Bariloche's "Deep blue lakes, towering mountains, glaciers, climbing, boating, exploring, dining and just full relaxing make this an incomparable vacation destination. The scenery alone leaves most people breathless!." Travelideas!
San Carlos de Bariloche, commonly known as “Bariloche”, is located in Argentina’s Patagonia and only a two-hour flight from Buenos Aires.
Bariloche is an all-season destination for vacationers and tourists. Summer sports on the various lakes in the region, trekking, climbing, horseback touring, bicycle tours and other warm weather activities draw visitors to the region as much as the winter ski season does.
Summers are warm and dry; winters are cold and wet with rain and snow.
Bariloche is where the dazzling world of Patagonia begins and is quite different from the cosmopolitan city of Buenos Aires. Towns have no tango halls or big-city atmosphere, but they do have a fine selection of restaurants that you could not cover on a single trip and is an enjoyable place to wander around chocolate, souvenir, and sports stores as well as internet cafes.
Walking into the village you will feel that you have stepped through the gates of a small Swiss hamlet. The town’s location is just in the heart of the Nahuel Huapi National Park, lying on the southern shore of the lake after which the park is named, Bariloche is the perfect combination of city and nature.
There are many reasons to visit Bariloche: the beauty of the unspoiled natural rain forest, the adventure, the snow, skiing, fishing, trekking and hiking, camping, mountain biking, rafting, paragliding, etc. The town fulfills the visitor’s expectations, no matter which they are. Your days can be as peaceful as you wish, or as packed as you would like.
