Description

Be awed by the thunderous sound of calving glaciers at Cerro Tronador (Tronador Hill), the highest mountain in the Andean Lake District, located in the heart of Nahuel Huapi National Park. Soak up the breathtaking scenery on a day trip from Bariloche. You’ll pass gorgeous mountain streams and cross the Manso River before a short walk to the glaciers with your knowledgeable guide – a sight to remember!

Itinerary

San Carlos de Bariloche

Early in the morning, we will pick you up from your hotel in the centre of Bariloche and head towards Guttierrez and Mascardi Lakes. Driving along their shores, we will then take a dirt road to get to Cerro Tronador, where the journey really will start.

Lake Gutierrez

Cross the Pampo de Huenuleo and along the rippling creeks of Melgarejo and Pilmayen until you reach Lake Gutierrez. Stop to snap photos and stretch your legs at a lodge and private beach on the shores of this unspoiled body of water.

Cerro Tronador

Climb back on the coach and continue along Mascardi Lake and across the popular white-water rafting destination, the Manso River. Stop in Pampa Linda, in the shadow of Cerrro Tronador, for lunch (own expense). Continue your coach journey through a forest of native lenga and coihue trees in the Vuriloches Valley until you reach the Ventisquero Negro (Black Snowdrift) glacier.

Ride the coach a bit further to reach Cerro Tronador, the tallest mountain in the Lake District at 11,500 feet (3,500 meters). Home to seven glaciers, it was so named for the thunderous sound that ice chunks frequently make falling from the glaciers' faces. View Cerro Tronador's three peaks — Pico Chileno, Pico Argentino and Pico Internacional — while taking a short walk into the woods with your guide to view the glaciers. 

 Afterwards, we will get back on the vehicle and we will take you back to Bariloche.
