What is Bariloche like?
Nestled in the foothills of the Andes and alongside Lago Nahuel Huapi is San Carlos de Bariloche.
While Bariloche is set up for hiking, mountaineering and skiing, there’s more to the city than just the standard Patagonian wonders.
With a heavy Swiss influence, Bariloche has become famous for its chocolate with more than a dozen boutique chocolate vendors in the city.
The mountains near Bariloche have plentiful hikes.
Because of the Swiss influence in the area, the city’s architecture has a European feel, especially the cathedral – which was actually built in 1946 to resemble the buildings of Europe a thousand years earlier.
The state buildings around the city centre also have a European feel.
