Awesome Views

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

This is an awesome little bike circuit in Bariloche. It's about 25km through rolling hills with sweeping views and lots of side adventures. Along the way we visited the Llao Llao hotel, Bosque de Arrayanes, Lago Escondido, Gilberts (amazing beer!), and the lookout at the top of the last climb. Highly recommended!!

Within the Circuito Chico tour -which is worth doing only if you have time- there is a marvellous place I keep going back to everytime I´m in Bariloche. At the end of the 20 bus line, about 20 kilometers from the Civic Center, lies Puerto Pañuelo, which is the Port of Bariloche. With the Port to your right and the... More

After driving to Villa la Angostura and to La Cascada Los Alerces and seeing the amazing and beautiful landscape, this trip was not worth the monotonous drive. The stopping points are not labeled so its up to you to figure out where to stop. Drive to El Bolson instead or drive through the Circuito Grande.

Fantastic way to spend a day. Each time you stop to take a photo of the "postcard view", the view at the next stop is even better. Many uphills (and many downhills) - well worth it.
