Great views, but could have more structure for receiving families (restrooms and food) Good to start trip with this circuit,like an "appetizer".

an easy, pleasant drive. Be sure to stop at the Llao Llao resort and have a coffee or drink. Short hike up or take the chair lift up Cerro campanario for beautiful views. Also very nice forest walks in Parque Municipal Llao-Llao.

Using our rental car, we drove the route as best as we could using HERE maps. We stopped at many places for the views of the lakes, mountains, and forest. We did a little hiking to viewpoints. It was an enjoyable sunny day. Almost as good as driving around Lake Tahoe.

A trip up Cerro Companario is a must-do for travelers to Bariloche. The short chairlift ride gets you quickly to the top for amazing views of the surroundings...a truly stunning outlook. Then a tour around Lago Moreno and interesting tidbits about the lake and region fill you in on the history and rare species seen in the area.

We took all the tours that exit bariloche and this was the best of them. We got a "Superman" guide, which explained everything in Spanish AND English, while also driving very carefully. The stories about the areas that you pass were fascinating; not just boring details about the area, but rather actual spicy stories about the different names around, history... More

No need to do this on a tour, hope the bus no. 20 from town to bus stop 18.5, tell the driver where to stop but it's obvious as everyone gets off here. The ride is 30 kms on road and is steep in parts but you can either get off and walk, plenty of people do or cycle, rest,... More

This is a short half day tour which ends in a chair lift trip up into mountains. It rained a little bit when the clouds lifted, it was one of the most stunning views I have seen, highly recommended.

Don't miss Colonia Suiza, and check out the hotel Llao Llao! Take your time to do the full loop. We drove, but it's easy to walk + bus, or bike.
