View from Cerro Campanario Lake Nahuel Huapi Bariloche

Arrive in Bariloche & Small Circuit

Day 1

Today, arrive in one of the Lake District’s most popular destinations, the beautiful Bariloche. Greet your guide at the Bariloche airport and transfer to your hotel. Then step out and discover the breathtaking landscape of the region on a half-day tour. Start on the shores of the stunning Nahuel Huapi Lake, meaning “Tigre Island” in the local Mapuche language, and venture westward through the Llao Llao area. Visit the San Eduardo Chapel and explore the Llao Llao Municipal Park, rambling along the myriad of signposted walking paths before stopping by the Tacul Village. Next, ascend to an outlook to appreciate a view that stretches as far as the eye can see, encompassing the Moreno Lake and Llao Llao region below.

Afterward, drive along Bustillo Avenue and reach Campanario Hill to board a chairlift to the summit. From the peak, experience the truly awe-inspiring beauty of Patagonia. Absorb the sight of its captivating lakes and undulating hills, and breathe in the fresh mountain air. Later on, descend slowly and return to your hotel in Bariloche in the evening.

During the tour, pause at various outlooks that offer unique, postcard-perfect views. Transfer back to your hotel in the late afternoon.

Stare in awe at these astounding larches that grow up to 60m high and almost 3m in diameter. Next, visit other highlights of the park including the giant coihue trees, the expansive lakes, waterfalls, the Cisne River and the icy, impressive Torrecillas Glacier.
