Campanario Hill Chairlift

An amusing tour featuring a wonderful panoramic sight from the heights.

Visitors should by no means have a fear of heights but let themselves be carried away by this wonderful chairlift tour.
The journey to the top of Campanario Hill takes seven minutes. It is slow and it goes through a very natural tunnel among the huge canopies.

Whether cold, rainy or hot, the weather conditions in Bariloche are not important. Campanario Hill provides the possibility of watching famous Lake Nahuel Huapi, as well other local sights, in full splendor.

It is important to point out that there are explanatory signs that help visitors spot and make out the various native and exotic species.

Once on the chairlift, the green hues of nature almost dazzled us. The view was breathtaking all the way up to the top. As we got off the chairlift, we had to pay much attention.

Once at the summit, the view was impressive. Amazing. We spotted Mount López and the small villages in the surroundings. Green became more and more intense and the water bodies appear all around.

Most visitors cannot help taking photographs of the cypress forests that “hold up” the mountain. Others prefer to get away from the people and enjoy the view in silence. The vastness is powerfully present all around.

To end the tour, a spectacular coffee-shop invited us to have a delicious drink as we continued beholding the majestic scenery caught from the top of Campanario Hill in awe.

Nothing remains of the ashy grey powder and the pumice stone that invaded the sky and soil of Bariloche and created uncertainty and fear both in local denizens and visitors.
