The Legend of Dwarves and Fairies in El Bols贸n

The belief in fairies and forest dwarves is a part of El Bols贸n culture. Legend has it that they are the protectors of the woods. They are known to frolic amongst the old forests, playing in the waterfalls and meadows. They are happy little beings that enjoy playing pranks on humans and each other. In the evenings they run through campsites, picking up litter and objects left behind by humans, helping to clean up Patagonian forests. They enjoy bathing in the waterfalls and making sure the water remains pure. They also are known for playing with magical energy balls that have the ability to pass positive vibes to all that comes within their shpere of influence.

Both locals and visitors have stories of sightings. You too may be able to see one. There are a few requirements though. First you must believe. You must enter the forest with an open mind and an appreciation for fantasy. Secondly, you must show complete respect to nature and children. Thirdly, and most importantly, one should enter the forest without fear. So, while taking in the El Bols贸n landscape keep your eyes open. You may just realize that fantasy is only another aspect of reality.
