You can do it
May 2021 • Family
The trail is so steepe, you will have to look straight up, skywards, to even see the top of some cliffs. But you can do it. Even with kids, we tell you. If you are fitter, better.

Hiking and climbing in Frey
Feb 2020
Refugio Frey is a perfect destination for a hike from Bariloche. You can do it as a day hike if you are fit, but it's a really nice place to stay for the night. The vibe in the refuge is really nice, they offer delicious home-made meals, or you can use the kitchen and cook yourself. What I liked the most was the wooden deck by the lakeside, and the amazing and endless trad climbing possibilities in the granite spires that surround the valley.

Hiking to Frey Hut through Catedral Ridge - awesome!!
Jan 2020
Spending two weeks hiking in northern Patagonia, this was my favorite of all hikes. It is an all-day adventure so plan accordingly. There are two ways to do this hike: we started with the ski lift up from Bariloche, then hiked Catedral Ridge, then went down to the Frey Hut, and then a solid descent to the shores of Lake Gutierrez. I loved climbing over and around the boulders while on Catedral Ridge but you shouldn't do Catedral Ridge if you are scared of heights or subject to vertigo. The view was the most spectacular that I've seen. Then the scenery changed while hiking the valley to Frey Hut - lush green vs barren stones. The descent past Frey Hut was all wooded and shady so yet another type of scenery, and some relief from the afternoon sun. We ate our picnic lunch at a small lake as we hiked down Catedral Ridge towards the valley. We were able to refill our water bottles and use the restrooms at Frey Hut, and I bought a cold Coke. We had a guide but I think it could potentially be doable without a guide if you have a good sense of direction and at least a field guide.

Hike to refugio frey via catedral trail
Feb 2020 • Couples
Great hike with cool lake at the end-- last mile is pretty vertical but doable-- other than that besides the distance of 12 + miles it is pretty easy--
2 very important points mi
First it was 80 pesos for the bus each way-- significantly more than the previous reviews i had read and i understand it changes often-- you have to use SUBE card for bus
Second-- the bus leaves from 2 different bis stops-- the following post was uber helpful for me so im passing it on
"The buses at 7:15, 9:15, 11:15, 13:15, 15:15, 17:15, and 19:15 depart from Avenida Bustillo, opposite the National Park administration building.
The buses at 8:15,10:15, 12:15, 14:15, 16:15, 18:15, and 20:15 depart from Avenida Pioneros, opposite bars Manush and Blest Cerveceria.
Hope this helps some one else as well

Perfect stay in Refugio frey
Feb 2020 • Couples
We were exhausted on arrival at the refugio, and were thrilled to find such a welcoming spot. Set beside a beautiful little lake where you can have a dip to cool off, followed by one of their really superior pizzas- they were also serving a hearty looking stew- and perfect night sleep in their large dorm, where everyone lines up in their sleeping bags ( they have some available there).
We were really glad we got a spot in the refugio, as the campsite looked really really uncomfortable- a rock bed on a steep enough slope

Great trek!
Jan 2020
The trek to Frey is one of the most popular.It's not very hard and very rewarding. The views are great and trail is well marked. If you're fit or start early, you can go and come back in the same day, sleeping in Bariloche if you wish.

Excellent day hike
Nov 2019 • Couples
We walked to Refugio Frey from the Cerro Catedral car park.

In total about 21km round trip. Took us about 3.5 hours up and similar down. Not a technical walk, but need to be in good shape as it’s uphill all the way. Tough enough to make it feel special when you got to the refugio.

The view from the top is incredible and there’s a lake (frozen over when we got there).

Our favourite walk in the Lake District around Bariloche.
