San Martin de los Andes, Argentina

Trek 1,000-year-old forests, spot local marsupials, ski untouched slopes, catch teeming trout or just enjoy the fine food and laid-back nightlife of the town itself; San Martin de Los Andes commands pole position in the middle of the renowned Seven Lakes area snaking down the Chilean border to bigger, brasher San Carlos de Bariloche. Established a little over 100 years ago on the site of the indigenous Puelches’ winter retreat, San Martin has been transformed of late by creature- and comfort-loving city folk from Buenos Aires, bringing just the right amount of porteño pretension to the thrills and spills of life in the wild.
