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.

    Ideal to go with small children. Only get, being 5 ' and leave. In season, there are enough people. A nice preview of what are the trails of the Park.

    The National Park where is the cascade is a little far from the city, it is necessary to drive. Once there, the hike to the waterfall is short and can be made without difficulty. The deal is beautiful and a good choice for a picnic.

    Excellent to do a walk through the forest, without any danger for children. You can arrive by bus and then walk (but no slope, on flat terrain)

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.
