Great outdoor views and nice to walk in such beautiful areas. Air was so clean and clear. You can see clearly for miles upon miles.

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.

Cerro Tronador is one of the tours you cannot miss. Is expensive but worth it! There are so many breathtaking landscapes to admire and enjoy.

Looking through the activities in Bariloche, I came across the black glacier at Tronador and thought I would like to see it since I had no time to head further south to El Calafate. Guided tours came in around the 400 peso mark including transport and entry fees (65 pesos at the time of writing) but I was lucky enough... More

El Tronador is a dormant volcano with glacial ice that cracks and thunders, hence the name. At its base is the "black" ice of the Manso glacier, which has receded dramatically since the 1940s due to global warming. We chose to drive here from Bariloche, and after seeing the endless white tour vans do the obligatory quick stops I'm glad... More

The long drive to the Tronador is well worth it. Not only do you see the Manso glacier, and what it evolves into, the Ventisquero Negro (Black Glacier), but the Mountain itself is awe inspiring. Easy trek to Las Nalcas fall. Many horseriding and trekking trails start here, with all levels of difficulty.

The drive to Cerro Tronador is truly amazing. We trvelled therein December and the flowers and the scenery made it an amazing day. The glacier itself is spectacular, but I would advise that you spend heaps fo time merely getting there. The Photo opportunities are innumerable
