Trekking and hiking have become very popular in the last few years. There are few destinations that can match Argentina's magnificent settings and regional splendor. Many regions offer treks that last anywhere from half a day to a number of weeks. In particular, the Andes mountains provide the perfect atmosphere and backdrop to many trekking opportunities.
Usually a professional guide takes a group of trekkers or hikers on the adventure while cooks and other personnel prepare food and take care of all the necessities. Many trekking tours stay overnight in beautiful and desolate parts where camping is the most common form of lodging. Other tours stay at small inns and hotels on the way.
