  • With much excitement and anticipation we prepare with my husband walk at the rock shelter, inform us through from the site of the club andino bariloche, we contacted the shelter people before going to get us some doubts, and they offered us very gentimente the information. We chose to do the hike on Wednesday 6/12. We knew that from the door of the club andino daily went out a micro to pampa linda at 8 in the morning, already we informed had not needed the company of a guide to reach the refuge and discard to make the section scheduled for the second day to the Cold Lake then there was snow and recommended us to do otherwise. The day before we call the Agency to book the micro to pampa linda and tell us that praises Wednesday do not go, that you s demos a few minutes and that us vocal if they could do something. NEVER WE RESPONDED. well, we went to rent a car and so I get the day of the walk. already had made online registration of trekking, but went to see the Park Ranger at pampa linda to warn to emprendiamos road and ask if the path was well. Told us that it was excellent and I had no need to go with a guide. We took the walk with much enthusiasm, the journey is really beautiful, four hours does not offer greater difficulties, when it comes to the zig-zag if that gets tough, effort feels there, but erl environment is spectacular in this stretch, incredible. A little more beyond completion of the zig zag began to see some patches of snow not prevented to continue with the journey, but at one point we were in a zone with plenty of snow, and where the trail des trail is lost completely , not had a mark, nothing that indicate us a direction. We tried unsuccessfully discover where follow, in some parts to the snow the piena are you sank completely and gave us fear to suffer an injury, at this point we knew we were very close to the refuge, but we thought it was imprudent to continue trying to find p or where follow, were 17 pm, us born had reach 5 hours there. We think that someone from the refuge we buscaria if not llegasemos to it, but we prefer to go to the safe and we started to return, without any difficulty, we would be back in pampa linda until dark. 20:50 we were facing the beginning of the path, at the home of the Ranger, we thought that would be concerned because we had not come to the shelter, and that maybe they would be searching. Well, that deluded! the Ranger was not, we then went to the campsite of the club andino, nor had anyone... Good, very satisfied with the decision we had taken, agotadisimos, we take the car and went back to Barioche. Our adventure, luckily I ended well, we had physical rest to return and not nothing happened. but leave me thinking, if we we had injured, or we had been waiting for you seek us, that had happened?

  • I went with a friend recently, the hike to get to the refuge from Pampa Linda, us cost 5 hours (average 4-6 hs), are beautiful landscapes, crosses several creeks and the river not well remember his name, q x has a super new and secure bridge. Arriving at the refuge, it seems an oasis, is a hotel in the mountain. The dining room is something small for 80 persons that can be hosted (has 10 rooms with 4 beds each bunk). Indeed we were sitting on the floor until do us place for dinner. I recommend to check previously if there is a large group of people in that same night, because but the meal is delayed, is enormous, and is harder to sleep at night. Always book your place before boarding. By facebook, they can do it. Overnight costs $450, it is the most expensive "shelters", with half-board (breakfast and dinner included): $1100. Zafa food, can not repeat, do not have craft beer, cans only. Eye: not organic waste the you have to carry in your backpack up to q reach the city. Heating with radiant rose who claims to have, no I experienced. Good thing about is that the bathrooms are within the refuge! Although the place is rather cold. There is hot water! Can you bathe, costing $220. The beds are comfortable, have mattress and pillow, but you got that carry the sleeping bag. If you do not have, they lend it you for $50. Since the refuge can take other walks to waterfalls, delays get on 30´ or to the glacier of Mount Tronador you got that contract if or if Guide. This excursion, costs about $6000 is expensive. The landscape is very nice until the arrival at the shelter, and from the shelter a few incredible views, which you can enjoy from the deck or terrace. you don't need to be a super physical condition, or trained to climb. I do not recommend to do it with hip problems or knees.

  • I spent two nights at the shelter. I went from Pampa Linda in a walk uphill but without significant obstacles. Bequeath to the shelter in the rain, was very rewarding. And the attention of the three staff, highly hospitable. I was fortunate to see in March, a nevada for several hours, with what ended up becoming a winter experience, with all the corresponding games. Within the refuge, all warm, eat well, play ping pong and look through its huge windows. The drop was by cold, reserving the passage of both boats in the refuge. I'm already planning to return next year.

  • This shelter is amazing and very clean. You have to take off your shoes before entering. The rooms, kitchen and bathrooms are very well mantained. There are electricity outlets and you may plug a cellphone or camera charger. At night there is electric light too. The views are fantastic! (try to wake up early to catch the clouds and maybe a low-passing condor)
  • A very magical place! Unforgettable, the path and the overnight stay. Many thanks to the keeper Mariano and his team.

  • Not to be missed. It is from Pampa Linda, from Puerto Blest or Refugio Meiling, the best stop. Excellent view, good company, and facilities of the new millennium in the mountain.

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.
