The province of Chubut is one of the largest Patagonian Lands and its touristic point closest to Buenos Aires is the city of Puerto Madryn, 1.382 Kms distant. Its maritime coastland is one of the richest sites as far as species diversity is concerned.

Bird Watching - mainly penguins - happens to be the preferred choice for many visitors. Sea lions, seals, killer whales and the Southern Right Whale are the other main characters of this natural stage.

Adventure activities are also an option: winter activities at centers like La Hoya, trekking, mountain activities, bike tours, canoeing, rafting or paragliding. For those willing to discover the cultural influences of each region, some towns like Trevelin or Gaiman keep almost intact certain features of the Welsh culture.

The tea ceremony, together with the elaboration of traditional cakes, is an experience worth to be “tasted”.

Its national parks, among which outstands the Los Alerces National Park, are suitable for adventure and ecotourism, mainly the observation and bird watching and the wide variety of their rich flora and fauna species.

Tourists are seduced by the Patagonian ancient expresstrain La Trochita, called that way because of the narrow separation between its rails. Its old wooden wagons are ideal to enjoy the circuit that covers part of the southern lands and permits to unveil the region’s unmistakable charm.

Cerro Bayo

At only 5 miles from Villa La Angostura, a cozy little mountain village on the northwestern margin of the Nahuel Huapi Lake, in the middle of the Patagonian Andes. Known as the “Boutique Ski Center”, Cerro Bayo offers at its slopes a privileged panoramic view of the lake, the Andes and its forests. Its 840 acres, 12 elevation means and 23 slopes are suitable for countless snow activities, thought for all ages: Nordic ski, carving, extreme ski, freestyle, Alpine ski, ski touring, 4-wheelers, canopy and snowshoe walks. It is also scenario of other traditional sports like Rugby X-Treme and snow polo. The exclusive nature of this ski resort is reflected in its qualified services and personalized attention which is mostly focused on families. Children can play in the snow, take lessons with qualified instructors and enjoy the activities proposed by the “Kids Club” while their parents enjoy a hot chocolate at the mount’s coffeehouses. From Villa La Angostura, the Seven Lakes Circuit takes to protected natural scenarios, classics of the Andean Patagonia. From the little village’s pier depart boats to San Carlos de Bariloche, with intermediate stops at Arrayanes National Park, where its pathways invite to quiet walks. This National Park is also accessible by road, by bike or on foot, by a signaled road that starts in the village. Heading to the North, the so called “Circuito Grande” invites to walk through the Nahuel Huapi National Park. There is a gravel road that crosses hillsides and forests to reach Traful lake and the little villa with the same name. The circuit’s viewpoints offer amazing postcards of the landscape. Returning to La Angostura, in the confluence of Traful and Limay rivers, Valle Encantado appears as a golden snapshot at sunset. These national parks in winter offer different activities and recreational proposals, like horseback ridings at rural environments, kayaking and rafting on the Limay River, mountain bike, fly fishing, 4x4 trips and trekking by Huella Andina Pathway. To go to Villa La Angostura, visitors may take a flight to the neighbor city of San Carlos de Bariloche and, in high season, also to San Martín de los Andes.
