Mountains, chocolate and adventure, San Carlos de Bariloche is the capital of Argentina’s Lake District, a bustling swiss-Alpine style resort surrounded by snow-dusted mountains and volcanoes. Once centre of the region’s cattle industry, the town was redeveloped in the 1930’s as a tourism hub and the centrepiece for the new Nahuel Huapi National Park. Today, hotels vie with restaurants, bars and chocolate shops along the shores of Nahuel Huapi. Bariloche provides the perfect starting point for exploring Argentina’s picturesque Lake District. Outside the city, chairlifts offer breathtaking, panoramic views from the mountains Cerro Campanario and Cerro Catedral or head out along the magnificent “Seven Lakes” or “Circuito Chico” driving loops. 

Regular flights link Bariloche with the outside world while access to Chile just across the border is provided by the wonderful “Cruce de Lagos”. This “Lake Crossing” is a full day (or overnight) combination of bus and boat travel that takes visitors through a picturesque chain of lakes and mountains to reach Puerto Varas the other side of the Andes.
