This was such a nice way to spend an afternoon. While the uphills were a bit demanding at times (I was in shape at one point not so long ago!), the views made all the work worth... read more

The Circuito Chico was a lovely. The only reason I gave it a low rating, is that in reality, the only thing about this tour that is worth seeing and/or doing is the chair lifts. The problem is, if you do the chair lift as part of the tour, you only get 1 hour or so, so it's very rushed.... More

We were supposed to get the English tour and ended up with a Spanish speaking driver in a private tour. Not what we expected. However, the majesty of the area and the views, combined with my son's pretty good command of the language allowed us to really enjoy the circuit. It probably would have been Excellent if we had a...

First of all, I would like to say that I didn't rate it "Excellent" just because there are other wonderful attractions in Bariloche. It's well worth taking this tour. If you are in a good shape, do it by bike. It's got a couple of hills, but nothing impossible.

This tour is about views. You will get the best views from Bariloche, and surroundings. Including the Llao-Llao hotel. Worth to do it.

Well worth taking this tour. You will be taken to the tops of a couple of mountains that offer breath taking views of the surrounding area and the many lakes around Bariloche.

If you're in decent shape, bike circuito chico. It's got a bunch of steep hills, but they're not for long distances. If you get tired, just hop off and walk your bike for a bit. The alternative way to do the circuit is by car. Lame. Get out and enjoy nature. Your bike will come with a lock so you... More

It is a short travel, and you can have really great views from the landscape of Bariloche. Recommendable!

You want to do this circuit on a bike for the following reasons : - great and cheap outdoor day activity - beautiful Lake views and beaches - relaxing day while still doing some sports - laughing with people that don't know how to operate bike gears or are constantly stepping of the bike when going uphill

This is a must in Bariloche. It takes about 4 hours and costs only $150 Argentinian pesos, which is a bargain. The very best part was the Campanario mountain. For an optional cost, you take a chairlift to the top of the mountain, from where you have outstandingly beautiful views of the lake and the area. It was extremely windy... More
