Unexpectedly wonderful!

Let me start by giving you some context. We are a family with a biologist (mom) and geologist (dad) and two kids who are very interested in fossils, rocks, and animals. This little museum blew us away. It's very small and very full, and the more we looked the more cool things we saw. Fossilized cycad! Fossil bivalve with a... More

Even if you are not into natural history, you'll be impressed at what these small 4 rooms packed from floor to ceiling with artifacts have to offer. From meteorites to dinosaur excrement and taxidermy everything, this private collection competes with well-funded museums in the breadth of items on exhibit. Unfortunately, the rooms are so stuffed with artifacts and fossils that... More

The best 40 pesos I have spent in a long time. This tiny museum is crammed with bones, fossils, stuffed birds, dinosaur relics. The owner is responsible for creating the collection and had I been a paleontologist, I would have spent hours talking to him on his favourite subject! This is way better than the Bariloche Museo de Paleontology in... More

Went here in the winter for some hiking. There's a good path that will take you to a waterfall, and then it continues to a couple viewpoints. The views aren't as amazing as the other hills in the area (Cerro Otto, Llau, and Camanario being my favorites), but it's still nice. It was about 2-3 hours round trip from the... More

It is a great lake surrounded by high mountains. It is a great place to come and swim in the summer, although the water is always cold

All tours to "Cerro Tronador" drive along "Lago Gutiérrez", with its blue waters and pine covered forests. It was named by famous Argentinian naturalist and explorer Francisco Moreno (mostly known as "Perito Moreno") after his academic mentor Juan Maria Gutiérrez. Located at only 12 km from San Carlos de Bariloche, "Lago Gutiérrez" is popular for biking, kayaking, picnicking and sunbathing.... More

The Lake is impressive with great views. It is almost as if this is the only place in the world when you are there....hidden in a valley. Snow covered peaks on top.....

Not something very special but tranquile and romantic. Beautiful views to the lake and the mountains, easy hike along the lake, lovely waterfall. We enjoyed a lot. Started from catedral, got down on el balcón de gutierres, then to the waterfalls and took a bus 50 back to Bariloche directly from the lake. Easy 14km relaxing hike.

The hiking trails to the scenic overlooks up the mountain was great. it was challenging enough that you felt like you got some exercise, but not too difficult that the whole family (and plenty of dogs) couldn't handle it. When you got to the the scenic overlooks, they were magnificent and you really felt like you were rewarded for making... More

We biked from Bariloche through the back trails. Nice ride. Then we went kayaking. Very beautiful territory.
