We did this on what seemed to be a fair day down in Barilcohe however once up on the top it was blustery and we walked around for only 30 minutes , great views , very average coffee shop , lots of tourists so we waired in line for 20 minutes going up 40 to come down , 230 pesos... More

This is an easy trip from downtown Bariloche, you can go there and back in a couple hours and see everything there is to see. You go up in a gondola-type cable car to the top of the mountain, where here is a building with a restaurant, souvenir shops etc. There is also a museum with reproductions of Michelangelo statues...

We visited this wonderful ski hill during the off-season to take in the gorgeous views. You can take the cable car to the "lodge" (which has a nice restaurant at the top, shops and wifi), or you can hike up there... we chose the cable car. From there, you can take a brief hike even further up the mountain, where... More

The view is great besides the strong and cold winter wind, worth to go outside in the decks for appreciating the beautiful view, unfortunately the park area was closed due the lack of snow, but seems to be funny mainly for the kids. The cafe was disappointing, cold and old "churros" and the coffee and capuchino were not good also.

To reach Cerro Otto you have to travel in a somewhat dated cable car taking 4 in each cab. However no worries regarding safety. At the summit, there are marvellous views of Bariloche, Lago Nahuel Huapi as well as the lower summits of the Andes. The restaurant at the top is not somewhere at which to expect a gourmet experience... More

The walk will take you about 45 mins, you can get to a refuge called Berghof, from there you can take a short hike, there are lots of paths.

Cerro Otto is definitely worth a visit. The view of the city and the lakes surrounding it is amazing. It is quite far from downtown, however there is a shuttle that takes you back and forth from Centro Civico every 30 minutes, the shuttle is complimentary, you only need to pay the admission. Really recommended.

Was okay, some delay of the transportation. But nice view. But do not anything in your car, not even in your trunk. Bariloche is full of robbers.
