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

This was the most amazing attraction we visited in Bariloche. We were lucky to go to Tronador in a sunny day. I believe the view is not the same if it is raining or cloudy. We rented a car and got there pretty easily. In our opinion, it was a much better experience than going with a tour company, when... More

We drove from San Calos de Bariloche, probably one of the most spectacular drives. In winter it's a Ski resort and quite crowded.

This trip was a bit long, but it was worth it. The moment when you listen to Tronador (that could be translated as Thundering), you will truly believe there's a storm somwhere! It offers a unique moment, where once again you can be amazed on how incredible nature is!

magnificent views. the lakes were like mirrors, the black glacier is remarkable and nature appears so powerful. 120km of dirt roads are quite troubling. still, it was worth it

We did a full day trip with CAB (Club Andino Bariloche) that includes trekking at Cerro Tronador. It was an amazing trip and the trekking in the forest, super beautiful! To have lunch with the view of Cerro Tronador and its waterfalls was fantastic. You can also see the glacier Ventisquero negro at the base of Cerro Tronador.
