'Thunder' indeed

The 'calving' of the glaciers (4 times in a half hour) with the accompanying, echoing sound of thunder roaring was fantastic

The access to the Tranador is a long dirt road in the national park. The journey is well worth it for a brilliant mountain excursion

This is a good tour to give you a small taste of the Andes. Monte Tronador is an impressive mountain with glaciers draping off its flanks. The road on the way up is rough, but the bus made it with ease and scenery along the way was nice, with a couple of stops to stretch the legs. There is a... More

We drove to Cerro Tronador one sunny day which is such a good option. This way you can take your time and stop when're you want.There were many tour buses that drove the corners very fast. The cost to enter the park is 80 pesos per person.You have to be at the entrance by 2:00pm. It takes about 1 ½... More

We loved our day trip to Tronodor with our guide Dirk. He speaks many languages and knows all the best parts of the park. There are lots of visitors but he found a magical place with no people by the river to eat the amazing gourmet lunches our estancia (Peuma Hue)had prepared for us. He has a clean and comfortable...

The view of "garganta del diablo" worths the trip. The problem is the bad route and the guards on National Park. If they notice that you foregneirs, they charge you 3 times more the entrance than locals. I recommend the trip using the travel agencies packages from Bariloche, even if you have a good out of road car, in such... More

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.
