Nature’s Valley is geared towards the constant stream of filthy hikers returning from the wilderness. Its only shop, the Nature’s Valley Trading Store, sells emergency camping essentials and Otter memorabilia, and the tree in the adjacent restaurant courtyard is an arboreal graveyard, adorned with worn-out footwear that didn’t survive the trail.
Here in the valley of La Anita, nothing can disturb the tranquility. Set off and explore unspoiled nature, relax in the indoor pool and savor delicious cuisine while taking in the incredible views of glaciers, the largest lake in Argentina and the Andes Mountains.
