Bariloche, or San Carlos de Bariloche to use its full name, is one of the most picturesque cities in Argentina. It is located at the foothills of some impressive mountains and surrounded by lakes and natural parks. Here you'll find countless opportunities for summer and winter activities in the surrounding countryside, and some great hostels to stay in. From skiing at the Cerro Catedral ski resort or swimming and sunbathing on the beaches of the lakes, to trekking in the mountains or canoeing on the lakes, there's plenty of things to keep you active. Bariloche is also excellent for chocolate lovers, with an abundance of delicious chocolate shops and a museum making this Argentina’s chocolate capital. There really are picture-postcard views in nearly every direction, and many of the attractions are natural, including Nahuel Huapi National Park, the Lanin Volcano and the Viejo Volcan caves.
