Caviahue and Copahue region, in Neuquén province, represents a real paradise for mountain lovers, especially in winter time. The height above sea level (1600), the excellent location at the base of the legendary Copahue Volcano and the thermal aroma make this a magical world. The snow builds up over several months and invites you to live and enjoy winter sports.
