Colonia Suiza, San Carlos de Bariloche

A short drive out of Bariloche, Colonia Suiza draws backpackers, campers, and souvenir hunters to the picturesque foothills of the Lopez Mountain. Home to workshops and stores offering handmade stone and wood items, the small village also serves as an ideal base for exploring the surrounding Andean wilderness. You can choose to discover the pristine natural area on foot or on horseback, and to sleep under the stars and rely on your wits for survival, or to take advantage of the several family-friendly hostels accomodating adventure-seekers from across the globe. Several teahouses serve homemade strudels, berry cakes, and goat cheeses.

  • Cologne Switzerland is a cute little town relatively near Bariloche, a short walk from shopping with crafts, good bars, cafes and restaurants. The landscapes of the area are very welcome and a few blocks from the shopping trip there is also a beach on the Lake. We did the walk after visiting cerro López, who is very close to there also.

  • We went with my partner on a day of torrential rain, the truth is the way this outstanding, not to go to 100 km/h but going normal speed of 40 km/h on a gravel road should not have problems, we went with my partner a day Wednesday (this is important (, since the fair only is open Wednesday and Sunday) early around 10 a.m., the posts still were not armed but that we could start to see handicrafts from the 12, so I recommend going a little later, they have interesting things, but do not salt in what you see in any craft fair, highlight what the curanto (meat vegetable com) and the homemade conida offered in Swiss colony that is worth a visit if you're a lover of the gourmet dishes for vegans and vegetarians, it is more if your intention is to know cu ranto without any animal component clarify them prior in advance and prepare to your liking. It is necessary to arrive around 11 o'clock to find parking easily. Don't let go is a very positive experience
