Day Hikes from Bariloche
Mount Bella Vista
Be rewarded with spectacular views of the Argentinian Lake District from the summit of Mount Bella Vista on this off-the-beaten-track day hike. You'll begin climbing through transition forest, which gives way to bamboo-like trees and then to lengas. Whenever the cover of these trees breaks, you can enjoy far-reaching vistas. The latter part of the ascent is quite steep and on the way back down, you follow the same path.
After a short drive from Bariloche along the shore of the Mascardi Lake, hike the valley under the shadow of the mighty Mount Tronador with its cracking glaciers and cascading waterfalls. This is an easy day hike to allow yourself to be absorbed in the verdant landscapes of this region of Argentina.

After an hour's scenic drive from San Martin, you begin your ascent of Cerro Falkner, trekking through dense forest. When you emerge from the trees you are greeted by stunning views which, on reaching the summit, open up to 360 degrees, taking in Cerro Tronador and Lanin Volcano.
Achen Ñiyeu Volcano
This day hike near San Martin takes you through unusual landscapes to the crater of the Achen Niyeu Volcano. You'll trek from the beach of Laguna Verde in the Lanin National Park, through forests and then onto black sand in a desert-like landscape. On reaching the volcano, a demanding 45 minute ascent takes you to the edge of the crater, from where panoramic views include Lanin Volcano and its expansive glacier.
