Cavernas del Viejo Volcan Parque Cerro Leones, San Carlos de Bariloche

(4.4/5 based on 280+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Find an activity sports, educational and social, the ascent to the hill with a low difficulty but not simple, a narrative of the discoveries of the Perito Moreno and the way of life of the Tehuelche in these caverns, a fun atmosphere, the charism of our Miguel guide product. Recommended.

  • a different experience to the others that we had, and beautiful! We got to mountain lions (in the city of Dina Huapi, which told us that was formerly considered an extension, a neighborhood of Bariloche, but now so you grew up is considered a city apart), on bus line 33, (eye!, this is not card goes up, we had to buy the card "the caves" and load it to have passages of roundtrip) (, les report of all modes in the same local of Cerro Lions of the Centre of Bariloche, in the street Urquiza 276, very near of the Centre civic). After approx. 50 min journey, arrived at the complex Hill lions, a beautiful place! and enjoy the surroundings of the confectionery up to in a van took us to a sector of the hill from where we started the walk to the different caves. It was spectacular! the road, all the explanation, the paintings cave small and wonderful, and the passage to the cave!. highly recommended! We had already seen on Tripadvisor site but it had not contartado online previously. The same day of the ride, went early to the office of the Center and coordinate the time of the ride.

  • Lead us with a combi to the base, walk is done with a guide, has a little more difficult than other parts, but nothing impossible to perform, is made by small sections where we stopped and the Guide explained us very well throughout history. The three caves that are visited are incredible. Some cave paintings can be seen.
