The black glacier is different from its white counterpart but not as spectacular. And one has to travel two hour one way, mostly dirt road. So if you decide to go you should wait for a fine day.

The road to the end near the glaciers is not good. It is a rough dirt road but if you want to have a great visit, you'll have to put up with it. Before you set out on your trip, check if the road is open for your travel direction.

This is a full day trip. We took a tour for this. We departed at 8 am. Then we left Bariloche through a paved road for about 40 mins. We made several stops for pictures. Then we took an unpaved road for about 1.5 hrs. which was ok initially because of the explanations from the guide but it felt long... More

I booked this tour on our first evening at a travel agency in the main street. The next day morning, we were picked up from the hostel by a mini van @9 and we drive towards the national park. Nice drive with eye catching views on the way. The roads are bumpy inside the park which is around 50km. That's... More

We drove to the mount with a rental car and no one was up in the info point to give us directions. After paying the park entrance we even had to pay for toilets in Pampa Linda and people from the restaurants and the camping couldn't speak English or give any direction. We ended up walking in a long trail... More

We were there with an excursion. If you are two or more, it's better to rent a car you will be able to stop for pictures anytime you like

If you like offroad adventures rent a car and head up to tronador. The way till there is beautiful and you have the opportunity to stop by some panoramic sceneries and take nice and wild photos... many hours between going and getting back to bariloche but totally worth it

Drove to the park and stopped off at many places on the way. The driver is great with amazing scenery. Highly recommend driving because of the freedom it gives you. Black glacier and surrounding area is really beautiful. Spend time to relax and take in the scenery.

I did a standard tour of the Black Glacier, which included a simple 5-hour hike through pretty countryside and forests and arrive to a mirador to view the glacier. You are first picked up in a minivan and driven to the mirador. Along the way, you see beautiful mountain scenery and scenic lakes. After that, you start the hike, on... More
