  • Safety pin.!!! Both the glacier and the Cerro. You can also stop and see incredible landscapes before arriving. I recommend leaving at 8 am from the city and also doing Cascada los Alerces. The gravel road is terrible. Go very slowly and take into account round trip times. The best of Bariloche for excursion
  • I think that such a long and deteriorated road is not justified in relation to what is offered. The black drift cannot be lowered like before, it is fenced off. It cannot be seen up close or from the front. What is most striking is that it is black. The other trails are not worth it. For example, you cannot go to the Devil's Gorge to the end, the path is closed, so time is wasted without meaning. The only thing I liked was the Saltillo de las nalcas, which is a beautiful sight in the forest and is the easiest thing to do. But clearly I would not return, I went by van and it was a headache to get to and from the base and the same or worse to return. If you go by car and take care of it, I do not recommend going up. I also do not recommend paying an excursion to go there, there are many other places in Bariloche equal to or more beautiful than this one.
