Nice little trek but I felt to get the most from it was to walk up. There is a ski lift type transport to the top. But I´d recommend walking which doesn´t take long.

You can either take a steep hike up or the chair lift to the mirador at the top of Cerro Campanario. Note that chairlift tickets are only sold for a two-way journey. Views from the mirador are unparalleled and you can see all the mountains, lakes and pastures around Bariloche on a clear day. There is a small cafe at... More

Take bus 20 from town heading west and watch for signs for cerro campanario (however, our bus driver ended up yelling out the stop anyways). Bus cost about 7 pesos each way. The trail head is behind the massive Campanario sign. BE AWARE: the trail is steep and probably a nightmare in the rain! Luckily, we had a dry day... More

We decided to hike up the hill to the campanario instead of taking the chairlift. We made it even though the trail isn't well marked and it tends to split off. Once you get to the top, you are rewarded with spectacular views of the surrounding lakes and mountains. Coming back down, we lost the trail and hiked through the... More

Really easy to get to, hop on the 20 bus from the Centro Civico, about KM17/18 the Bus Driver shouts the stop as so many people get off there, say half an hour to get there. the path (not sign posted, but there is nowhere else to go!) is off to the side of the cable car AR$70 - easier... More

We had a half day before a 5pm flight out of Bariloche, so we were looking for a nice hike with maximum views. Originally, we were going to do Cerro Campanario and then bike part of Circuito Chico, but after seeing the amazing panoramic views, we spent all of our time at Campanario! You can take the chairlift up, but... More

Since it's the easiest to climb and also you have a chairlift to go up to buy a cup of coffee and enjoy an amazing view, one of the best's and more complete of Bariloche

Excellent view specially if you go in a sunny day as I did. I really understood why the national geographic stated this place as one of the best views in all over the world! Worthy, worthy, worthy!

Having hiked Cerro Otto the day before, I can certainly recommend heading for Cerro Campanario over Cerro Otto anytime....unless you are a glutton for punishment and want a much more strenuous workout, in which case Cerro Otto wins hands down (check out my review re hiking underneath the teleferico at Otto). I believe both number 10 and 20 buses will... More
