ITINERARY INSPIRATION

Welcome to San Carlos de Bariloche, or Bariloche as it’s also known. As you arrive you could be forgiven for thinking you have arrived somewhere in the Bavarian or Swiss Alps.

Bariloche is situated on the shores of Lake Nahuel Huapi and surrounded by the national park of the same name. The architecture of this area also has a strong European influence due to German settlers arriving here from neighbouring Chile in the 1840’s. With streets dotted by chocolate shops and friendly Saint Bernard’s welcoming you to the town’s main square, Centro Civico, you’re sure to enjoy your visit. Today is an arrival day and you are free to explore at your leisure.

Arrive in San Carlos de Bariloche

Today you will uncover some of Bariloche’s most breathtaking natural highlights. Your first highlight will be boarding a chairlift to the top of Cerro Campanario. From the top, you will enjoy spectacular views of the city below as well as Lake Nahuel Huapi, the snow-capped Andes and the region. From there, you will visit the Llao Llao Hotel. This exclusive resort is located between Lake Nahuel Huapi and Lake Moreno and framed by the peaks of Cerro Lopez, Cerro Capilla and Cerro Tronador. Here, you will take a one hour nature walk through Parque Municipal Llao Llao with your guide who will provide information about the rich history and natural sites of the region.

Bariloche Tour

Enjoy a half day boat excursion from Lopez Bay on Lake Nahuel Huapi and the Tristeza Sound. On a sunny day there are views from the boat to Cerro Tronador. On reaching the Tristeza branch of the river, you will disembark to hike a forest trail to the Arroyo Frey Waterfall. Along the way, be amazed by the dense forest of the Coihue and towering Alerches trees. Returning to Bariloche, you will enjoy lunch on board the boat.

You will be transferred to the airport to fly to your next destination.

Sustainability

Being environmentally accountable is a crucial part of our organisation. Chimu is currently striving towards using less paper, taking several initiatives to do so and tracking our progress along the way. Our goal: A paperless organisation. For this reason, all information given to you will be sent electronically. We encourage those who choose to travel with us to support our aspirations and actions and ask that you reconsider printing out documentation. To view these documents, you can download them to your iPad or portable computer before and during your trip.

Chimu is passionate and dedicated to sustainability measures and understands the crucial part sustainability plays within the tourism industry.

We use local guides and office staff to both maximise local employment opportunities and minimise carbon footprint. Local guides also ensure you benefit from the intimate knowledge, passion and culture of the country you’re visiting. Our guides are all highly qualified (most with university degrees) or equip with many years of experience and are paid above the standard wage. Whether it be our knowledgeable local guides, locally produced meals or the transport on tour, we do not use imported goods when local products are available. We aim to minimise our impact on the environment and give as much back as possible to the communities we work in.

While visiting the many national parks, heritage sites, museums and landmarks our travellers are encouraged to explore whilst remaining culturally aware and sensitive. We further encourage you to buy appropriate souvenirs and discourage the buying of anything wrongfully made or taken from the environment i.e. shells and endangered species products. Information on how you can be environmentally conscious, and travel responsibly will be made available in our Travellers Guides and provided during your travels by guides and staff.
