The town of San Carlos de Bariloche is considered the gateway to Southern Patagonia.  It was the first town established in this untamed region in the 1800’s and it has a lively history. It now boasts a modern airport and a flight from Buenos Aires is under 2 hours in duration. Flights to Buenos Hotel Lloa Lloa overlooking Lago Nahuel Huapi in Bariloche, ArgentinaAires and other cities in the country are frequent. It is also easy to arrive to Bariloche from Chile either by land or by a one-day unique combination of road and lake transportation crossing the border through the Andes.

Bariloche is situated on the shores of Lago Nahuel Huapi, a huge inland lake with a surface area of 200 square miles. The lake dominates this entire region with spectacular views of the Andes dominating its western shores and much of it is within the huge Nacional Park of Nahuel Huapi (prounonced na-well-wappie). The park extends from the highest peaks of the continental divide to the beginnings of the steppe of Patagonia to the east. It encompasses a variety of landforms and vegetative communities that reveal a cross section of the  temperate zone of the South America ecosystems.Hotel Llao Llao -- For those wanting a holiday break from fishing or just wanting to relax, Llao Llao is the place. It offers an 18 hole gold course, pools, spa, piano bar and tennis courts with magnificent views of the Lago Nahuel Huapi and surrounding peaks of the Andes and glacial covered Mt. Tronador. Other activities in the area can be arranged such as scenic hiking, lake cruises, and horseback rides.

This area has often been referred to as the “Switzerland of the South” and rightly so with it’s mountain terrain, abundant lakes, and Swiss architecture. The town is an international tourist destination. It offers fine dining, good shopping and a cultured aire. It has a selection of accommodations ranging from simple inns to five star hotels as well as riverside or lakeside lodges. It has excellent restaurants serving European cuisine, game, and of course Argentine beef with world -class wines and many from the vineyards of Mendoza, the wine-growing region to the North. From here day trips for birding, fishing, horseback riding, nature tours and hiking as well as ranch visits are available and all in breathtaking scenery. It is the perfect stop off for the start of a Patagonia adventure.
