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

Yes, it is touristy, but we had never been on cable cars or in a revolving restaurant so we embraced the trip. Beautiful views plus we got to watch hang gliders taking off below us.

Excellent gift given by nature to us. If you are in a number of more than 3 (we were 4), the best is to go there by your own car. It´s going to cost you less than half of what the vans charge you. The service by van cost around 700 per person and the car alone costs 700 a... More

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
