Welcome to Bariloche
Welcome to Patagonia, and one of the most famous cities of the region: Bariloche.
Upon arrival, a driver will be waiting for you to take you to your hotel.
You will end your first day in a VERY different way. A sunset kayak trip in one of the favorite paddling destinations, Estancia Peuma Hue on Lake Gutiérrez. This lake is surrounded by native forest with huge coihues spreading their arms in the waters, waterfalls that flow into the lake, sunken trees under crystal clear waters and fuchsias or other wildflowers growing along the shore.
After some instructions, you will begin your adventure in double touring kayaks to enjoy the sunset, one of the most incredible moments at the lake. This is one of the few places on Earth where the waters are so clean and pure that they can be drunk directly from the stream or waterfall without danger!
Upon returning, you will enjoy the warmth of a mountain house with an excellent service and in an environment of forests, lakes and mountains. You will be delighted with a dinner in this unique place (Included: starter, main course, dessert and drinks with and without alcohol). You can savor typical Argentine and regional Patagonian dishes up to international cuisine. The products used in the plates come from the organic vegetable garden and greenhouses and from the fruit trees, all located within the Estancia; as well as producers in the area.
Pick you up between 5 and 6 pm. by the hotel.

Circuito Chico and its inhabitants
Today you will explore the most famous tourist area of Bariloche, with its incredible panoramic views, but you will also meet its inhabitants: local artists and artisans.
Thus, as you admire the magnificent Lake Nahuel Huapi, you will be visiting different places that will bring you closer to the cultural identity of the place.
An experience that will allow you to discover Bariloche from the eyes of its artists, visiting their workshops and learning about their work and personal story. You will explore the intimacy of the residential neighborhoods in the western area and even though you travel through a semi-urban environment, you will continue to enjoy the beauty of the Nahuel Huapi National Park. And as in any visit to ”friends”, you will taste with them some of the exquisite local products. The artists who will receive you have a deep commitment to their culture.
You will visit 3 artistic workshops of equal quality that may vary depending on your interests (do not hesitate to let us know if you have any particular interest).
You will discover the famous Circuito Chico, crossing the area of the Moreno lake and the Panoramic Point, in which the great hotel LLAO-LLAO and the chapel S. Eduardo stand out, being this, the furthest point of the itinerary.
