Surrounded by snowcapped peaks, the Lake District of Bariloche is a charming destination offering a rich countryside experience. The year round appeal of this Patagonian town may be credited as much to its wide variety of activities, as to its reasonably priced accommodations. Visiting in winter can get you a lifetime of wonderful photographs of the snow covered mountains forming a ring around the settlement; these mountains are also popular among skiers and snowboarders. Visiting Bariloche in the warmer months opens up hiking, trekking, horse riding and trout fishing options as well. Gorgeous alpine architecture and an extensive range of delectable local chocolates are perennial attractions of the town.
