El Bolson is situated about 130kms (70 miles) south of San Carlos de Bariloche and is largely overlooked as a trekking area but has many great options and is a lot quieter than Bariloche. There are a total of 13 refuges offering a wide variety of trekking routes for all abilities. The refuges are mainly within the tree line/forested mountains but there are options for treks to access the mountain tops and knock off some summits! If you have any questions or find any out of date info on the site please contact me.
The trekking season in El Bolson is November - March. The high season of January and February will be busiest, especially at weekends. Due to its low elevations some of the refuges stay open all year.
Camping is possible at the refuges and a fee is payable. This includes the use of the toilet facilities.
Due to a recent incident, the tourist information office recommends you trek in at least a group of three.
A good place to start. Check out the overview map of the trekking trails.
