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.

  • We went on the recommendation of an acquaintance since not many agencies promote it, actually left us speechless, the boys enjoyed it to the fullest, the income to the last cavern almost repatando is so fun and see hidden Lake that is there inside leaves you with your mouth Open

  • Very good experience. After a short climb you reach the caverns of the title. Do not miss it. Very good Laura guide in its task. Very good hostel at the base of the Hill.

  • We love... very interesting excursion, the Guide Alejandro super attentive and nice ideal for these walks. It is a return of the long ago, how much history to know... I highly recommend it. Excellent! With respect to the price... It's not cheap but worth it!

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.
