Esquel

National Parks · Landmarks · Bodies of Water
Although Welsh immigrants arrived in this area in the mid-19th century, Esquel was officially founded in 1906, which makes it a relatively young city by world standards. Despite the town's lack of impressive history and stunning architecture, a trip to Esquel takes visitors to a pleasant area in Argentine Patagonia dominated by the foothills of several major mountain ranges. Camping and hiking are among the tops things to do in Esquel, which serves as a good base for exploring the nearby national park and taking trips on a narrow-gauge train, said to represent the world's southernmost railway line. Use our Argentina trip planner to arrange your visit to Esquel and other destinations in Argentina.
