Tronador Hill Day Trip from Bariloche

Summary

After pickup at your Bariloche hotel, settle into your seat aboard the comfortable coach for the scenic drive toward Cerro Tronador. Cross the Pampo de Huenuleo and along the rippling creeks of Melgarejo and Pilmayen until you reach Lake Gutierrez. Stop to snap photos and stretch your legs at a lodge and private beach on the shores of this unspoiled body of water. Climb back aboard the coach and continue along Mascardi Lake and across the popular white-water rafting destination, the Manso River. Stop in Pampa Linda, in the shadow of Cerro Tronador, for lunch (own expense). Continue your coach journey through a forest of native lenga and Coihue trees in the Vuriloches Valley until you reach the Ventisquero Negro (Black Snowdrift) glacier.  Ride the coach a bit further to reach Cerro Tronador, the tallest mountain in the Lake District at 11,500 feet (3,500 meters). Home to seven glaciers, it was so named for the thunderous sound that ice chunks frequently make falling from the glaciers' faces. View Cerro Tronador's three peaks — Pico Chileno, Pico Argentino, and Pico Internacional — while taking a short walk into the woods with your guide to view the glaciers.  
Return to your coach for the ride back to Bariloche and drop-off at your hotel.
