  • Everything in Bariloche is beautiful ... Cerro Tronador is the highest mountain of the surroundings of Bariloche. It has the famous tronador volcano ... the route is beautiful, we got through the Lakes Gutierrez and Mascardi Went into a period of very cold, bundle up well and in this period it is not possible to make tracks, if you like, due to snow and etc. The site has strong noises, sounding like thunder, but are layers of ice shedding. We can see some falling, very beautiful.

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.
