Esquel

Rather than being an attraction on its own, the town of Esquel is a good base from which to see a number of area sights. There's good skiing (cheaper than Bariloche) a short distance north of town, and Los Alerces National Park is about 40 mi/60 km west. Rail enthusiasts will want to ride the narrow-gauge train, La Trochita (also called the "Old Patagonian Express"), that steams the 60 mi/100 km between El Maiten and Esquel. South of Esquel is the Welsh-influenced town of Trevelin. 900 mi/1,450 km southwest of Buenos Aires.
