Argentina’s alpine town par excellence, Bariloche can stake a reasonable claim to be South America’s epicentre for outdoor activities. The town’s location, sandwiched between lakes and mountains, makes those dream holiday itineraries eminently doable: kayak the afternoon away after a morning stroll in the hills? No problem. Learn sailing or fishing between mountain biking descents? A cinch. Need a rest day? Then how about drinking in the rugged views of National Park Nahuel Huapi (Argentina’s oldest) while eating up some of Argentina’s best food, including delicious mountain specialities of trout and venison.
