  • The last day in Bariloche, we decided to go to Cerro López. We start from the trail starts beside the Brook Lopez, which as I read previously in the Forum... the path is quite steep and tiring. It is estimated to rise from 3 p.m. time, we did it in 2. Midway is black rock, with a very nice hostel where you can drink. The refuge is very cute and cozy, we take a tea hardly we arrive to La Hoya and peak tourist. ATTENTION! These trekkings that depart from the refuge, since it's all rock and climbing... imagine the descent are not recommended if you suffer from vertigo. Also even though bites are marked, to be as vertical rise at times not currencies road. I arrived to the hoya and returned, because my partner stayed on the road because of this comment. Then we had lunch a rich steak in the refu and down at 1.30 pm approx. You have to be careful on the way down also, and go with good Footwear is essential.

  • 11kms walk half between parts of forests and other more open with incredible views that are sticking out of the Moreno Lake and Nahuel Huapi. When we realized we already could see the Refugio López, another incentive and when realized us already were there. Up to the refuge Lopez took 2h10´ and refuge the tourist peak 1h50´ with enough stops longer than the first section; This is much more steep, Rocky and considero(de mi punto de vista) much more difficult down the stretch. But as a recommendation if it is your first time on the mountain, this is the best option. If Yen just a day not recmiendo upload to the peak tourist, if you stay in the refu or carp, if do it!

  • all are going to go fast there... this Bay is tucked in the boy circuit... most for in car quickly... just stop a while for the picture. I invite you to walk from the base of the cerro López... until the Bay Bridge in that walk of 3 km (which is not very difficult to do) feel the scent of the pine forest and the singing of the birds... and then down to take some mates in its... beautiful beach!
