This Patagonian town in southern Argentina is beautiful whatever the weather. The town centre itself has been designed in the Alpine style and enjoys a stunning position on the banks of the Nahuel Huapi Lake. Essential highlights in the town centre include sampling the local chocolate, said to be amongst the very best in Argentina and perhaps even, the world. Those with car hire can explore the stunning surroundings including the Nahuel Huapi Lake National Park and the Patagonian Andes beyond. In the winter months skiing and snowboarding are hugely popular particularly at the Cerro Catedral Ski Resort. Come summer the mountains become a hotspot for hiking and mountaineering. All year round brave visitors enjoy bathing in the clean, blue and sometimes chilly waters of the Nahuel Hapai Lake.
