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

We had a lovely ride on a beautiful day in Bariloche. The real purpose for this visit is the amazing views at the top. Our visit was on a lovely clear day and we could see for miles. There is a little cafe on top with coffee, lunch and some souvenirs. We spent some time, took plenty of photos and... More

You can hike up the path or take the gondola for 45AR$ roundtrip. The hike takes about 30-45 minutes and is very steep but a fun short hike for those interested. At the top, you get panoramic views of the 7 lakes region, and it is breathtaking!! There is a restaurant at the top as well with sandwiches and hamburgers... More

The views from the small complex at the top of the chairlift are truly amazing; mountains, lakes and forests surround the location on all sides, and in the distance (on the opposite side of the chairlift from the main viewing platform) you can look back on Bariloche itself. A ticket for the chairlift (up and down) costs ARS90; it is... More

It's right on the bus route and is very easy to get to. There is a chairlift up the mountain--interesting feature--no footrest. So feet dangle as we ascend up the hill. Once up, such beautiful views greet us...such a rewarding experience with the least amount of effort!! Go early--and avoid the loads brought in by tour buses!!
