If you walk up there, be prepared for a boring hike on the street. If you want to go to the platform (from only where you can the the landscape skyline) you have to pay 220$ to take a mountain train for the last 50 vertical meters. This ticket includes the way back down by the aerosilla. Nice view up... More

There's a free bus from the civic center to the cable car's station and back, leaves hourly at 15 past IIRC (part of the ticket). The views are very nice and there's a rotating restaurant on top with bad but pricy food. Just order something small and enjoy the views. You can hang around outside - the restaurant isn't mandatory... More

You are up about 1400 meters and we had fresh snow overnight and the view of the town and mountains was okay. The ride up on the cable car was good and the revolving restaurant was nice to have a coffee and some snacks and get a 360 degree view.

We hiked all the way up from the city centre just to discover that for the last 200m you are requested to pay 280ARS to get to the top. The ticket includes: - unnecessary funicular to the top (100m hike) - unnecessary Teleferico ticket to get down since we wanted to hike back - entrance to the bar - bus... More

One of the most beautiful views of Bariloche. There are a lot of viewpoints linked by walk sides. Ideal for trekking beginners. The restaurant on the top is a must!!

Cerro otto had a beautiful view, but after we had been to Cerro Caterdal we realised the view at cerro otto wasn't quite the same.. If you're planning on going to Caterdal don't bother with Visiting here. The restaurant is rather overpriced. View is nice though.

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 ride in teleférico is really nice, feels safer than aerosillas (specially with kids) and the view is amazing. The Confitería Giratoria is nice, the food is average but the view is amazing. 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.
