  • Through incredible places before reaching mount Tronador. We had good weather and we could see it in all its glory. It imposes its snowy peaks! It is worth going to meet his Majesty. It can be in your own vehicle while respecting the hours of ascent and descent.

  • Excellent hiking, is the obligatory passing by Bariloche! I had a super guide informed and very cool. Do it! It is an excursion that lasts all day, the journey to the base of Mount Tronador is approximately 2 hours to the ida and 2 pm around the corner, along the way you'll stopping for different places that are beautiful and you're internalized in the history of the Nahuel Huapi National Park. Listen to Thunder to the Tronador is the most! If they are lucky, you may see a condor flying out there. It is recommended go before winter because they are roads that cost more to cross by snow, but the experience one has to live it.
