San Carlos de Bariloche is a beautiful city, surrounded by lakes, glaciers, mountains and stunning landscapes. It is a perfect place for adventurers, nature lovers, water sports and skiing, depending on the season.
We spent a couple days exploring Bariloche, after a trip to Buenos Aires, drinking wine, and eating delicious food.
Bariloche is well known for its chocolate industry and skiing resorts, and the incredible region of Patagonia.
If you are planning a trip to Bariloche don’t miss the chance to visit those places:
Hike or take a gondola to Teleférico Cerro Otto: Here there is a restaurant, which, turns 360 degrees, showing off great views of the area.
Drive through, or go on a excursion along Route 40, also known as the Seven Lakes route. This goes from Bariloche to the gorgeous town of San Martín de Los Andes. There are Seven lakes along the road, where you can stop at all the panoramic points. During the summer you can even take a swim in the lakes and rivers, and enjoy many water sports.
Visit Nahuel Huapi National Park, surrounded by mountains and a glacial lake. You can hike or just admire the amazing views.
After visiting Nahuel Huapi, head to Llao Llao, to eat lunch at the best hotel in Bariloche.
Go shopping in downtown, and try the chocolates of Abuela
For dinner try Casita Suíza, one of the nicest restaurants in Bariloche.
Patagonia is a huge area between Argentina and Chile. There are a lot of places to explore, such as El Calafate and El Chaltén, and the most famous one: Torres de Paines in Chile.
We have had great times in Argentina!
