We took us about 6 hrs.

  • This place is as in sleep, with a river crystal that you can see the fish on the bottom, is something cold water because it is defrosting, are about 2 hours of walk (ida) in mountain, can be also riding and a shelter type there are cottage offering accommodation You must bring your sleeping bag and offer you food. You can carry a tent and there are hot showers at certain times. It is to go with comfortable clothes.

  • While this is a not to be missed visit El bolson must be account is the path of ups and downs constants. In my case I uploaded and lower on the day (20 kms in total) and turned out to be quite tiring. The best choice for those who doubt can be a horse... really it is worth arriving
