In the winter, it's one of the most visited places in San Carlos de Bariloche because it's biggest attraction is skiing. How I love whizzing down the hills I visited there in winter and I definitely made the right choice. We never would have appreciated its lakes' charms, its forests, its colors, the spectactularly immense mountains that surrounded us. A joy for nature-lovers.
The photos posted were taken from the catamaran Cau Cau, during a tour of Victoria Island and the Forest of Myrtles. It was a bright September day in 2008, just when spring begins. The place is fantastic. I recommend it to anyone who can hike. Do not miss it - you will not regret it! The landscapes really make it worth it.
The famous Cerro Catedral ski resort in San Carlos de Bariloche has slopes suitable for all levels surrounded by beautiful scenery. There are various back country tours as well. You can go skiing on the trails or in the woods. It's fun to ski slopes off the beaten path, but that are completely safe. One of my favorite places was La Laguna. There are other activities as well, like hiking, ATVs, snowmobiles and sleds.

Situated just outside the city of Bariloche, this is one of the places with the best views of nature: A few lakes, the Hotel Llao Llao and the Andes in the background. The bottom of the hill can be reached by bus, then you can walk up but most people go up on chairlifts. Unfortunately, Bariloche is an area without many sunny days, so you will have to pray to be able to see this amazing landscape.
The Bariloche Civic Center is made up of a series of buildings made with stone and local wood. Its original design was made by San Carlos de Bariloche in his trademark style. Unlike most urban centers in which the church and municipal buildings are around a square in a square, the Civic Center of San Carlos de Bariloche was designed in a U shape leaving one side open facing Lake Nahuel Huapi.
In February 2007, we made the small Bariloche circuit, then went to Lake Gutierrez, which is a few miles away from the city. We did a short hike to the waterfall of the Elves (which is suitable for everyone), and then we went to a lookout point that was slightly farther away. The places around the lake are full of beauty, vegetation, and above all, tranquility. With dirt roads, this lake is the ideal place to rest, and you can take some great pictures here, too.
Nordic skiing is available at a place called Cerro Otto. It is a beautiful place like all ski resorts in San Carlos de Bariloche. There is a rotating restaurant on top of the hill from which you can appreciate the view from every direction. It's located 1405 meters above sea level. The mountain also hosts a confectionery museum of DA VINCI.
If you are visiting Patagonia, I highly recommend that you include a trip to Puerto Blest, Cascade Pitchers and Puerto Frías. The tour starts in San Carlos de Bariloche in the port of Puerto Pañuelo. Take the catamaran "The Condor" that leads to Puerto Blest in the incredible Lake Nahuel Huapi. From here you can go on a trip to Puerto Blest amongst a region surrounded by greenery and stunning scenery. Along the way you pass by the island where Francisco Sentinel P. Moreno, known as Perito Moreno, is buried, the famous scientist and explorer, and the first Argentine to reach the lake Nahuel Huapi. He was also the creator of the national parks of Argentina. I share my wonderful journey of this place with you on my travel blog blogspot com/2009/12/viaje-la-patagonia-argentina-tour.Html Elisaserendipity
These photos were taken in the Black River Province, in Argentina. The pictures are very symbolic for me and give me beautiful memories, and brings me back to the peace I felt when I was taking the photos that you are all looking at.
The Otto Cable Way is located in Bariloche on the hill of the same name. From the top at 1450 metres there is a panoramic view of Bariloche. Inside the gazebo, there is a 360 degree rotating restaurant, which is spectacular! There are many masterpieces, copies of course, among others. The most impressive is the view, and you can't miss the sunset from there.
The Road of the Seven Lakes is the road between Bariloche and Villa la Angostura, and it's only closed during heavy snowfall in the winter. It's a wonderful and magical place that seems to awaken from a long sleep hidden under the snow, the flowers exploding into multiple colors and different shades of green. The road, which is about 184 kilometers long, is fully paved, except for some 50 kilometers of it that's still gravel. The tour is really amazing and you won't be able to stop looking at it all. The waterfalls, rocks, trees, lakes, it really is something worth seeing. The Tourist Information and Civic Center is open daily from 9 a.m. until 9 p.m.
