My husband and some fellow travelers did this hike yesterday. The weather was perfect (sunny and not too windy). We took the #55 bus which only rolls out every other hour from the center of town (we got on at the bus stop near Manush)....More

This is a great refugio and base for trekking the mountain paths above Bariloche. There are two possible treks to get to the refugio. We took the one from Villa Catedral and walked for about 4 easy hours. The facilities are basic, but this is...More
