Sitting by the Nahuel Huapi Lake, in the province of Río Negro, surrounded by millenary woods, snow-covered mountains and pristine lakes, Bariloche is a postcard of Patagonia.
This is one of the meeting/redemption points of the Andean Lakes Crossing, one of the most beautiful and traditional tours of the region.
You can enjoy this destination in any of the four seasons as Nature offers wonderfully immense landscapes, with snow-covered peaks and copper-colored lenga beeches through valleys filled with flowers and crystal-clear waters. Activities here are of a wide range: boat rides, snow-related activities, adventure, food and beverages, romantic outings and family excursions, and lots of peace and tranquility.
By the end of the 19th century, Francisco Pascasio Moreno, an Argentine expert in border conflicts, explored this region and said Bariloche “…has the most interesting combination of natural beauties I have ever seen in Patagonia…” The Nahuel Huapi National Park was created in 1903; it was the first national park of Argentina and also the first in South America.
