From Viedma to Bariloche on the Patagonian Train

From the sea to the mountain range, the Patagonian Train has enormous potential in the Rionegrina region as a means of communication and tourist attraction.

The Patagonian Train crosses the Patagonian steppe from the sea to the mountain range. It has a single weekly frequency starting on Fridays from Viedma and return from Bariloche on Sundays. It is an amazing experience to make the journey between both cities and the different intermediate stops.


Magnificent landscapes on the Patagonian steppe
The Patagonian Train has been transformed in recent years given the growth of seaside villas such as Las Grutas or other destinations on the Rionegrin coast, whose cliffs make up the wedges of the plateau that enter the sea. The San Matías Gulf encloses cities such as San Antonio Oeste, Puerto de San Antonio Este and Las Grutas, which are easier to reach by train from other steppe locations. The same goes for the Andean head.

The company Tren Patagónico provides the basic service as a means of communication between the towns located on the railway line. The context of the pandemic suspended the activities of the Patagonian railway, so the return in early 2021 was highly anticipated to enjoy this journey like no other again. The train departs from Viedma, borders the Somuncurá Plateau, dives into the valleys of Sierra Colorada, crosses the steppe, runs between the landscapes and villages of the Southern Line, the chacras and the natural amphitheaters, until arriving in the city lying on the blue of the Nahuel Huapi.

The whole region offers great appeal in terms of fauna and flora and magnificent landscapes. The inhabitants of the Southern Line have enormous cultural strengths and belonging to the land, so there is also a sense of fighting spirit that train travelers can observe and perceive on the route. In each town possibilities and walks are opened, especially rural tourism as an alternative to rest and enjoy with family.

The service stands out in the attention of the staff and the options of dining car, car transport and comfortable cabins, in addition to the first classes and polish more classic with spacious seating and central heating. Tickets are purchased through the website and reservation must be made in advance.
