Length: 6.4 mi • Est. 5 h 5 m
This trail offers a variety of different terrains, a lush forest, waterfalls, and some spectacular views. You will also have to cross a stream. Along the way you will find a colorful Refugio Lopez (a classic South American mountain refuge). You can make arrangements to stay the night there. Before you reach the summit, you will also find La Hoya (the pit), a small mountain lake. From here, the trail can get a bit more serious and steep before you reach the summit.Show more

Such an incredible hike which offers panoramic views of the lakes around Bariloche and tremendous old forests. It is an extremely popular option departing from Bariloche, and hikers can also take one of the ski gondolas which still run in summer. From there, there is an option of either taking a shortcut that requires some strenuous bouldering, or a longer but more relaxed route through a forest. Refugio Frey is well equipped with comfortable beds and good facilities, although camping is an option too. Show more

hardYellow StarYellow StarYellow StarYellow StarYellow StarYellow StarYellow StarYellow StarYellow StarGray Star(6)
Length: 18.6 mi • Est. Multi-day
Note: The Argentine side risks becoming no longer accessible due to increasingly warm weather in the region destabilizing the glaciers. Tronador is located along the border between Argentina and Chile near the city of Bariloche, in the southern Andes. There are two refugees on Tronador, but you also can camp outside the refugee for free. There are good places to put you tent, and the water is good. Show more
