El Bolson is a beautiful village located in a fertile valley at the Comarca Andina, near Bariloche, in Argentina. Close to national parks and Los Andes, it’s a perfect place to stay before starting a trek trough lakes, rivers and the mountains. In the town, you can enjoy good music, handicraft market in Plaza Pagano, delicious local ice-creams, and the view of Piltry Mountain.

The city is a small refuge of hippie souls. If you want to try this atmosphere, a good way is to camp near the Quemquemtreu River. If you like organic food, and to sleep in the forest, Carlota and Mario can offer you a nice place to stay at Ni Nada Camp, where you will learn more about organic farms. Music is always present in the village, and you can go out on all nights to listen local bands.
