We had a great time doing Circuito Chico. It's very accessible, you hop on a city bus (you can use your Sube card from Buenos Aires) and get off at a station about 300 meters away from a bike rental place. The bike rental is easy and affordable, and then off you go on the circuito! It is hilly and... More

We made the tour by our own car. The whole way is nice and pleasant. A bit difficult to get a couple of coffee at Lhao Lhao hotel though. They don't like visitors that are not guests. After the coffee, we went to the Swiss colonia - very small and pretty village. We bought some gifts there. Then, we had... More

The journey starts in Bariloche, a large tourist city in Patagonia, bordering Lake Nahuel Huapi. Along the route you cross Playa Bonita at km 8 and at km 10 is the foot of Campanario Hill, where there is a chairlift that takes the traveler to the summit 1,050 meters high. From there you can see one of the most beautiful... More

We hired a couple of mountain bikes to cycle the circuito chico. It was an incredible experience and was quite hilly the entire day - up and down the whole time. I would say it takes a moderate level of fitness and knowledge of how to use the gears on a bike to be able to complete the circuit. It... More

We rented bikes to do the 27km tour and loved it. It's all uphill and downhill but so worth it. The views are amazing, you can swim or kayak in the lake, hike, or chill on the beach, ... You're exhausted at the end of the day but so happy!

I'm biased, being from here, but if you're visiting Bariloche, this one isn't to be missed. Best done in your own car, or a rental, as there are many places you'll want to stop. In spring and summer you'll see myriad explosions of the yellow flowers of the Retama. In autumn, the leaves unleash their carnival of red, orange, ochre,... More

This was top 3 in South America for me. The other two being Death Road and Banos, Equador. Very beautiful - every corner there is another gorgeous view...gets better and better with a few great stops along the way - including the Llao Lloa hotel and restaurant and a few great spots to grab a bebida for a rest.
