El Bolsón in autumn See map

In autumn the skies are a little more cloudy than the rest of the season. It rains every two days. However, none of these details takes away El Bolsón attractives. The magic that has become a legend of dreamers, adventurers and hippies is still alive in all seasons.

In general, prices go down a bit and the fair no longer has the 300 artisans who are fighting for space between December and late February, but there are about 60 being most local resident.

El Bolson is not as cold as can be imagined. Although geography is reminiscent of the extreme of continental south, March is a good month to confirm. Jacket is required but we must not forget the light clothing, because the sun never goes away completely.

The city and its tourist routes work the same way as in high season. Among the options that you can do is go through the Millacó cabins and Candy and Jam Factory, located three blocks from City Hall.

Another interesting alternative is to fly over the area in a small plane of the local Aeroclub. Not all dare but the experience is comforting.

Places like El Hoyo and Epuyén are very close to El Bolson and own surprising geographies. In just one afternoon you can take a tour across them and also have a typical lunch accompanied by home made beer in the warmth of a fireplace.

The Piltriquitrón is the only problem. If the weather is good you can drive up to the lookout and have a privileged view of the valley. Instead, from the streets of downtown is difficult to see clearly his enormous presence because the low clouds are common in March. Not so in summer, as its sharpness and closeness to the people creates a sense of between oppression and delivery to the power of nature.

The fog that sits on top of the hill also makes it harder to visit the carving forest, about 100 m away from thelookout. This is because the lack of light prevents the strange effects of light and shadows that cross carved handicrafts, which are seen when the sun's rays are given in full. However is another experience, different but no minor.
