Outdoor Activity
Scale Cerro Lopez to discover a mountainous landscape covered in alpine forest. The mountain peaks at 2,188 m (7,178 ft), and its base can be reached from the center of town using public transportation. 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. Extensive views of snowcapped peaks and deep valleys await at the summit.

Best things to do in San Carlos de Bariloche

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.
