Circuito Grande, San Carlos de Bariloche

4.5
#26 of 112 in Outdoors in San Carlos de Bariloche
Cruise around Circuito Grande to see craggy mountains and seven pristine lakes, all in one day. Weaving between the seven iconic lakes, then following the Limay and Traful rivers, the circuit spans nearly 250 km (155 mi) and makes for a long day trip. Most recommend driving the circuit counterclockwise to appreciate the best scenery in the morning, and saving the easiest road for the end of the day, when you're tired. Stop for a meal at the lakeside town of Angostura, where you can enjoy a relaxing picnic on the beach. If you feel like more of a physical challenge, cycle the route over a handful of days, camping along the way.

  • If done by own car, will stop where you want and take it as a full day, is interesting. But never you do on bus, because it can be tedious. The section of Villa La Angostura to Bariloche has no attractions, best done early. Villa La Angostura, is a nice town to walk, eat or drink. Fantastic Mirror Lake Beach for a bath and have a good time. Travel to Villa Traful rubble through a very beautiful forests and views of Lake Traful. Villa Traful is a very interesting place, good craft beer at the Ruca. Multiple options of nature. Beautiful mirador del lago, 4 km after Traful

  • The views are incredible! There are so many vistas to take in, small hikes to do and picnic areas to visit you won’t believe there is so much beauty in one place in the world. The landscapes are super...  more »
  • While the visit to the Lakes is linda this trip that takes all day is very tiring to do sightseeing. Take 3: 30 hours of ida and the same back in a single day! Such fish as 14 adults and 4 kids we went we thought extenuar you were sleeping much travel without seeing everything. There are many stops because they are 180 kms from ida and back, so do so with eagerness. If you go with children should think about it much because they do not enjoy both ride a bus
