Let me tell you why I love this place so much. First, it's incredibly gorgeous. I'll show you some pictures I gathered from google and feel free to look it up further:
My fellow classmates and I chose an independent company that organized a quite different trip than the main stream ones. It featured more adventure tourism than clubbing. One of the main activities was a 6 hur hike in the snow up the mountain and a night at a mountain refuge. It was life changing.
We did a 2 hour horse back ride up the Cerro Tronador and got to the Glaciar Ventisquero Negro, we did rappel, we did a 2 hour white water rafting, with real rapids! We went skiing, and we went clubbing only 3 nights, which was plenty.
In our hotel room.
Our trip was amazing and I left in love with Bariloche.
When I turned 21 and had a stable job and some (not much) of my own money, me and my friend Soledad went camping for about 8 days. That was a different experience than the first time because I wasn't able to afford the same activities I'd done the first time, but it was also great because I discovered new places, met people and relaxed a ton.
Here are some pictures of that trip (they might be out of order but I will explain each and every one of them):
The view after a short but steep hike up the Cerro Campanario. Soledad was mesmerized by the view and understood it all about my obsession about this place.
