More from Bariloche and the Lake Region
Thought I would share a view more pics from around Bariloche.
Our first week we did a Jeep tour with two other couples. One from Spain (pictured above) and one from Mexico. It was great to converse in Spanish with three different dialects.
The Jeep tour took us up to mountains of Cerro Otto and around Cerro Catedral before heading west of town towards Llao Llao (pronounced shou shou) where the hotel by the same name is. We completed the trip on the famous Circuito Chico drive.
Circuito Chico offers numerous breath-taking stops along its route. If you come to Bariloche, rent a car and drive the route yourself. You'll want the freedom to pull off and take pictures, hike or eat when you want.
Trust me, the organized tours of the area are for the blue-haired set and can be maddening. Avoid them altogether. The 4x4 jeep experience we took was more exciting than the typical tour and we we even had an Asado (BBQ) by the side of beautiful Lake Moreno.
