Fantastic! I love it. It is great to see pictures from an area that isn't as famous, but just as spectacular (in its own way) as some of the places near by. Thanks.Mar 29, 2011 at 8:00 pm #1716913

Very cool. When were you guys there, before or after Patagonia? How did you get to or from Bariloche, bus or air?
Thanks for trip reports.Mar 30, 2011 at 7:31 am #1717112

Bariloche is generally considered to be at the northern end of Patagonia. The weather in Bariloche was fantastic – sunny days, cool nights, dry air, and strong winds were rare.
We traveled to Bariloche by bus. It'along overnight trip from Mendoza or Buenos Aires.Mar 31, 2011 at 5:03 am #1717655

thanks the photos guys. can't beat the view from Hostel 1004.
A HEADS UP FOR THOSE PLANNING TRIPS THROUGH ARG AND CHILE – wild camping anywhere in both Arg. and Chile is legal as long as you aren't directly in sight/in the way other people. I know that is very vague, but that comes straight from the mouthes of several police officers in both arg and chile. They basically said that if you are in the way and someone complains, it is possible that the police will ask you to leave. We frequently slept off the road in the woods, by a lake waiting for ferries, on beaches etc w/o a single problem over 2 years.
If you have spent much time down there you know that rules are much more flexibile (as well as exploitable by the police) in S. America. So take that with a grain of salt. Just b/c the police have stated that it is legal doesn't mean that you won't be hit up for money by enterprising policemen saying that you have broken the law (and if they say you did, you did) or asked to move from places that aren't in anyones direct view/way.
From Bariloche on South through both Chile and Argentina (basically all of what is considered Patagonia) the area is very safe, the people generally friendly and the popluation density almost 0. Its an ideal place to camp out.
