Super friendly, attentive staff. The skiing class was given by instructor Pato, and it was really cool. It took 2 hours of class and I managed to learn the basics and safely descend the snow. The meeting point was close to the Hotel, 600m away, but as it was raining it was a little inconvenient to walk in the rain and it was very cold!

Pretty good activity, trained and good guides. The only thing is that they should modify the information here on the getyourguide page, since no entrance to any national park should be paid and it does not last 8 hours maximum. If one makes the climb to the hill (optional), it still lasts only 4 hours.

Recommend Circuito Chico but not Cerro Cathedral. If you’ve only a short stay in Bariloche you get to fantastic views over Patagonia with the chairlift you may take in Circuito Chico.

The weather was perfect. The views were great. Got everything I wanted for the same price as a rental car, and no getting lost.

It turned out to be an unforgettable trip. The atmosphere and vision of the place was exciting. A place worth visiting again.
