During our crossing the Andes we got to see Tronador from many angles. At more than 11,000 feet, it is a true landmark for this part of Patagonia. We had clear weather for the crossing and could watch Tronador above us or in the distance for many miles.

Enjoy Pampa Linda from the valley or hike up to either Otto Meiling or Rocca Huts. Check in to hiking through from Pampa LInda via Rocca to Lago Fria and Puerto Brest for the ferry back to Bariloche. Most arrive in Pampa Linda and head straight for the huts - or visit the valley and head back to Bariloche. Morning... More

Took a bus tour, made several stops on the way to the mountain. Ultimately traveled to an overlook of the black glacier. We were fortunate that we had a clear day for the trip. Would not be as impressive on a very cloudy day.

It's a long and a bit tiring dirt road but you'll be rewarded with great views of Ventisquero Negro glacier and Cerro Tronador. It's also possible to get to Alerces Waterfall, in a small but beautiful and shaded forest.

We took the day with our family (children aged 9-11). It takes forever to get there and the roads are rough. As soon as you detour from the main road, you encounter the park ranger's station. You have to pay to enter the national park and the prices vary if you are argentine or foreigner. Very soon you get to... More

This is the highest peak near Bariloche. You need to take a bus or go with a car since it is some km away from the city. You have many different options to enjoy nature

Takes about 6 hours if traveling in a group of moderate experienced hikers. Beautiful views the entire way. Stayed at the Refugio ( shelter) with about 80 people. They just throw mattresses on the floor and you put your sleeping bag on top. Very comfortable and warm. The dinner was great and a good value at 300 pesos. Very worth... More
