A quick hike up a full dirt track road, so you get passed by lots of cars, trucks etc. The views are good, but the next day we did Cerro Campanario, and then Llao Llao, which are, in our view, better.

The Condors are if you're lucky, the rest is all great, the fantastic views, the trip on the ski lift. All very nice in reasonable weather conditions

The cerro Otto is 1400 mts.(around 4500 ft) high. We travel in a confortable cable car.(Telesférico) in a 12 minutes trip to the top. There you have a nice 360° view of Bariloche and surroundings, with the spectacular lake Nahuel Huapi. A rotating cafetería permits you to admire this view while drinking hot chocolate with "medialunas"(croissants). Close to this is... More

We followed the line of the cable car up Cerro Otto this morning on foot. Challenging in parts if climbing straight as ground very loose and dusty but a great experience though and views over Lago Nahuel Huapi and beyond are breathtaking. Bring plenty of water and if fit, lunch for the top as they charge you 90pesos pp to... More

The views from the top of Cerro Otto are amazing. The place is very close to the city, you can reach it in 15 minutes. We went to Cerro Otto during the summer and there are a few short trails available if you want to go outdoors. If not, you can stay at Confiteria giratoria and appreciate the views from... More

We loved the views from the top but there is nothing else to do. I would not recommend going unless you have lots of spare time on your hands. We went as the Hotel receptionist suggested it.

Beautiful views above Bariloche. Easy to get away from crowds by taking hike to Piedra de los Hapsburgos. Also can hike up under cable car.

Having just booked another two days in Bariloche, I wanted to do a more local hike so I decided on Cerro Otto. I was told that there was a trail under the cable cars that goes directly up rather than the winding, longer route the cars take (at kilometer 1 on Avenida de Los Pioneros), which a few people had...

One of the benefits of driving, biking or hiking the very rough unpaved road to the top of Cerro Otto is the ability to stop and enjoy the various vistas. Of course, when you reach the summit the panorama over Bariloche, the lake and to the south is awesome. However, if you drive you must park about 5 minutes from... More
