Sprinkled with hills that offer timeless views and pristine lakes in a wide variety of blues and greens, Bariloche and its outskirts outstand in Patagonia.
During my trip I had the opportunity to meet unforgettable views and I would like to highlight Campanario Hill in Bariloche, offering a first glimpse of all the wonderful landscapes you can enjoy during your journey, with its highpoint: Nahuel Huapi Lake.
Discovering Arrayanes’ Woods was one of the experiences that offered a special approach to nature, as you are able to feel the life in this bushes that, due to the climate conditions, they develop into trees. For those willing to be surprised by the power of nature, I recommend not miss a visit to Cerro Tronador (that would be: Thundering Hill), to take some minutes of silence and listen to how the glaciers thunder, when they come off from above.
A recommendable trip is to the Seven Lakes Route, where you can enjoy different viewpoints to appreciate the beauty and variety that the lakes offer.
Nowadays there are also options to navigate Blest and Tristeza’s branch of the Nahuel Huapi. I had de opportunity to take the first tour, where you enjoy a navigation day and a very special stroll through the valdivian jungle.
Regarding the city, Bariloche distinguishes thanks to its ups and downs and a main street full of excellent cuisine. I would like to highlight its wide variety of chocolate houses, a must in this city, as well as a typical cheese fondue, especially during winter
I also visited nearby towns, like Villa La Angostura and San Martin de los Andes, very peaceful and with incomparable attractive, such as walks through the woods, Correntoso Lake and Quila Quina beach.
As a closure to the trip, I would like to suggest a visit to the historical Llao Llao Hotel, to taste its tea service enjoying one of the most privileged landscapes of the area.
