Trekking enthusiasts can embark on the renowned 'W Circuit' in Torres del Paine National Park, immersing themselves in the untamed beauty of jagged peaks, turquoise lakes, and rugged glaciers.

For those seeking tranquillity and rejuvenation, the thermal springs of Copahue are a hidden gem. Soak in the natural hot springs amidst snow-capped mountains, providing the perfect blend of relaxation and natural beauty. The region also offers excellent opportunities for hiking, fishing, and birdwatching, ensuring a well-rounded experience for outdoor enthusiasts.
