We wandered over here begrudgingly on our last day in Argentina. I had some weird aversion to going since everyone said it was the thing to do in Bariloche. But it was super cool. We did a little hike to a nearby peak (like half a mile). It was good to work off the hot chocolate and croissants I scarfed... More

No lines. Cable car up and down was litke a sauna. Glass was somewhat distorted/scratched so not terribly good for taking pictures. Views were very good. Hiking available to upland forest. Disco and rotating restaurant up top. After trip down, ice cream spot just behind the parking lot.

We hiked to the top of Cerro Otto by taking the very straight up route right beneath the lift. It is very, very sandy and washed out. We are two very active and fit individuals in our late twenties, and we hike and trek a lot (we hiked for 15 days to Everest Base Camp in November). For us, it... More

Nice ride to the top on the cable car and then a lovely walk through quiet woods to the view point at Habsbuerga

Just do it for the views,the restaurant at the top and shops are too touristy. Easy to find on the road out of Bariloche towards the circuitous Chico.

This site is amazing. The revolving cafeteria is a good place to have a pastry and chocolate and see the 360 degree view for miles around. The difficulty is in getting a clear enough day.

Highly recommend this trip. About an hour and worth the trip for the amazing views. The chairlift is also fun and costs about $120 pesos two way. Heard you can climb it too for free but is pretty steep and will take you about 30 to 45 minutes

We took the cable car up to the top of Cerro Otto, and it was a worthwhile visit. We enjoyed the scenic views of Bariloche and the natural areas. The cost was 160 pesos per person. There was also a small art gallery in the visitors center with replica Italian art. All in all, a nice spot for a visit.

The bus takes you from the Independencia park in town. The views are spectacular. Visit the revolving restaurant - its worth it for the view
