Hike along the banks of Rio Azul, where tree-lined walking tracks follow a route cut by this wide and winding waterway. You'll find a few stop off points with vendors selling refreshments along the most popular route, leading up a hill and offering extensive views of the river valley below. Bring a towel and swimsuit if you fancy a dip in the clear blue water, or consider hiring a kayak or raft to explore the area without soaking your feet.

Where to stay in El Bolson

El Bolson offers affordable rooms throughout the year, which makes it extremely popular with budget travelers and backpackers. You can always check into a basic hostel, but it's a good idea to reserve in advance if you're picky about where you sleep. Or, plan to settle into a rental apartment or furnished bungalow during the high season. Visitors who prefer to experience Argentina's big sky at night can explore nearby campgrounds.
