Trip to Bariloche: Argentinian Patagonia

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. San Carlos de Bariloche is well known for its chocolate industry and skiing resorts, and the incredible region of Patagonia, which lies between Argentina and Chile.

We spent a couple days exploring Bariloche, after a trip to Buenos Aires, drinking wine, and eating delicious food.

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.

After visiting Nahuel Huapi, head to Llao Llao, to eat lunch at the best hotel in Bariloche.

For shopping the best place is downtown, where you will find stores, bars, restaurants, delicious chocolates and Argentinian alfajores (Dulce de leche sandwich cookies).

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, which is on our bucket list…

Truly Patagonia is a magical and special place!
