Snapshots from Bariloche

Bariloche was my first stop in Argentina. But it took me a while to realise that it was Argentina, and not Switzerland. Because San Carlos de Bariloche – as is its actual full name – has got a lovely little stone church on its main square, is surrounded by mountains and lakes, and is famous for its chocolate. (And rightly so, I must admit.)

But no, Bariloche is truly part of Argentina. We stayed there for a couple days and I spent them with my pal Mia walking around town, dutifully tasting each chocolate shop’s products to ensure overall quality, and hiking through Nahuel Huapi National Park to make up for it.

Mia found out that Argentinian winds are INSANE

La Cascada de los Duendes 

Cerro Catedral – a busy skiing resort in the winter, and a magnificent viewpoint in the summer

The view that was worth the pain – turns out Mia is terrified of heights

Next up… We drive all the way down Patagonia’s Ruta 40!

  1. the taste of chocolate is nice and gives good morale, in a lot of countries,…. except in hot weather.

    idea of “Pasquan island” in front of the 4 statues?
