Air Travel to Bariloche

by mgmoppy

My daughter said that she can fly to Bariloche from Buenos Aires in a couple of weeks for about
800 pesos round trip; thus, it would be not be much more than bus travel. I have not been able to find fares approaching that on any site. What airlines would fly that cheap? Any suggestions about what to do for two 24yr old athletic females
while there? Safest and most reasonable hostel? Thanks!

Hiking, rock-climbing, rafting, kayaking,horse-riding, paragliding, mountain biking - the list goes on. Bariloche has a host of activities to offer athletic females.

Agree with the Wandering Camel, host of activities in Bariloche even for not too athletic females LOL I was there in 2005, I'm energetic & tough, & quite beyond my 20s! but not really "athletic", even less so since I came home & relaxed!

All in all, it's a place for youthful spirits & it offers a great sense of adventure. It's very popular with young people, many young Argentinians there seemed to me to be from rather well-off families. Young foreigners were the usual backpackers seen across the world, on an adventure.

The difference in price you noted probably comes from the fact that flight prices are lower, within Argentina at least, for residents of Argentina. Prices are higher for non-residents. Your daughter may be able to buy at "resident" price -- I don't know her situation.

For a resident, Buenos Aires to Bariloche between 22 Oct. & 2 Nov. is ARS909 (or USD230.) I am absolutely sure that even that rate is way higher than a bus from Buenos Aires to Bariloche. I travelled through Argentina by bus & never came close to that price (though I travelled Mendoza to Buenos Aires in luxury semi-cama, then Bariloche to San Miguel de los Andes & on back to Buenos Aires, among many other long trips.)
A non-resident, for same flights & time, would pay ARS1,963 (or USD496.)

Many countries establish a lower pricing policy for their residents, to take into consideration their capacity to pay, based on their economic situation. In countries not at par with North American/European or other economic situation, pricing is often regulated to encourage resident participation in things such as flights, to name but one. This supports national airlines & other national business endeavours (who could otherwise be at risk during difficult economic periods in the country, or even generally.)

There are many good hostels in Bariloche. You may wish to check Hostel 41 Below, which gets excellent ratings. It's close to Lake Nahuel Huapi & looks fine & fun! Run by New Zealanders. Such places are very common in Patagonia, I loved them! Very safe too.

My hostel patrons in Mendoza had a list of good places to stay & things to do in Bariloche. In fact, Bariloche was *the* place most backpackers in Mendoza wanted to head for & the hostel patrons were kept busy providing best options.
You really don't need to worry about your daughter going to Bariloche but if you absolutely want a hostel or activity recommendation, let me know & I'll try to contact my hostel patrons, great people!

Travel Tips for San Carlos de Bariloche

(Teleferico)Cerro Otto

by spidermiss

You can either walk up the steep hill or catch a cable car to Cerro Otto, 4 kms west of downtown Bariloche. At the top, you're rewarded with 360 degrees panoramic views. On the left, you have views of Lago Nahuel Huapi, Isla Huemel, Isla Victoria, Cerro Campanerio and Lago Moreno. On the right, there are views of downtown Bariloche, Lago Gutierrez and Cerro Catedral.

On a clear day, the views are stunning and you can see the surroundings for miles and miles. There is also a revolving restaurant and also a number of tacky tourist shops and other activities at the summit. There are transfers availabe from Bariloche.

It cost me around 45 ARP (November 2008) for a round trip on the Cable Car. I'm not sure if the bus transfers were extra (check this out in February 2011 when I return).

Seagulls

by andal13

Any time a ship weighs its anchor from Puerto Pañuelo, flocks of seagulls follow it.
And you can feed them with cookies: you take a cookie and raise your hand, until one seagull picks it. It's a nice experience, but be careful: a seagull can confuse your finger with a cookie!

Cada vez que una embarcacion zarpa de Puerto Pañuelo, bandadas de gaviotas la siguen. Y las puedes alimentar con galletitas: tomas una galletita y levantas la mano, hasta que una gaviota la recoja. Es una linda experiencia, pero ten cuidado: una gaviota puede confundir tu dedo con una galletita!!!
