Welcome to Bariloche! You are welcomed at the airport and brought to your hotel. In the afternoon you explore the surroundings of Bariloche on the Chico Circuit, a drive around Lake Nahuel Huapi. On the way you will do several short hikes and can enjoy fantastic views over the Moreno and Nahuel Haupi lakes.
Today you explore the other side of the national park by kayak. You drive to Lake Gutierrez and get a short introduction into kayaking before starting your tour on the deep blue lake in a double kayak. You paddle in crystal clear water until reaching the bank of the lake. In the afternoon you have some free time to enjoy this idyllic region on your own.
Today you start the highlight of the trip, the 2-day Negra trek. You drive to the starting point of the trip at the Goye River and follow a trail to the beginning of a steep ascent. In a short time period you will have climbed around 800m/2,624ft while enjoying great views of the surrounding mountain landscapes and the Laguna Negra. The descent leads to simple mountain huts next to the lake where you will spend the night.
You start on a trail along the lake, always accompanied by astonishing panoramas of the lake and mountain scenery, and reach the top of Cerro Bailey Willis on a gravel path. Then the trail leads to a quiet valley before starting a second steep ascent to the summit of Cerro Lopez. Up there you are awarded with great views over Lake Nahuel Huapi, the Cerro Tronador and Chilean volcanoes. After enjoying the view you descend and are brought back to Bariloche.
Today you go on a boat trip to the remote inlet Brazo Tristeza of Lake Nahuel Huapi where you can enjoy incredible mountain landscapes and breath taking waterfalls. With a bit of luck you can admire the view of Cerro Tronador and its glaciers when the weather is cooperating. At the end of the inlet you will go on land and hike through a forest to beautiful waterfalls. On the way back you enjoy your lunch on board the boat.
In order to take your next flight, a transfer will bring you to the airport in Bariloche.
