  • From Pampa Linda begin the ascent to this majestic Hill and its glaciers is wonderful. A foot or a horse is a gift? Reach the scree and carefully complete the ascent to the shelter, spend the night there to see the sky seems to be able to touch it with your hands. From there several possibilities, make Summit, walk on the ice of glaciers. Or simply rest to start the descent.

  • Without words. A unique place. The nature in its full expression. The Ventisquero Negro glacier roars at every moment. It is half tedious arrived. Are 50 km of gravel road, but the landscape of the road is unmatched.

  • A dormant volcano, which also serves as a reference point bordering between Chile and Argentina. You can get with an excursion or in vehicle own easily. The entrance to Nahuel Huapi National Park has hours of ascent and descent, to take into account. The landscape is impressive, the Lakes Gutiérrez and mascardi coast mainly. Is can learn much of the history and the flora and fauna of the place, besides the geology. Inside the Park, along the way, there are hostels and campsites as an option if one wants to percnotar, always with the due care and respecting the indications of the Rangers. The cerro tronador and its glaciers with ice eternal this between them best excursions in the region.
