After leaving Bariloche, the road winds south through spectacular mountain scenery,until 2 hrs later you reach El Bolson. By fortune, I wanted to try out some modern mountain bikes, so I hired one from a dealer near the municipal offices. Where can I go ? El Bosque!!! The 28 gears got a workout up the steep trail to the refugio ( 1.5 hrs ) yes Think Twice ! It really was steep, although you are rewarded with spectacular valley views. In spring with snow this would be very pretty. At the refugio there is food available for walkers recovering before the descent ( much faster by bike). I later visited the Hippie Markets in El Bolson Town- really good quality merchandise and well organised. I had another excellent take away meal from the food sellers here who had very hygienic caravans. Overall , a great little town with very pretty attractions.
