Bariloche Tours and Packages to Argentina's Lake District boasts beautiful landscapes of deep blue glacial lakes, snow capped mountains, flowering meadows and verdant forests.

This area appealed to touring revolutionary Che Guevara as much as outlaws on the run, Butch and Sundance.

The Lake District, also known as Northern Patagonia is one of the world's great Alpine playgrounds, with plenty to discover. In the winter months Bariloche turns into a ski resort, in the spring, summer and fall it is the perfect mountain retreat. Argentina's most beautiful region is blessed with picturesque forests, deep valleys and jagged peaks, spectacular lakes and scenic rivers of all hues from green and blue to indigo and turquoise.

Wherever you go, it's hiking heaven: endless views, virgin landscapes and no crowds. Try climbing, skiing, white water rafting, and horse riding; or succumb to the gentler pleasures of lake cruises and lolling in idyllic waterfront retreats, for fine cuisine and pampering.

All roads start at the quaint central town and adventure centre of Bariloche, set inside a national park, and offering all lake and mountain on the doorstep. From here, head north along serpentine roads through fairy tale landscapes of forest and lakes for upscale resorts like San Martin de los Andes, world-class fishing, and spectacular riding at authentic estancias. Further north still, you'll find rare prehistoric beauty, snow capped volcanoes and forests of monkey puzzle trees. Or, head south from Bariloche to wild and rugged lands beloved of Che Guevara and outlaws Butch and Sundance, at El Bolson and beyond, where Los Alerces national park is among the countries most untouched.

There are several flights a day to Bariloche from Buenos Aires (2 hours), and some in summer connecting Bariloche Tour Packages are available to visit other towns in Patagonia, El Calafate and Puerto Madryn (these vary year to year). From Bariloche, hire a car to access more remote places and to make the most of the landscapes. Most places can be reached by bus Via Bariloche connects main towns, and within Bariloche, there are frequent buses and along the lake shore to Llao Llao, and up to Cerro Catedral for starting hikes and going skiing. Cyclists can hire bikes though serious cyclists should bring their own bikes as the terrain is rough.

Bariloche is the perfect starting point for the region, stunningly set right inside Nahuel Huapi National Park, flanked by mighty mountains and on the shore of its own vast lake. The town has excellent tourist infrastructure, and a glut of chalet-style chocolate shops and Alpine fondue restaurants vestiges of the first European settlers. The place to stay is along the 25km of wooded shoreline west of the town, where we chose Aldebaran as most chic of the lakeside hotels. From here, enjoy all the activities in the magnificent mountains above you: ski at Cerro Catedral, trek the peaks for days without seeing civilization, go horse riding into the steppe, or take a boat trip deep into the fjords, even over the border into Chile. Take a cable car up Cerro Otto for a quick fix of breathtaking views, and then explore fine restaurants serving wild boar and locally smoked trout for a romantic dinner by the lake.
