El Bolson

3.7
El Bolson tourism thrives largely thanks to the area's outstanding opportunities for fly fishing, river rafting, hiking, climbing, and cycling across a quiet landscape squeezed between two towering mountain ranges. Hippies made this town popular in the 1970s, drawn by El Bolson's mellow atmosphere, affordable accommodations, and colorful handicrafts markets. Today, El Bolson vacations appeal to domestic and foreign tourists wishing to escape the overcrowded Bariloche, located a couple hours' drive to the north. The town also represents a popular shopping destination, famed for offering a range of locally made cheeses, beers, jams, and chocolate treats.
