Sky, float trips, horseback riding, rafting, bird watching, sport fishing, visits to the Ice Tunnels, Los Alerces National Park,
are some of the things that can be done in Esquel.
It is a ski and snowboard center, located 13 km from the city of Esquel in the province of Chubut, Argentina. The southern orientation of the hill means that its slopes receive little insolation, thus creating the necessary conditions for the formation of powder snow that characterizes it and makes it attractive internationally. As its name indicates, it has the shape of a hole or amphitheater located behind the path of the Sun in the sky, for which reason it retains snow until the month of October, when you can practice the sport with little clothing. It has sectors for the practice of alpine skiing suitable for beginners, advanced, experts and competition; an area for cross-country skiing and a snowpark.
Los Alerces National Park is a large protected area located in the Province of Chubut, Argentina. Includes Lake Futalaufquen, Lake Verde, Lake Krüger,
Lake Rivadavia, Menéndez and River Arrayanes. For its incredible landscapes is considered one of the most beautiful national parks of Argentina.
A unique tourist train in the world, La Trochita or Old Patagonian Express.
A train that today constitutes a true walking museum, since its structure and roads on which it circulates are a relic.
But not only the machine itself is attractive and stands out on other trains in the world. Its added value is the landscape it walks through.
The steam of La Trochita dissipates in the clean Patagonian sky. His infrequent wooden carriages roll on a very narrow track on a steppe lined with wild flowers and there,
walking, is lost between the imposing frame of Chubut mountain range.
Every year in winter Esquel dresses up as a party and everyone present, both the local community and those visiting the destination at that time,
are part of a unique event where the queen and her princesses are chosen to represent the city at events Local, regional, provincial and national levels.
During the event there is a Fair of Craftsmen so that the tourists can acquire the regional products and the handicrafts made by the inhabitants of the zone
and bordering ones. As well as shows of artists recognized regional and nationally.
It is a competition that brings together athletes from the country and neighboring countries as well. This is the Tetratlón Douglas Berwyn
that is realized in the month of September every year.
This event consists of four sports disciplines that challenge competitors to display all their wisdom and dexterity to meet the winning goal.
A few kilometers from Esquel you can visit a spectacular lake, with crystalline waters and immersed in the Andean Patagonian forest.
It is the lake Krugger bathed by glacial sediments that give a particular coloration to its waters and give it a unique beauty that no one leaves indifferent.
