“Spectacular”
Reviewed 5 April 2012

My husband and i traveled up the long, windy, bumpy and dirty road to Cerro Tronador. The road is one way(thank heavens) going in at certain times and one way going out at certain times. It takes about two hours to drive on this road to come to the Glacier. Once there you can go for a small hike until you get to the glacier. It really is magnificent to see the glacier and the waterfalls. It was a beautiful day for a picnic up there and not very crowded. There is a restaurant there but we did not even venture in it.

“Bariloche at its peak.... best place to visit while here.”
Reviewed 29 March 2012

Tronador is the highest peak in this area, and it is one of the best tours you can take, anywhere in the world. Coupled with a visit to "Cascada de los Alerces" it is a one day experience. You will see lakes, mountains, a beautiful valley at the foot of this majestic peak with plenty of green and horses grazing on the lush green grass very close to the restaurant. It is a remote place, barely touched by people. Go take a look, and you will come back renewed. The "Ventisquero negro" (black glacier ) is another attraction right by the "Pampa Linda" valley (where you will stop for a rest and lunch). A glacier that because of collecting rocks from around, gets so dark in color that it seems to be made of black ice. Marvelous! A must for Bariloche visitors! Keep in mind this tour is only available during the warm months, it cannot be visited in late fall and winter.

“My favorite place in Patagonia”
Reviewed 20 March 2012

This place is just AWESOME, the black glaciar is nice but the refuge it`s my favorite place in Patagonia. "Refugio Otto Meiling" is a mountain shelter located 2000 mts sorrounded by many glaciars, the view from there is incredible and make you feel you are live!

“Awesome Must see while here”
Reviewed 12 February 2012

Make sure you visit the devils throat its a short walk maybe 3 Kilometers but worth it. Get a mpa from turism services in central Bariloche it also has several other glaciers you can see near here. Visit the black glacier as you leave the parking lot from devils thoat, it will be on your right hand side. You can see it calving if your lucky and have time to spare.
