It is a little village close to the frontier with Chile. It is located between two mountain ranges.

Locals are hospitable people always offering the best places to visit and the most delicious products.

This city was declared no-nuclear zone and an ecological municipality because people have a special style of life.

It does not matter the time of the year because this city offers many activities.

During summer and autumn, the main activity is rafting on the Azul River, which is a fast flowing impressive river.

But you can also fly like a bird. Here, it is one of the top spots for paragliding. The launches take place from the launching slope of the Piltriquitrón Mountain. The tourist can enjoy a tandem flight with an instructor.

The best moment to visit the farms to see their production is during summer time. This city is the National Capital of Soft Fruit (raspberries, strawberries, blueberries, cherries, black and red currants). In fact, this area is recognized for producing organic food items, which are well-known all over Argentina.

Visiting some of these farms is an amazing stroll. Some of them are Humus, this farm produces organic soft fruit and organic cheese; Cabana Micó, this farm offers tours of the fruit plantations and sells jams, preserves, and fresh fruit; and Establecimiento Río Azul, this farm has one of the best panoramic views in the area, and offers gourmet products and horse riding along the paths of the Forest Reserve of the Azul River.

Hiking is the ideal activity for the whole year round. In the Bolsón area, there are thirteen mountain refuge huts, and trails for all levels of stamina.

You may have a pleasant walk to Cerro Amigo or a three-day hike to the Roca del Tiempo (Rock of Time). For this activity, you should take appropriate clothing, shoes, and something to drink and eat. 

In winter, skiers and snowboarders meet up on Cerro Perito Moreno, the local mountain suitable for skiing.

Bolsón is a place to come whenever you want because there are many activities to do the whole year round. It is the perfect city to stay as long as you like.
