Is a trip for the whole day, but the Troador is magnificent (it is the highest peak in the Patagonia and covered with snow all year long. You can also see a black glacier, small falls, etc. A must is to go to the "Los Alerces falls" which is a sort of a side trip to Tronador

Even though the ride up to the mountain is long and bumpy, it is worth it! We booked a day trip through zigzag tours and would highly recommend it. The views are beautiful and the tour guide was very knowledgeable.

This location is so close to downtown Bariloche and inexpensive to access and there are spectacular trails for every hiking level. You see the entire Lake District and Tronador (Thunder Sound?) which is a treat.

This is a long way from Bariloche, on a gravel and pot-holed road for a lot of the way. Unless you are staying at the park and hiking, it is not worth the effort for a day-trip. Many hours in the car, many tourist vans and buses, and a ridiculous system which appeared to have no purpose of only allowing... More

To see the this ice covered, notched out mountain up close is worth the five hour hike to Refugio Otto Meiling especially if you have crampons and an ice axe to walk around on the glacier.

Booked with local excursion reseller near the civic centre. The guide spoke only on Spanish and did not attempt to accommodate in English. It was difficult to keep up with the Spanish. I would recommend non-Spanish speaking to seek an English specific guide or drive yourself.

This is the western most limit with neighbouring country of Chile.Trail to mountain begins aprox 50 Kms distant to highway and take a long time to reach by earth road, but well worth it.

The glacier is quite an effort to get to (~1.5 hours driving down a winding gravel road with loads of potholes). The glacier itself is nice though not amazing. I don't think it justifies the effort to get there when there are so many other great things to do in barioloche. I will add that the park people were really... More

My wife and I visited here recently and decided rather than take a tour that we'd rent a car and enjoy exploring the area by ourselves. I'd recommend this as the driving is simple (even for being on the opposite side to N.Ireland) and its much easier to stop where you'd like and see the amazing views. It takes about... More

We spent whole day by bus, stopping in very nice spots. The Glaciars are amazing, I have never seen a black glaciar before. Gotta get luck to see the Ice fall.
