The drive from Bariloche to San Martin de los Andes (or back) is a great drive with many scenic spots to stop at. Some lakes might even invite you to take a break and enjoy the quiet and beautiful views.

If you come to this region this rout is a 'must' for driving. During summer there are so many colorful plants along the way that make you feel like driving in a disneyland.

A pleasant drive along the lakes with all the mountain ranges. Good roads. Needs caution when wanting to stop at look outs.

I thought this whole route was lovely. Something to see around every bend, Nice places to stop and eat some lunch (picnic style). Road is paved the whole way. Loved this drive!

There can't be a more beautiful thing to do than to travel this route in a car, stopping in every lake to swim in it and relax. Lago Espejo, Lago correntoso and lago meliquina were my favorite ones. Do it!

Fantastic area - we went via Villa Traful and then to SAN Martin de los Alpes - scenically breathtaking. Can rent great bikes and bob carriers from Aventur Sport if you start in S.M.d.los Alpes.
