We traveled to Bariloche fromBuenos Aires. We had to plan a rather remote trip based on that our daughter is an exchange student in a remote part of Patagonnia and our trip was to visit her. We found little info on the internet which is why I'm posting this. DO NOT DRIVE ACROSS ARGENTINA! We did this and the roads are very dangerous 2 lanes and people passing within 10 seconds of hitting the on coming car at 100 mile per hour! My daughter knows of 3 families in her small town that lost a member due to an accident. In Addition there are no gas stations, after 8 hours of driving you get to a state run gas station w/ no food or water but thankfully we got gas before we ran out. The scenery for 12 hours resembled New Mexico absolutely nothing to look at. As you head further into Patagonia the road turns to dirt, rocks and dust galore. Bariloche is gorgeous but very touristy like the small towns outside of grand canyon or Estes park. If you must travel to this area I would head 3 hours farther to San Martin which has a less touristy feel, and the same beauty. Or if you are going out of your way skip this area all together. It's just too touristy and you can get a lot of similar offerings in the US .
