Cascada de los Duendes, San Carlos de Bariloche

3.9
#8 of 12 in Nature in 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 entire environment to the Gutierrez Lake Road and the Hill of viewpoint is very nice. All. And along the way is the waterfall of el Duende. A fell water londa on a very magical forest aue you recharge of natural energies with the water, land, trees and birds.

  • The place is very cute: a major waterfall, the forest around, only nature sounds. The trail is fully signposted and is of low difficulty, making it a super ride is suitable for families with small children or elderly people. Other paths towards different viewpoints or beaches can be within the same Park, but the difficulty of these is rather more high

Where to stay in San Carlos de Bariloche

Despite an abundance of economical lodgings, most budget-friendly options in Bariloche get fully booked well before the start of peak season. Hotels charge the highest rates during popular ski months (July and August), when you're least likely to find a cozy room without a reservation. Mid-range hotels near the town center remain the best option for most tourists, offering car rental and tour arrangements along with the usual amenities like free Wi-Fi, cable TV, and laundry service.
