We were in two minds about doing this bike ride, but it was a really beautiful undulating ride. We hired helmets and bikes from cordillera bike just 18km out of Bariloche. The ride took us to some great beaches and stunning view points, with time for a few walks as well. If you get the weather, and are averagely fit... More

This is a circular drive that can be done in about two hours if you do not stop, but that would be a big mistake. Be sure and have lunch at Cerveceria Patagonia, where not only the views are awesome but the food and craft beers are quite nice. Also take the side trip to Colonia Suiza, a small Swiss... More

Having never been to Bariloche, this was one of several tours that our travel agency recommended. We were picked up at 9 by the van and went to Cerra Campanario. The mild ski lift is 200p@, but the best 200p I've ever spent. I'm not much for heights, but the ski lift is not high off the ground and it's... More

we got the bus from Bariloche to Circuito Chico. The walks are very picturesque and the views on some of the hidden beaches are outstanding. As most pictures of Bariloche have the Llao Llao hotel we decided to also take a walk up to the hotel the views are fantastic and we also ventured inside where we sopped off off... More

This is a cycling trip around the Llao Llao peninsula. You hire bikes from Circuito Chico mountain bikes and they explain the route and any difficulties. Staff are friendly and helpful and we had good quality bikes. The route is hilly and challenging.

We got to puerto pañuelo by bus from bariloche and rented bikes to do the circuit. We were told 4 hours would be enough time, but there are some reasonably tough climbing involved. I would have enjoyed the circuit by car, stopping at the many amazing panoramic view points. The bike... for trained younger people!

Be sure to take some good hiking or walking shoes and a camera. It's beautiful and lots of nice little stops and hiking trails along the way. You can do this circuit by car, bus, or hitchhiking. There are many hitchhikers along the way. Stop in and see the historic LLao LLao hotel for afternoon high tea. Be sure to... More

If you rent a car, this is the perfect way to see numerous vistas and parks right outside of Bariloche's center.

We rented bikes from Cordillera Bike Rental & Tours. They were very helpful and reassuring. I haven't been on a bike in years, and I managed to complete the curcuito chico (with some walking the bike up the last section of some of the hills). Other reviews had me very nervous about the difficulty level, but it's not as bad... More

We enjoyed this drive very much. Stopped for pictures several times along the road. Also there are a few breweries that are very good along the way. Take your time and definitely don't miss this!
