- Savage Beauty One day a lake is silent, a mirror of its surrounding mountains. Another day waves are crashing on its shores, wind tears limbs from trees.
- The Great Outdoors Well-marked trails in the national parks lead into a world of strange forests, leaping waterfalls, and magnificent vistas. Commercial river rafting or kayaking might carry you to Chile.
- Water, Water Everywhere 40 different lakes, seven major rivers flowing into two oceans, and you can spend days just staring at Nahuel Huapi Lake with its shoreline disappearing under distant peaks and volcanoes.
- Ski in Summer In the northern Lake District of Patagonia, June through September is ski season on the slopes of Cerro Catedral near Bariloche, and Cerro Chapelco, near San Martín de los Andes.
