  • The trip to the Tronador is an adventure. It is recommended to travel in vehicles with four wheel drive. The last section, which is done on foot, is not suitable for travellers with reduced mobility. Standing next to the huge vertical wall of the Tronador is impressive. The waterfalls that fall from the top, the roar of the River, everything is wonderful.

  • Mount Tronador is to enjoy more than one sense... It is to admire it from afar and from the base. The colors are unique. The sound is riveting, and if one feels able to climb will be a unique experience.
