OUTLINE

It is the most important tourist centre of the Chubut mountain range standing over a beatiful mountaineous valley.   
The city is located on the Esquel riverside and is surrounded by the Mount Zeta (the Zed letter), Mount 21, La Cruz (the Cross) and Mount Nahuel Pan; These mountain's slopes make up a great amphitheatre where the different forest lands and vegetations of the valley stand out giving birth to a charming landscape in which millenarian trees, crystal water rivers and hundreds of water mirrors protected by thick woods converge delineating a zone for the astonishment, the enjoyment and the adrenaline.
Its main attractions are concentrated on the winter and summer seasons, but you will have the possibility to enjoy this city all the year long.
The most interesting tourist points are the ski runs of La Hoya in winter and Los Alerces National Park with its millenarian woods in summer. 
It offers two types of excursions and adventure tourism activities, which you can enjoy both on your own or with the help of some local tourism agency or company. 
The commercial chain of clothing and equipment for the different activities such as fishing, skiing, mountaineering, etc; guarantee a good level of provision.
The regional products, such as the handicraft textiles made by the descendants of aboriginals and the authochtonous gastronomic delights, can be enjoyed or bought in restaurants or specialized shops. 
As a tourist city per excellence, it posseses an important infrastructure with modern hotels, hostelries, cabins, residences, restaurants, cafeterias, tea houses, casino and discotheques.
