Estamos en San Carlos de Bariloche

Stop two in the Lake district in Patagonia was San Carlos de Bariloche…. known by everyone as Bariloche πŸ™‚

We had a great Airbnb studio in Bariloche… it was extremely central, with everything we needed and had an amazing view of the main square in the civic centre.. it was the perfect vantage point!!!

The view from our window… you can see the civic centre where all the action happens and Nahuel Huapi Lake.
Never a dull moment in the square…this is a demonstration happening at the civic centre…
We didn’t even have to leave the studio to enjoy the benefits of a sunset!
Christmas is coming… goodbye statue of General Roca on a horse, hello Christmas tree!!! For Christmas they cover the horse statue with a christmas tree – you wouldn’t even know it was there…

Okay, so I’m making it sound like we didn’t leave our cosy studio, and just looked out of the window all day… but we did leave, I promise you!!! We hung out on the shores of the lake… usually eating ice-cream…

Nahuel Huapi Lake and a beautiful backdrop of snow-capped mountains – who wouldn’t want to eat ice cream looking at this view?

We also walked the trail to the top of Cerro Campanario – it was quite a nice trail through the forest, but it was pretty steep… the trail was also pretty quiet – most people at the top had obviously opted for the chairlift option! But we are tough hikers πŸ˜‰ and also cheapskates πŸ™‚ so walking up and down for us!

After the hike up,Β  this is the view that we were rewarded with πŸ™‚

We did a couple of beautiful hiking day trips as well – but that’s another story, for another post….

Bariloche was awesome πŸ™‚ We liked it a lot πŸ™‚ Lakes, snow-capped mountains, walks, ice-cream and birds – what more does a destination need?
