Cascada de los Duendes, San Carlos de Bariloche

Walk through a charming lakeside forest to reach Cascada de los Duendes. The hidden waterfall, accessible by a fairly easy walking trail, offers a pleasant atmosphere. Perhaps more impressive, however, is the view you'll enjoy from the highest point along the path to the waterfall, where you'll be able to see out over Lago Gutiérrez and its surrounds. Bring plenty of water, snacks, and sun protection, as the trip takes at least a couple of hours.

  • The path out of a guard post parks on the shore of Lake Gutierrez, is neither long nor steep and after a couple of kilometres you reach the cascade, which is surrounded by forest. It is a nice walk of approx. 1 hour.

  • To get to the waterfall of the elves, we take line 50 bus and arrived at Villa Los Coihues. The collective for at the entrance, there is still walking about 15 minutes to get to the beginning of the Park. The trail short and simple is that leads to the waterfall of the Elves. There is another trail of longer duration, and another much longer that it goes to the refuge (that carries throughout the day: half day to get up and half a day to lower). I just went to the waterfall of the Elves. Along the way there are explanatory posters on the flora and fauna of the place. Much silence and peace, and small creeks to reach the two cascaditas. Flat, accessible path to go with children, lasts a half-hour trip, and another half turn. Also the place is close to the Lake, so that if one goes with time, also will be in the Pebble Beach.

  • We arrived with the car to a parking lot and then 10 minutes walk with signs to not deviate. . What I loved was nature and pure air that is could breathe while we performed hiking, the trail quiet and without difficulty, we went with the baby for 2 years and it had no problem walking out there. The beautiful waterfall as most of the landscapes of Bariloche. Recommended to enjoy the pure nature.

  • Nice easy walk by the lake and in the wood, and a lovely, not amazing, cascade. If you have 3-4 hours (including the time to get there) and want to spend them pleasantly - it might be a good idea. Get there by bus (forgot the number... Fifty something...)
  • Lovely cascade, it's small and nothing very impressive but it's near to some amazing trekking trails.
  • Nice place where you can appreciate the clean air, the falls and if you are lucky,see some interesting animals .
  • Bellisimo
  • Beautiful ride for the whole family. It is a walk of a length of 400 meters is going where appreciating nature and still as fallen trees continue to contribute to the equilibrium of the environment. The level of demand is low, so you can go with children. It also has a separate bicycle transit path. The end of the tour is crowned with a beautiful waterfall, excellent for shooting. Highly recommended!
