Bariloche, Bolson or Esquel shopping and money exchange.
Major credit cards and US dollars are widely accepted everywhere in Argentina. Money exchange is becoming more and more stable in our country, however we will update you with the proper exchange rates at the time of your trip. Bariloche has many small leather and wool-clothing shops. Also wood and silver handcrafters along with shoe or boots makers will show you their beautiful products. Chocolate, ice-cream, parrilla (barbecue), smoked game (red deer, trout, wild boar) and pasta makers will tempt you to step into their shops. Bolson is well known for having the best fine fruit (berries) and small breweries in the country. This town has the first "hippie" settlements in Argentina during the "flower power époque", and there are still many of them around.
Non Fishing Companions Activities
Bariloche is surrounded by the gorgeous Nahuel Huapi National Park and located besides Nahuel Huapi lake. There are many activities we can take you to, from horseback rides to white waters rafting trips, from quiet forest hiking to bird-watching, and to see the most outstanding landscapes in the world. This is why more non fishing companions are coming every year looking for their trip of a life-time.
