El Bosque Tallado, El Bolson
(3.8/5 based on 300+ reviews on the web)
See magical works of art at El Bosque Tallado, an outdoor sculpture gallery set in the wilderness. After forest fires devastated the area in the 1980s, a group of artists from across the nation came together to create sculptures using trunks from what remained of the trees. With fairies, spirits, and woodland creatures all charmingly depicted in the wood, the 50 or so sculptures nicely represent the relationship between art and nature. The site is around an hour's walk from the parking lot, so bring suitable footwear.

  • We had a rental car and drove up to the platform to start the hike. I'd highly recommend driving or catching a ride up that far...the walk prior up the gravel road doesn't look very exciting. We passe...  more »
  • Interesting but not a must. Path is complicated, best apart one day, go to the refuge or the ridge and passed to go to the Woods. I was doing 2 years and charged for tourists but now is free for everyone. You don't have to be an athlete but physical requeresforco, so q warning! Leave early, take water to climb (to refuel in refuge), snack, hat and light clothing, but take a jacket because the mountaintop and fresh.

  • Trekking is short, but by demanding moments (you can go with guys, but with patience). Forest carved itself is original and cute, nature mixes with the intervention of artists. If they are in el Bolson, it is a forced walk

  • Beautiful landscape, adorned by several sculptures carved on wood. Although most of the road from route can be done by car, the last (relatively tiring) part is Yes or Yes walk. Internal signage of the route could be more guidance (given that the ride is not very linear), but does not make much difference because the sculptures are from a reasonable distance. The day we went (October 26, 2016) were missing some posters with the corresponding name of some sculptures, but most of the posters were in good condition.

  • To access road is gravel and is in very poor condition. You must leave the car 1 km before the carved forest. You must climb walking along a path of descent fairly insecure: it has no Rails and there are many stones. Do not recommend for children or elderly people because you have to do a little physical effort to get, and the road so narrow and high does not help.

  • Lot of magic in the place, beautiful views. A walk by a trail in bad state, steep, with areas of average difficulty but that is worth the penalty make and enjoy.
