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.

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
