Explore Cavernas del Viejo Volcan Parque Cerro Leones, three caverns inside an old volcano. The caverns are at an altitude of about 900 m (3,000 ft) and are reachable by a steep walkway. Once supposedly inhabited by the Tehuelche civilization, two of the caves are relatively easily accessed on foot. The third requires crouching through a narrow path that leads to a lagoon with a pool of fresh water. Climb just 87 m (285 ft) more to get to the top of the volcano and enjoy panoramic views of the surroundings.

  • Excellent visit. An unexpected place. It's worth the time. The guide knows a lot and transmits everything with passion, mystery and comedy. You can reach the site on your own. In auto or in collective number 30. (You must schedule.) The place has guided tour (11 am and 3 pm). You only enter with guide. It's worth the time. Sale 395 pesos entrance adult. Ideal to go with guys. Very interesting.

  • It can be accessed easily by car or hire an excursion in the heart of Bariloche. Perhaps the attraction cost is a bit high

  • It is a good choice to ski, because it is unusual, something different to enjoy. Good buy entering the cave.

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.
