Lovely views of the lake and surrounding area
Feb 2020
We took the cable car up to the top of Cerro Otto. It was too windy to hike farther up, and in fact by the time we wanted to come down they had closed the cable car due to wind. That caused some confusion as it turned out we were supposed to get our names on a list to get on a bus. In the end we had to wait a couple of hours, so we had lunch in the revolving restaurant. The food was good and the service excellent. So we had a good time there.

Buy your tickets from the bureau on San Martin ave and enjoy a bus journey from there in the middle of Bariloche to the cable car and a return journey included. Excellent value trip especially for over 65s .!!Amazing 360 degree views from the top of Cerro Otto.

Running upto Cerro Otto
Feb 2020 • Couples
Ok so a different type of review. My wife and I ran up to and back down from Cerro Otto this morning. It is 16k from town and took just over 3 hours. It is very runnable with no real steep parts (600 m elevation gain). As you leave town going towards the cable car station you will see a road on the left to “Piedras Blancas”. Take that and keep going. Incredible views of the lake all the way up. Of course you don’t have to run. You can walk !

Wonderful way to spend a few hours!

We really enjoyed taking the gondola up to the top of the mountain- it is further than it looks from below! The views from the top are spectacular and there are hiking trails for those who want to explore further, which we did and enjoyed. But the best thing is the 360 degree revolving restaurant that very slowly revolves as you sit at your table so that you can enjoy the views in all directions. We've never seen anything like that! We recommend getting there by 9:30 and you'll be able to walk right in with no lines and the wind is calmer in the morning.

Great day

We went up Cerro Otto by teleferico, cable car but walked down after a good coffee and tostada in the restaurant. The restaurant rotates! Absolutely wonderful walk down though it’s about 5 miles.
But worth it. Brings you into the middle of Bariloche.
Highly recommended on a good day of summer 👍

Year Round access to lots of outdoor activities.

Take the cable car to the top & it opens the door to tons of activities - hiking/biking during the summer - all the winter sports during snow season. The many cabins dotted throughout the area give you a place to warm up or just sit & relax. Incredible views in all directions.

Nice resto on top
Jan 2020 • Couples
You can go up walking, by car or gondola. I don't know if there are other trails up but I saw people walking on the road which isn't a nice walk at all. The gondola costs 900 pesos and includes the entrance to the complex on the top. If it's windy they stop the gondola. If you go by car there is a small parking lot at the entrance. Only the entrance costs 600 pesos (making the gondola 300 pesos). I don't think it's worth walking up because you have to pay the entrance fee anyway to access the view points and the rotating restaurant. The restaurant is lovely, not very expensive. We had some craft beer and some lovely local cheese and cold cuts.

Great day trip
Dec 2019 • Family
We took the gondola up to Cerro Otto and were positively surprised. There are a few walks up on top, we saw a few condors cruising past and had an awesome view from various lookouts. Also recommend to get some food in the restaurant to enjoy the 360 views.

Great hike, amazing views
Dec 2019 • Couples
We hiked to the top via the walking trail, taking around 90 minutes. It’s a steep hike with tricky dry ground - especially at the top which is very steep, so good hiking shoes are recommended.

The 360 degree views at the top are amazing. Great feelings after the tricky hike up.

We opted to pay for the entrance to the cafe at the top which served nice food and drinks. It also included the cable car back down and a bus ride back to centre of town. We wouldn’t recommend walking down as it’s too dangerous and steep. (Note: If you don’t want to hike you can get the cable car up included in the same ticket).
