Ever beautiful San Carlos de Bariloche, lying on the shores of Lake Nahuel Huapi and surrounded by mountains and forests, is one of the most attractive cities in the world and, of course, in Argentina.

Founded in 1902, its name is a play on the words "Carlos Wiederhold", who settled down the first general store in the area (that is what "San Carlos" stands for), and a deformation of the word "vuriloche" ("different people, people from the back or from the other side"), used by the Mapuche people to refer to other native dwellers from the eastern zone of the Andes Mountain Range before their own arrival in this region.

Bariloche stands 1,640 kilometers away from the City of Buenos Aires and it offers first-class accommodation and gastronomical services. Furthermore, several tourist operators work constantly to make visitors choose this destination at all seasons.

In the summer, trout and salmonidae fly-fishing and sports recreation (especially hiking, river rafting and walks around ancient forests, as well as climbing most of the peaks surrounding the city) are some of the activities enjoyed by visitors to this great city.
During the winter, the first snowfalls announce the beginning of the ski season and the practice of winter sports at mythical Mount Catedral, considered one of the most important ski resorts in the country.

Tours on mountain bike, rowing and horseback rides with the possibility of camping in the thick forests with natural rivers and lakes turn the city outskirts into an ideal setting to have fun with the family.

For all these reasons, San Carlos de Bariloche, where youths have spent their graduation trip for decades, has everything all generations look for.

Its nightlife, its famous discos and its splendid pubs have led many visitors to wake up in front of the lake watching the sun climbing the mountain and throwing its light upon this beautiful Andean city that they will visit once and again.
