Our recommended tours for your free day in Bariloche:

  •  Visit Playa Bonita, it is on km 8 of Av. Bustillo (there are public buses leaving from downtown every twenty minutes). During summer months, on hot days, it gets full up with families and brave people who jump into the cold waters of Nahuel Huapi!
  • Take a horseback ride through a long-living cypresses and coihues forest, surrounded by mountains and glacier streams until reaching an excellent panoramic view of the outstanding Patagonian landscape. Set off along the shore of the lake to complete this beautiful two hour horseback riding experience.

The reserve is composed of a vast Patagonian Andean Forest, known in Spanish as “bosque de montaña”, and Lake Moreno and Nahuel Huapi as its natural borders. Today you’ll hike along an old hiking path through Mount Llao-Llao, Tacúl Bay, the Roman Bridge, Hidden Lake and Los Troncos Bay.
