creation of the nearby national park. Travelers from around the world gather
here every day to spend their evenings in the town's cozy restaurants,
bars and comfortable hotels, after long days exploring the surrounding

found on the main street, Mitre. Don't forget to stop in some of the street's
many chocolate shops, as this is one of Bariloche's excellent treasures.

where adventure awaits the audacious traveler.

in the region, providing for absolutely superb views of Lake Nahuel Huapi.
