Esquel is the gateway to Los Alerces National Park, one of the most beautiful parks in the Andean Patagonian sector. The majestic landscape, which treasures ancient forests of larch trees, is impressive. There are numerous trails through the mountains, where you can go horseback riding or trekking.

There are also sites for rafting, fishing and skiing. The ski resort La Hoya is very close to the urban area, with easy access and quality services. It is one of the places in Patagonia where you can ski until early spring.
