  • Travel in La Trochita patagonic transports you in time and allows you to enjoy the beautiful scenery of Esquel from another perspective. I appreciate the kindness of the head of the station, Mr. Goyeneche, and staff who kindly rescheduled my trip so that I could enjoy valuable travel. Esquel, Trevelin, la Trochita, everything invites you to return. Thank you!!!

  • Make the walk in the Trochita is like have a journey in time and return to the era of the Welsh settlement in Patagonia. It is an experience that can be repeated since according to season that you make it is a different show... In winter the train for the snowy mountains and spring/summer is filled with green... I cannot do so whenever I go back to Esquel
