  • Ride lasting 8 to 9 hours. If you have ice on the runway cannot be done with simple car. There are several lakes and interesting landscape.

  • The landscapes are stunning, the black glacier is wonderful (even though toco I see it with nevada). It is an excursion without so much broadcast but not to be missed. I did it with turisur and guides were Ezequiel and Mario the driver, the two geniuses!

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.
