If you want to spend a few days trekking through mountains, enjoying lakes and spending nights at bungalows at the top of the mountains, this is a unique experience you could hold. We hike around 100 km from Catedral, center bariloche up to Tronador, the boundary with Chile

Did a tour around Bariloche and one of the stops was the Cerro Tronador where it was optional to go and look. Paid, the admission to get on the chair lift and ascended to the top of the mountain. The views were phenomenal, surrounded by the Nahuel Huapi lake and many more. We were allowed to be there 15 mins... More

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
