The majestic city of San Carlos de Bariloche lies on the shores of Lake Nahuel Huapi, which combined with mountains and forests makes up the context of one of the most beautiful sites on Earth.
Bariloche was founded in 1902. Its name is a combination of “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.
Lying on the West of the Province of Río Negro and 1,640 kilometers away from the city of Buenos Aires, Bariloche offers all the services and amenities necessary for visitors to choose this place as the perfect location to rest at any season.
On arrival at airport, please collect luggage and proceed to the arrivals hall where you will join your local guide for transfer to downtown. Accommodation will be at Cacique Inacayal hotel , located over Nahuel Huapi lake shore, close to Civic Centre and commercial streets of Bariloche city. Welcome drink included.
