For us, this was quite a strenuous day's walk (we are both 60 and fairly fit) but well worth it for the views all the way up, as well as the stunning panorama at the summit, including Cerro Tronador. We stopped for two short breaks at the Refugio Lopez on the way up and down (with a beer on the... More

It's a steep way up to Cerro Lopez, back from where the bus drops you off... but the 16km hike is totally worth the effort! As you go up, the view becomes more and more breathtaking. The Roca Negra was closed, but we went all the way to the Abrigo, crossing some patches of recently fallen snow (uncommon in January!).... More

Well-marked hiking trail with breathtaking views. Various distances available, right up to the refuge where one can sleep overnight, or not. There is also the option of descent down the other side. Rock climbing opportunities at the falls.

This is a walk/climb with levels/ distances to suit most people. After catching the number 10 bus from Bariloche you start a steep ascent for about 45 minutes till you reach Roca Negra - this is a largish refugio with a good food selection. If you have small children this may the extent of your day out - otherwise you... More

The starting point is in the middle of the forest. As long as you go higher, the trees get smaller, the open areas bigger, and more and more rocks seem to appear. The view from the Cerro Lopez lodge is incredible. And the summit is just an hour from such point. A total trip of 4-6 hours with one of... More

We hiked up to the refugio and had a burger (about 1.5-2 hours each way) The trail is well marked and there are great views most of the way up. You can access the trailhead via the public bus that passes several times a day. (I think it was #10?)

The walk up is quite steep for the first hour and on loose rocks and dirt. But when you remember it is not a race and take the time to turn around and look back over the lake it is a stunning view. After 45 minutes you get to this great new cafe/restaurant at Roca Negra - good sandwiches and... More
