I mostly recommend a visit to Cerro Otto. It is a must see attraction! The view is incredible! There is a restaurant at the top. Beware! The service is bad and the food is not good at all! I ordered Goulash and a plate of smoked venison (check the picture). The venison was good but it cost near 200 pesos... More

The rest of the services up there are not very impressive and expensive for the most part. We spent around 2.500 pesos for a lunch and the... More

I would take the trip up to the Cerro Otto during Summer, Autumn or Spring. During Spring and Autumn you will see the trees changing colors wild life everywhere and the view is amazing! During Summer is hot but I love the view and the majestic contrast of the forests against the borders of the lakes. I do not sky... More

Cerro Otto can be reached through a short gondola ride, or a long, uphill hike. I recommend the hike up and down because of how beautiful the foliage is. Its a tough one though so make sure to bring lots of water. The trail isn't super clearly marked so be sure to do your research beforehand.

We were lucky to have three beautiful Fall days hiking around Bariloche. The red and yellow colors were dramatic. The views from this location are remarkable. An easy hike for extraordinary views.

We hiked up to the Cerro, about 45min ( I went kind of slow) and the view up there was worth the steep hike. Really fantastic.

You can get a ticket to Cerro Otto in a kiosk at Mitre, a bus takes you to the ferry and once up you can enjoy a beautiful panorama of Bariloche. It's worth doing.

If you want to go for a perfect landscape, this is the place to enjoy in company of your family and a cofee or a beer. You can take a walk arround, have a nice picture to remember your trip.
