Catch bus 20 from the center and go to cerro campanario. It only takes half a day to do the whole visif and the views are spectacular! After takimg lots of photos, we went to the cosy alpine cafe and had coffee and chocolate cake at a very reasonable price. Everything was perfect and made our stay in Bariloche worth it even in late autumn. A definite must!
The subida and bajada on the chairlifts cost 60 pesos (for both).

Rated one of the Top Ten views of the world. If you have olnly one day in Bariloche, go to Cerro Campanario without hesitation. Breathtaking views, comfortable places to seat, good and cheap chocolate or tea. A MUST!

This is a great lookout point. Take bus 20 from downtown bariloche and ask the driver to tell you when he reaches Cerro Campanario, it takes about 25-30min. There is a path to hike up (45minutes) or take the chairlift (60pesos) that takes you to the top in about 10minutes. Don't forget to look behind you as you go up, the views are amazing!! at the top you can walk around to different lookout points and there is a cute alpine style cafe with views, too.
It's a great activity to do if you only have 1/2 day to spend.

tip about bus tickets in Bariloche: I found this very badly organized, the only place a tourist can buy bus tickets is called 3 Mayo (Micro Omnibus), the transportation office on Moreno street. Other places apparently sell rechargeable cards for I think 30 pesos and you need to recharge them. I could not find out where.
The only postbox in town (took me a while to find that) is at Correo argentino, one street above Mitre on Moreno street (Mitre is the main street).

We caught the No 20 bus to Cerro Campanario. There is a chair lift to the top but we chose to walk the 1km - about 400m upwards - it is fairly steep in parts and so took us about 30 minutes - we took the easy way down by the chairlift.

Once at the top we were rewarded with this amazing view. It is a wow factor with a 360o view right across the lakes and mountains and over to Bariloche - it was magnificent. It was very blowy when we were there so you may need a warm jacket.

There is a little cafe there to get a drink or have a snack so we sat and gazed out at the view. We were blessed with a fine clear day.

If you are in Bariloche you really must visit.

You can hike up to the top and avoid the cost of the gondola. The trail starts to the right of the parking lot (just ask at the ticket booth and they'll point it out). Great hike, and if you're tired at the end you can ride the gondola down for free. Try to go first thing in the morning before the tour groups arrive.
