Popular festivals are part of the intangible heritage of a community, and a tourist product that reflects the culture and the tradition of the different regions, in which all the cultural expressions are included as a reminder of events, rituals and customs.

They represent the expressions of memory and collective life, essential for the creation of social bonds and the definition of identity.
This means that collective works are orally transmitted, which is why they tend to change as time passes by, by means of a communal recreational process.

Given its ephemeral nature, this heritage is highly vulnerable. Therefore, popular festivals are a tourist attraction that requires a special consideration for its development.

The development of this type of events contributes to the preservation and validation of the local identity, the folklore, and the historical and artistic resources of a community, and the relationship of people with this community.

Neuquén (in mapuche language, “daring, and vehement”) has strong cultural roots on the millenarian mapuche tradition (mapu – land, che – people).

Presently many mapuche communities live in Neuquén territory, especially in Patagonia of Lakes, and they give value to their vision of the world and their customs inviting people to visit their lands and share their traditions.

This tradition is reflected on each everyday life expression of these communities. Religion, music, handicrafts and cooking keep the tradition of these people alive.
In the course of time, the mapuche people have kept the identity of their products. At present, craftsmen mainly work on weaving and wood carving and all the handicrafts are made using techniques that have been passed from generation to generation.
In the town of Villa Pehuenia, the mapuche Puel community has been running successfully, and for several years, the Batea Mahuida Snow Park.

This tourist modality looks to create a more direct relationship with nature, in which people worry for the preservation of the natural and cultural resources of the area where they practise recreational activities.

Within nature tourism, camping is one of the most practised and widely spread tourist recreational activities in the natural areas of the province, whether protected areas or not. One of the most distinctive offers of this type of spaces, and one that is on the increase, is the possibility to spend the night surrounded by nature.

What to do.
Meet people from different places, share a bonfire, go trekking, stare at the sky, go fishing, watch flora and fauna from the place, do some adventure activities, tour beautiful places on horseback or by bicycle or just sleep in touch with nature, in privileged places where camping can become the best lodging option. Those are some of the options that the camping areas of the province have to offer.

Where to camp.
Neuquén has a large amount of camping sites that offer different services depending on the tourist area and its development.
In general, the camping sites of the province are places of great scenic beauty located on the banks of lakes or mountain rivers. A high percentage of camping sites lie within the jurisdiction of national parks or natural protected areas. Besides, there are some administered by mapuche communities, which allow campers to interact with members of this interesting culture.

The greatest amount of camping sites is concentrated mostly in Patagonia of Lakes, a tourist area that is highly visited during summer by campers from different points of the country and from abroad, mainly by the seven lakes route.

However, in the rest of the tourist areas, you can find different types of camping sites, prepared to satisfy the needs of all kinds of visitors.
