El Bolson Day Trip from Bariloche

Summary

After pickup from your Bariloche hotel, settle into your coach for the scenic 75-mile (120-km) ride along Lake Gutierrez, Lake Mascardi and Lake Guillelmo. Listen to commentary from your guide as you continue through spectacular Cañadon de la Mosca and Pampa del Toro until you reach the town of El Bolson. El Bolson is well-known for its mild climate and fertile soil, which makes it an agricultural hotbed for products like berries, apples, pears, and cherries. Hops also grow very well here, which contribute to El Bolson's booming beer-making trade. Sample the fruit and local brews while perusing the shops in town, stopping for a healthy lunch (own expense). Visit the bustling outdoor market that sells foodstuffs, woodwork, leatherwork, and other crafts by local artisans. Learn about how hippies from Buenos Aires moved here in droves in the 1960s and declared it an 'ecological municipality' due to its natural foods establishments and organic farms. Board the bus to continue exploring nearby Chubut province. Visit Pitriquilton Hill, home to many splendid hiking trails, a small ski resort, and Las Golondrinas Farm. Afterward, enjoy the picturesque return trip to Bariloche and drop-off at your hotel.
