San Carlos de Bariloche

Capital of Adventure Tourism this city has countless sensational activities.

San Carlos de Bariloche, simply known as “Bariloche” is located in the Southwest of the province of Río Negro in Patagonia, at the foot of the Andes.

The roots of modern Bariloche come from German settlers who came over from Chile at the turn of the 20th century. In the 1930s, with the creation of a southern railway link and the bestowing of a National Park title on the region, Bariloche grew.

Initially growth was in an ordered Western European style, but more modern times have seen a somewhat haphazard development. Nevertheless, this is a fascinating town and ideally placed for trips around the region. With its’ numerous fun-filled activities, it’s easy to understand why Bariloche was crowned the national capital of adventure tourism.

Surrounded by the immense Nahuel Huapi National Park, also reputedly the chocolate capital of the country, this city offers a wide variety of activities no matter what the weather is like. Skiing, birdwatching on the shores of glittering lakes, hiking, kayaking, rafting, camping. Our visitors can do it all; the greatest challenge is deciding what to do first!
