  • Each meter run of the circuit is a new and different landscape. I recommend taking the time needed to travel because the places give go stopping to appreciate the landscapes that are.

  • Very nice to do with car and on foot. We also saw many mountain bikers. You can the route by car in around 30 minutes ' drive away. You can then click on different places stop and stroll. We have a 4.5 hour made with different vantage points, including cerro llao llao, villa tacal beach and Lago escodindo. That is definitely a must! Only to cerro llao llao is on some pieces very steep walk up, but otherwise this walk.

  • We paid the visit in conjunction with the travel agency that took us on tour of studies. It is an interesting activity and that the Agency guides take care of go explaining and delivering relevant information of the city and places that are visited.

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.
