  • It is a spectacular area for walking and share with the family since it offers places where approaching the river and cool off. As point of departure the Wharton finance lends itself to take care of vehicles and offers both food and snacks. Along the route of about 10 km of one way and many others back are several shelters. Some have food. It is advisable to check if they are open.

  • A unique walk! Booting from about 15 km from El Bolsón (you can go by bus), are 3 hours to the quiet rhythm, it is of low/medium difficulty. Really amazing, gives you the feeling of being in a documentary! Indescribable place. Must do if you are near. Not needed Guide, if notice to the mountain guards.
