Overall rating

4.4 / 5

based on 50 reviews

The trip is a little long, but we make a few stops along the way. The landscape is beautiful and the promenade is crowned with the beautiful view of Lake Puelo. The little town of El Bolsón is beautiful and has recently been renovated. A very pleasant day is spent on this tour, which can also be done by people with low mobility, since it is not necessary to walk a lot.
