  • A mandatory route, we do it with a Zig Zag company, with the Guide Juan Carlos, and I give to both for the seriousness, punctuality and commitment to us tourists. Lake Nahuel Huapi, the Llao Llao Hotel, views, ascent to Cerro Campanario, anyway... Not to be missed. Don't miss it!

  • A short ride as the name says. A bit expensive too. But it's worth getting to know. On the way make a stop to climb the cerro Campanario. The part cost.

Best things to do in San Carlos de Bariloche

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.
