Bariloche Mini Trip
Do you love the mountains? Then you'll love Bariloche! Your route takes you either by plane from Buenos Aires, by bus over Patagonia or by boat through the lake district of Chile and Argentina. At the foot of the Andes, the region is impressive with its numerous deep blue lakes and mountain backdrop. Depending on the season, you'll be able to explore the area on skis or by foot on the Circuito Chico, a stunning trail that will take you through lakes, valleys and mountains. Wake up and head to a traditional Argentinean restaurant and enjoy one of the typical local trout or salmon dishes. Though Bariloche is not just known for its savory cuisine, enjoy a delicious ice cream or one of its numerous chocolate delicacies!
Depending on how you arrive, you will be picked up from the airport or the bus station and brought to your hotel. Our offered hotels are located in a quiet and beautiful location on the shores of Lake Nahuel Huapi. Take a bus or taxi to the Civic Center, a national cultural monument since 1987. Marvel in the friendly charm of Bariloche and see the city's cathedral, built by Argentine architect, Alejandro Bustillo. We also recommend you walk along the Calle Mitre, letting your nose follow the scent of chocolate. A visit to the local chocolate factory is an experience of sweet style. And when you're hungry in the evenings, why not try out smoked trout, an absolute specialty in the region Bariloche.

In the early morning, you'll meet your guide in the hotel lobby as today you'll explore the shores of Lake Nahuel Huapi, with its stunning views of high mountains and vast forests. Be careful, because according to natives, a monster lives in the Nahuelito Lake. Drive along this lake until you reach the Cerro Campanario. Go up to the viewing platform where you'll see the lake and Nahuel Huapi National Park from a great vantage point. Next, it's on to the harbor in the popular resort Llao Llao. Finally, you'll visit the Colonia Suiza as a last stop on your 6-hour tour, which was founded by immigrants from Switzerland. Chocolate, and smoked delicacies such as fish or wild boar provide a culinary delight. Afterwards, drive back to Bariloche and to your hotel where you can enjoy a relaxing evening.
