“Small caves-fantastic vistas”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2013 via mobile

This is an attraction about 25kms from Bariloche. It involves a short climb and a visit go several caverns which have been used for 8000 years as shelters for ancient man.

A guide is obligatory and we had a nice guide who was very knowledgeable about geology and the formations in and around Bariloche. It was very interesting and the caves had interesting rock formations...

The view from the top offered 360° view of the surrounding countryside... beautiful.

A restaurant is available for snacks at the end of the tour...which takes about 2.5 hours.

It was a nice alternative to cable cars to various mountain tops in the area.

“Cheap and interesting”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2012 via mobile

My boyfriend and I took the local bus to Cerro Leones. Once there the staff were friendly and the tour guide took us up to the caves. He spoke good english and was able to give us plenty of information regarding the history of the caves. The views were beautiful especially as you can climb to the top. Overall its deffinately a good low-budget excursion!
