Half Day Small Circuit & Campanario Hill

The tour starts in Bariloche City, riding down Ezequiel Bustillo Avenue: a winding paved road along the shore of Lake Nahuel Huapi. At km 8, it comes to Playa Bonita, offering views of Huemul Island, a Historical, Ecological and Tourist Reserve. The flora of the region is present in cypress trees and deciduous forests (maitenes, coihues and ñires), while in summer season the bushes of musk roses, raspberries and wild flowers give colour to the landscape. Continuing along this road for another 10 km the tour arrives at Campanario Hill. A chairlift takes visitors to the top of the hill (1,050 m) to enjoy one of the most stunning views of this region. There is a coffee shop at its top where to taste the delicious local pastries.

Back on Bustillo Avenue the tour enters San Pedro Peninsula at km 20 to visit its viewpoint, there you can pay a visit to the Virgin's Grotto and San Eduardo Chapel and observe the Llao Llao Hotel in the distance. Then it continues to Pañuelo Port, at km 25, the departing point for many lake tours. After passing by Lake Escondido, leaving the peninsula behind, at km 33 the road passes by the bridge over Angostura Stream and comes to a panoramic point at km 40 to observe Lake Moreno and Llao Llao Peninsula in all its splendour.
