A trip up Cerro Companario is a must-do for travelers to Bariloche. The short chairlift ride gets you quickly to the top for amazing views of the surroundings...a truly stunning outlook. Then a tour around Lago Moreno and interesting tidbits about the lake and region fill you in on the history and rare species seen in the area.

We took all the tours that exit bariloche and this was the best of them. We got a "Superman" guide, which explained everything in Spanish AND English, while also driving very carefully. The stories about the areas that you pass were fascinating; not just boring details about the area, but rather actual spicy stories about the different names around, history... More

No need to do this on a tour, hope the bus no. 20 from town to bus stop 18.5, tell the driver where to stop but it's obvious as everyone gets off here. The ride is 30 kms on road and is steep in parts but you can either get off and walk, plenty of people do or cycle, rest,... More

This is a short half day tour which ends in a chair lift trip up into mountains. It rained a little bit when the clouds lifted, it was one of the most stunning views I have seen, highly recommended.

Don't miss Colonia Suiza, and check out the hotel Llao Llao! Take your time to do the full loop. We drove, but it's easy to walk + bus, or bike.

This is a roughly 17 mile bike ride that is pretty much all up and down, with some significant climbs. It is a loop that circles a small lake, and also abuts the large Nahuel Huapi lake in spots. For better or for worse, nearly all of the really scenic spots are clustered within a few miles, and there are... More

In this road trip you can enjoy the stunning view of several lakes and nature, you have a lot of tracking places next to the road.

We rented the bikes from "Circuito Chico Adventure", which provided us with good bikes. Every couple of kilometers there was something to see. Some better than other but definitely worth the price. I'd recommend it when you find yourself in Bariloche.

We enjoyed a very pleasant walk along the circuito Chico after getting the bus from near Cerro Otto. It was the number 20 and it took us all the way to Hotel Llao Llao (23 pesos on the bus card. 28 pesos to get back to the bus terminal). Once off the bus it was only a short walk before... More

The circuit is well signposted and easy to follow, although a creatin level of fitness is required for the numerous hills. The views are spectacular and the Parc was not at all busy in the pre-summer off-season. Be careful sharing the road with traffic before and after the Parc. Recommended for cyclists who want to get off
