If you want to take gifts back home, chocolate, berry jams and local handicrafts are the traditional souvenirs of the area.
After nurturing your spirit with the irresistible charm of Patagonian nature and quenching your thirst for adventure touring the circuits of the region, going back home makes you want to pass on the magic you’ve experienced in San Martín de los Andes; but this magic is not exclusively revealed in pictures and anecdotes…
This is why, amid stories and memories describing the quietness of the place, the family experiences, the forest, Lanín volcano or any of the lakes in the region, the best is to surprise your relatives and friends with exquisite handmade products such as rose hip, raspberry, elderberry (sauco) or strawberry jams and the classic chocolate.
The local handicrafts are made from an ample selection of regional materials like wood, stone and wool. You will also find pottery, paintings by local artists, silver, dried flowers and a whole world of refined products that reveal the spirit of the Andean forest, the best choice when you want to take home a small piece of Patagonia.
