San Carlos de Bariloche
Bariloche, Argentina is located at the foothills of the Andes Mountains in the province of Rio Negro. It lies approximately 85 miles northeast of Puerto Mont, Chile and 1100 miles southwest of Buenos Aires. Bariloche can be compared to several tourist mountain towns in the US like Jackson Hole, Wyoming or Vail, Colorado. It overlooks the 250 square mile Nahuel Huapi Lake. Surrounding the town is a 1.9 million acre National Park also called Nahuel Huapi. The lake and park provide picturesque views and an abundance of outdoor activities year round.
Although Bariloche is one of the largest cities in Northern Patagonia, it has a small town feel. In the pedestrian friendly downtown area, locals greeting each other are a common site. The Swiss and German influences are apparent as one explores the streets with elegant shops and fine hotels. The modern Bariloche Airport is one of town’s greatest assets with multiple daily flights to and from Buenos Aires and other cities.
