Bariloche Day Trips to enjoy during your Spanish course
 
 
 
 
By Carlye Goldman, July 2019.
 
After you’ve worked hard taking Spanish lessons in Bariloche, and you are looking for more activities and places to explore, you can take a well-deserved day trip to see more of Patagonia, Argentina. There are a variety places you can explore and continue to practice your Spanish while doing so.
 
To begin, a trip worth taking during any time of the year, but you’ll experience a Narnia-like feel if you go in the winter is Cerro Tronador. Tronador is Bariloche’s tallest mountain, and gets its name from the sound breaking ice glaciers make. This black-glacier is undoubtedly one of the most breathtaking views you will witness, and is the perfect day trip to take after you finish your Spanish course week(s).

The next must-do day trip is a boat tour to Puerto Blest, where you can cruise across Nahuel Huapi Lake, and learn about the incredible National Park surrounding you. You can see the incredible green waters of Lagos Frías, as well as hike through the rainforest to Cascada de los Cántaros.

This next excursion you won’t want to miss is exploring the 7 lakes and the quaint town of San Martin de Los Andes. On your way there, you can stop in Villa La Angostura, a charming mountain village where you can browse artisan shops and eat traditional foods at a local restaurant.

El Camino de los Siete Lagos
 
These are just several of various day trips that you’ll definitely want to take advantage of after taking your week(s) Spanish lessons in Bariloche.
Here are a few more places among the multitude worth considering exploring:
 
El Bolsón
Colonia Suiza
Circuito Chico
Victoria Island
Cruce Andino: San Carlos de Bariloche to Puerto Varas
Bariloche Horseback Riding Tour
 
There is no better experience than to learn Spanish in Patagonia, Argentina, and explore the abundance of exquisite sites that it has to offer.
