Circled by the jagged 2,000-metre high peaks of the Andes, and crested by the placid glacial waters of Lake Nahuel Huapi, Bariloche is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful spots in Argentina. Lying at the heart of the country’s Nahuel Huapi National Park, in winter the city is a popular Argentinean ski resort. In summer months meanwhile, hikers, bikers, kayakers, anglers and sunbathers come to explore the colossal mountain peaks, lush forests, rushing rivers and temperate lakeside beaches that the region is known for.
Centro — Built in the 1940s, the civic centre of Bariloche is a deliberate architectural curiosity, a complex of buildings created from local stone and wood in an Argentine twist on the Swiss alpine style. Centred on a square with the north side open to tremendous views over Lake Nahuel Huapi and the Andes beyond, you’ll find the Museum of Patagonia here.
Nahuel Huapi Lake — The focal point of the Nahuel Huapi National Park, the lake of the same name sits right on Bariloche’s doorstep. It not only offers unsurpassed mountain views, but its stretching, peaceful waters are immensely popular with kayakers and anglers. The lake is home to three different species of trout.
Playa Bonita — In summer seasons, the beaches of Bariloche are awash with those looking for a little sun but hoping to beat the extreme heat. Playa Bonita is equipped with lifeguards, bars and inns but be warned that while the waters of the lake may look balmy and inviting, they can get a little chilly, even in summer.
Cerro Catedral — As one of the most luxurious and expansive ski resorts in South America, Bariloche’s immense mountain Cerro Catedral has over 75 miles of ski runs, with challenges on offer for everyone from amateurs to experts. Whether you’re a skier or not, the view across the Andes and Nahuel Huapi below are what really makes a jaunt here worthwhile.
It’s the mountainous landscapes that steal the show in Patagonia, so why not book yourself on a scenic private tour of Bariloche? This four hour guided tour takes you from the city’s picturesque Lopez Bay to an open chairlift up Cerro Campanario, a mountain outpost, which brags one of the most exquisite views in the world. Your studied tour guide will show you all the best vantage points of Argentina’s very own lake district, complementing it with insider facts about the region.
Since the best views of Lake Nahuel Huapi come from the mountainside, it follows that the best view of the mountains come from the lake. Get out on the water with a relaxing lake crossing from Argentina to Chile. Pass the rugged peaks of the Andes, savouring the fresh glacial air as you break the icy water of the lake on a catamaran. Once you’ve arrived, hop on a bus on for a road tour of the Chilean border, with views over nearby active volcanoes.
