    Visit the Cerro Tronador and we were impressed with the beauty of the place and with the black glacier. In early spring, there was still plenty of snow, leaving the landscape very beautiful.

    It is a wonderful place! Worthy of being known and care! Why I ask visitors who respect and care that paradise and do not throw garbage or leave it. Carry a sachet and carry our waste.

    Absolutely amazing and gorgeous. We did the trip from Bariloche to San Martin de Los Andes along the 7 lakes route during August (winter time) and enjoyed snowing and amazing sites. Be sure to stop at each lake.

    I have not actually entered the park but I know you must pay around 150 pesos to enter and it's about 3 hours for you to see all that it has, mostly recommended on summer. The park is full is trees, there is a lake and it's near one of oldest hotels from Patagonia, llao llao, it's definitely a place I would visit if I had time.

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.
