Customer Travel Tip: Sowohl die Fahrradtour um die Seen als auch die Wanderung zum refugio Frey (Cerro catedral) sind ein Muss. Und natürlich die Schokolade und die Eiscreme!

Liked: Bariloche ist ein wunderschönes Städtchen mit wundervollem Blick auf die Seen und Berge. Die vielen Holzhäuser erinnern ein bisschen an die Schweiz. Rundherum gibt es viel zu erleben, ob Radtouren, wandern oder Kayak - hier ist für jeden etwas dabei. Danach kann man es sich in der Stadt der Schokolade und Biere gemütlich machen.

Disliked: Sollte man die Umgebung erkunden so muss man meistens wieder zurück nach Bariloche, denn die Busverbindungen gehen meist erst von hier ab. Busse in den Süden, Richtung Patagonien sind selten.

Customer Travel Tip: Bring money and a credit card!

Liked: Best introduction to north Patagonia. Sceenery is spectacular, of course. A lovely town all by itself.

Disliked: The awful situation with stray dogs around town. Loose dogs everywhere, mostly just sleeping on streets or looking for something to eat.. So sad, they belong to no one and the city does nothing. The dogs never bother anyone, but it is a big problem. If I lived in Bariloche, I would definitely get involved with saving the adorable dogs.

Customer Travel Tip: If you cycle the Circuito Chico, don't expect it to be easy!

Liked: Bariloche itself is a city with lots of upmarket ski shops, chocolate chops and restaurants. Outside of Bariloche there are beautiful views, treks and bike rides which can be done. Most people seem to be there for skiing however there are plenty of other outdoors activities available.

Disliked: I probably would prefer to be there in warmer weather as the wind was like ice.
