Took a bus tour, made several stops on the way to the mountain. Ultimately traveled to an overlook of the black glacier. We were fortunate that we had a clear day for the trip. Would not be as impressive on a very cloudy day.

It's a long and a bit tiring dirt road but you'll be rewarded with great views of Ventisquero Negro glacier and Cerro Tronador. It's also possible to get to Alerces Waterfall, in a small but beautiful and shaded forest.

We took the day with our family (children aged 9-11). It takes forever to get there and the roads are rough. As soon as you detour from the main road, you encounter the park ranger's station. You have to pay to enter the national park and the prices vary if you are argentine or foreigner. Very soon you get to... More

This is the highest peak near Bariloche. You need to take a bus or go with a car since it is some km away from the city. You have many different options to enjoy nature

Takes about 6 hours if traveling in a group of moderate experienced hikers. Beautiful views the entire way. Stayed at the Refugio ( shelter) with about 80 people. They just throw mattresses on the floor and you put your sleeping bag on top. Very comfortable and warm. The dinner was great and a good value at 300 pesos. Very worth... More

End result, we had a brilliant tour with Ricardo. The only 2 english speakers on the tour, Ricardo did a great job of keeping us informed of... More

This hike is well worth the 2 hour drive out and the bit of preparation to make it happen. It's around 18km up the mountain, takes around 5-6 hours of good hiking. It's not technical at all, but has a few steep places here and there. It's not busy at all, and you ascend in the trees in a gorge,... More

Long way to arrive and due to nerrow road leaving the area is enabled only after 4pm. The way to the mountain seems like most beautiful roads in the area. The ice is decreasing quickly and nothing special to see since the black iceberg is very small. If you have other things to do i even recommend to stay in... More
