Scale Cerro Lopez to discover a mountainous landscape covered in alpine forest.

You'll find a mountain hut located at 1,620 m (5,315 m), which can be reached by taking a 2-3 hour hike. From the hut, another hour's hike will get you to the summit--keep in mind that some routes require advanced skills, top fitness, and professional gear.

  • We went to do the trekking to the first Parador (Roca Negra). It is part of the Lopez stream with a 60-75-minute forest climb. The ascent is about 400 MTS so it has a little requirement. However we did with children of 9/12 years without problems. The views are spectacular, of the best I have seen. The Parador was closed for repairs but has an excellent view.

  • The hike to the refuge is quite intense on the rise (about 2 1/2 HS to 3 hours) nice views towards Lago Moreno and Nahuel Huapi. Possibility to climb to the top (tourist peak) and visit the snow in La Hoya even in summer (although it requires climbing stones with hand support)

  • Very good the climb although more demanding than we expected. My wife and children (13 and 11) cost them a little (tiredness, not difficulty) the last part. It took 2.05 to go up and 1.50 to get off. The view above is amazing. The climb is well marked although the descent not so much (we had to go back and pick up sometime). I recommend taking OFF for the horseflies that in parts of the way bothered a bit. A very nice experience to do as a family.
