The holiday capital of the Argentine South, Bariloche (also referred as San Carlos de Bariloche) is one of those places that Argentines always tell you not to miss, the kind of hype that can easily lead to disappointment.
Europeans familiar with the Alps – or North Americans or New Zealanders used to similar scenery – are unlikely to
travel thousands of kilometres to see a simulacrum of Switzerland. The city is undeniably worth the trip, though –
not because of the alpine style, but because it is the main base for visiting the stunningly pristine landscapes of the
Parque Nacional Nahuel Huapi which surround all around San Carlos de Bariloche.
Places to visit:
- Cerro Catedral
- Parque Nacional Nahuel Huapi
- Cerro Otto
- Isla Victoria
- Laguna Negra
- Cerro Campanario
- Cerro Viejo
- Cerro Tronador
- Camping Las Carpitas Villa Mascardi
