Located just 40 miles north of Bariloche, on the banks of the Limay River, is the Enchanted Valley. The area gained its evocative name thanks largely to the presence of vivid volcanic rock formations, eroded over time by the fierce Patagonian wind and rain. The phenomenon has produced a number of 'figures' here, including a lion, a castle, a tower and even a train, if you can use your imagination.

The area also provides a home to more than 80 bird species and several walks afford sightings of some of these, as well as some spectacular views. Caves used by nomadic tribes for shelter can also be visited, giving an insight into their lifestyle many centuries ago.
