Tour Description

In the north west of the Rio Negro province lies Bariloche, which is the biggest town in the Patagonia Andes. At 770m above sea level, just on the extent of Nahuel Huapi Lake, it is also the starting point for exploring the Nahuel Huapi National Park. The town and its surroundings are also called “Switzerland of Argentina” and many sights of the region, from the border of the lakes to the snow white mountains, can be found in the Alps. Moreover, the whole town smells of chocolate which can be found in many varieties and tastes. Enjoy untouched nature, solitude and peace.
