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.

Drove to the top and it cost more to ride the tram to the rest. than taking the cable car from the base. Great view mediocre food and very expensive.

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.

Last month while in Bariloche, we took the Teleferico Cerro Otto (aerial tramway) for beautiful views of Lake Nahuel Huapi, surrounding mountains, and the small islands. Cost was $260 ARS per person and well worth it for the views. Inside, they had a Michelangelo display of his art and replica statues, and a 360 degree revolving restaurant. It is well... More
