When most people think of epic golf vacation destinations, the majestic world of Patagonia may not be top of mind, but if you love adventure and an escape from the everyday grind, then add this magical destination to your bucket list.

San Carlos de Bariloche, more commonly known as Bariloche, is a beautiful lake town located about 850 miles southwest of Buenos Aires, nestled within Nahuel Huapi National Park, Argentina’s oldest national park. The town is a two hour and 20-minute flight from Buenos Aires—a lengthy trip to the depths of South America, yes, but the experience is well worth the trek. With countless outdoor activities, endless panoramic views and delicious food to satiate your appetite, it’s the perfect getaway for a couple, group of friends or the entire family. A half-hour drive from the city center is where you’ll find Llao Llao Resort, Golf and Spa—located atop a hill with 360-degree views of the surrounding lakes, forests, and mountains, making this a perfect retreat for nature lovers.
