some were in world
Dec 2019

I went here In August during there winter, and it was great, there was some snow in back in the town. But not much, here there was tons to play with. Also, the glacier was pretty, the lake was frozen and you can see the you are in the middle of the andes, and you can feel you are in a glacier. It was quite cold though at around -6:)

The experience worth the money and effort
Nov 2019
Do not expect an easy day... And plan your trip well... We made the trip with a rented cmall car and it was great. It is easy to drive to the park entrance but then the drive on the dirt road is demanding. And remember that the road is open for traffic in different directions at different times. The views are great. And do not limit tour visit to just the view point to the Tronador and Black Glacier but plan the waterfall also... Listen to the roar of cracking ice... Enjoy the views... Be prepared for strong and cold wind... Remember that the road from Pampa Linda is closed for traffic downwards until 4 p.m. And going on your own can be much better than going with a group...Then you can take your time and see everything at your own pace...

Absolutely stunning scenery- a Must See Area!!
Feb 2020
We took a bus from Bariloche up to pampa Linda and then hiked up to waterfalls over 300' high cascading off a Mt Tronador glacier called Castano Overa. It was spectacular the whole way going through a lovely old growth forest. The hike is relatively easy 9 miles round trip with maybe only 1000' of elevation gain. The lake and forest scenery during the bus ride was also very beautiful. We wished that we had planned to camp and spend more time in this area - there are several beautiful campgrounds along the lake shoreline.

Nice mountaing
Jan 2020
It's a beautiful mountaing that dominates the area close to Pampa Linda. Try to hear the ice breaking (it's name relates to that). You will find to spots to have a nice view of Tronador if you hike to Ilon and, from there, to Refugio Rocca. But it's not easy at all" Be prepared.

avoid the agency agency Turismo Bariloche power trip, Mitre 8
Dec 2019
They have a special/crook management for tourists: they put reduced price for an excursion and assure you that all is included but food. Then upon arrival to the place you learn that you need to pay an additional price, in cash, they do not accept credit cards, (neither in cafes). Don t trust them, better to book with any others but not with them. They are crooks.

Great experience
Dec 2019 • Friends
Took a tour with a minibus and guide for around 50 euro. Left at 9am returned 6pm. Stunning views of Lago Mascardi and Gutierrez, Cerro Tronador, Ventisquero Negro and various rivers, streams and cascades. Worth every penny. Must do if you’re in the Bariloche area. Trekking and camping also possible. Bring food and layered clothing as the weather can change quickly.

Pretty but not worth the drive
Dec 2019
Very neat to see this mountain but drive made it not as fun. Would probably pick something else to do over this option.

Thunder at the end of a rough but beautiful road
Nov 2019
First, make sure you plan out the trip due to the main part of the road only being opened one-way for several hours. We went up in a very small rental car but I sure wish I had my Suburban from back home. Road was rough but very good, but it rattled our bones in the cheap rental.
On the way up is several stops with beautiful lookouts. Just like the rest of the Bariloche area, there are great lakes with towering mountains all around. Near the top you'll come to Black Glacier which is worth the trip by itself. When there you can hear the reason for this mountain's name. As the glaciers fall off or the landslides come down, it sounds like thunder through the valley.
Keep going up the road and you come to a great little stop and restaurant. Just light items but they had french fries, chocolate cake and beer. Yep, that was our lunch. From their parking lot you walk up the path to the creek area from the glacier runoff. Keep going up the harder to climb path and it will lead you right to the side of the mountain and some great cliffs and numerous waterfalls. Have fun and remember, it's cold up there.

Sensational

Such a beautiful part of this totally amazing country. On every turn the scenery is spectacular and the views are inspiring. Certainly worthwhile taking the extra time to visit here and explore when you are in Bariloche. Well worth a leisurely visit.
