Great bike circuit. Quite tough, not for the faint hearted. We spent about 6 or 7 hours going around this circuit. Stopping off at spots like cerro Lao Lao. climbing that took about an hour ( can´t quite remember) , Also Swimming in the lake. Visiting lake escondido etc.. The circuit itself has its ups and downs. Many hills which... 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.

We got the number 20 (can also get 22) bus for 7 pesos each (buy ticket from kiosk opposite) from Bariloche centre on the San Martin road to KM18, 100m past a small roundabout is Cordillera bikes where we rented bikes for the day for 150 pesos. The route (25km of cycling) is really obvious and on tarmac. We locked... More

I recommend you do a tour on the first days of your stay and then rent a car to see or stay longer the points you find most interesting, its a great tour and not to long!

First things first, the scenery is absolutely stunning and frankly, my words will simply not do it justice so I wont ramble on about the crystal clear blue lakes in the alpine setting. What I will do however, is give you a low down on the tour so you can get a better idea of what to expect...so: - Number... More

yes. The circuit is beautiful but there are easier ways to enjoy the scenery than puffing up and down 35km on a bike. We saw several out of breath and miserable looking bikers. Those that were whizzing by were also not enjoying the scenery. We took the bus, enjoyed the passing scenery through the windows, got down near the end,... More

The views on this circuit are amazing, but most of the time on a bike you are on a normal road with no views. I would have much rather rented a car and done this which would have saved a ton of time and would have also allowed me to drive to a lot of other places around Bariloche in... More

If you can, get your own wheels and take your time. Hit all the paths and trails. So much to see, and no park entrance fee! I really liked the trail to Arrayan trees and also the Playa at Villa Tacul.

This is a long day but well worth this tour. You are on one boat, one catamaran, one sailboat and 3 buses. You depart Bariloche mid-morning. The sights along the way are beautiful. The boats travel at a perfect speed where you can enjoy sitting on the top level to get a great view of the mountains. You are surrounded... More
