The scenery is spectacular. If you can handle the very long nearly 3 hours bus ride there, then I recommend you go as it's just a gorgeous landscape. I would not recommend it if you are travelling with children under 12 though, as not only is the drive long but here is quite a bit of rough terrain and rock... More

The drive up to Cerro Tronador is 31km from the entrance, which takes about an hour and a half. Add an additional 45 minutes from Bariloche. The whole trip is beautiful. The views are fantastic and it is worth seeing the glacier (while they still exist). If you're into food, I'd recommend taking something for a picnic

If you want to spend a few days trekking through mountains, enjoying lakes and spending nights at bungalows at the top of the mountains, this is a unique experience you could hold. We hike around 100 km from Catedral, center bariloche up to Tronador, the boundary with Chile

Did a tour around Bariloche and one of the stops was the Cerro Tronador where it was optional to go and look. Paid, the admission to get on the chair lift and ascended to the top of the mountain. The views were phenomenal, surrounded by the Nahuel Huapi lake and many more. We were allowed to be there 15 mins... More

Another must do in Bariloche. It takes up to 2 hours to get there (by bus or car). The trip is worth it for the second best landscape in Bariloche. You must pay A$ 80 in order to enter the park. You must be at the entrance before 1:00pm. The "Black Glacier" is incredible

We planned a three day excursion on the Cerro Tronador. I am a 60 year old man. The hike up was listed at a 4-5 hour hike. It took us 6.4 hours. It was challenging but worth the hike up. Stayed the night at Otto Meiling Refugio. Next morning a hike across the Glacier. Spending the night at another refugio.... More
