What people think about Bariloche

“This place is full of shocking beauty. Bariloche, likely the most well-known Argentine Patagonian outpost, has mountains and subsequent vistas with a scale that makes the Rockies or the Alps look almost fragile. The terrain here is huge not only in height but also in space occupation, and, with the added bonus of wide dabbles of lakes cutting through the volume, the effect is only amplified by the resulting interplay of light, reflection, and depth perception.”
