The views are absolutely spectacular! It's a must! You have to go on a nice sunny day for the best view. The small resto at the top is not expensive nor crowded, we had some nice beer and tartas overlooking the lakes a bit longer. The bus number 20 takes takes you from the centre and leaves you at the chairlift. The bus costs 35 pesos, you need the SUBE card.

I was in a dormitory of a hostel in Pucon, Chile. A guy crossed the border from Argentina was talking about Bariloche and how beautiful it was. I was like, hum, never heard of it, this guy must haven’t traveled much to see amazing places, then, I was in the kitchen, a couple was talking about Bariloche and said it was so beautiful like Switzerland, but nicer, I was like, hum, that’s quite a comparison, really? After I went across the border to Argentina, I went to see Bariloche for myself. The town was by a big lake, nice, but not a big deal, but when I went up to this view point suggested by the park office, oh, my gosh, it was like in the Lord of the Rings, and I was wondering, why LOTR didn’t shoot there? That was after seeing the Sugar Loaf bay from Corcovado, Rio, which was one of the 7 Natural Wonders of the World, which I had considered as my favorite view point after years of going around the planet, but looking at those mountains and lakes at Campanario, I was thinking if I should put Sugar Loaf the second and got a little “pissed”, why isn’t this place more famous!

There is regular city bus from town that goes along the lake can drop you there, It’s not far from town, then you can take a cable car up to the view point. I think some people mentioned hiking also. I’m not a hiker, so it was wonderful being able to visit there with ease. The view point is 360. There is a cafe, some outdoor chairs are free. I guess what made it stand out was that castle like mountain in the distance, along with other mountains and pieces of lakes, added a touch of Medieval, surreal feel to it. Definitely should be put on any list of top 10 most beautiful places on Earth. There are other points of interest along the lake also, it’s the same direction of the port for boat tours, you can plan a day trip or just go up there and been taken away.

We were lucky to have a gorgeous wind free day to take the chair lift to the top of the mountain for views of Lago Nahuel Huapi - the huge lake that Bariloche that makes this area so spectacular. This is not a sky lift, it is strictly to get to the top of the mountain for the views (or hiking). This is definitely a don't miss when you come to Bariloche. Make sure to be prepared for the professional photographer that snaps a shot of every chair as you reach the top. It is very inexpensive & definitely worth it! Also - take a moment to at least walk in the gift store/cafe for the views from inside. Lovely place to take a moment & have a cup of coffee!

Great views from top of the chairlift of the surrounding lakes. Definitely worth the 500 Argentinian pesos. This attraction was included as part of the standard "cerro chico" tour with those who wanted to take the chairlift paying extra and those who did not staying down below. Real touristy but worth it.

A bit crowded but worth the pesos to ride the lift up. Gorgeous panoramic views. My only question is: had anyone else paid 1000 pesos to a person taking pictures, at request, and handed a little card from bariolochefotogringo with a website and a foto number? I did, and have not seen the foto shown on the digital camera used...and no response from multiple emails. Was I scammed?

This is a must see tour. The view at the top of the mountain is superb. You didn't go to San Carlos de Bariloche if you didn't stop in Cerro Campanario.

They have an small cafeteria at the top and areas to walk around. Bring your jacket, we were in summer time and it was a little cold.

To understand a little bit of the magnitude of Bariloche, you have to take this lift. We payed 4000 pesos for the two of us. It was worth every penny, well peso. Even though we had some rain, the view was still incredible. Make sure to take the time. There is a tiny restaurant, where you can also enjoy the view. Going up and down is just incredible. Just enjoy the ride…

My husband and I agree that this was one of the most breathtaking spots we visited during our time in Bariloche!! Definitely worth it. The lift was fun to take up and the views once there were amazing. Don't bank on the best lunch when you get up to the top - the empanadas were just simply not good comparatively BUT they have plenty of coffee, beer, wine, soft drinks and water as well as delicious looking desserts. Such a beautiful spot!

Taking the chair lift up the mountain for a spectacular views of the lakes around Bariloche was magnificent. There are many places to explore with different points of view. This is a must if you visit this area of Argentina.

We took the chairlift to the top of Cerro Campanario (Bell Tower) for stunning views of the surrounding lakes and mountains of the Parque Nacional Nahuel Huapi. Truly breathtaking views in every direction. This is a must -- don't miss it!
