Description

Join me on this day great trek to the Cerro Bella Vista, just 16 kilometers from the city of Bariloche, and enjoy amazing 360º views over mountains, lakes and rivers from the summit!

Cerro Bella Vista is a 1750-meter peak, lying between the well-known Cerro Catedral and Cerro Goye. Our hike begins at Tambo Baez, following the trail towards the Jakob Refuge. Then, after a 20-minute hike, we will leave that trail and trek along the Cerro Bella Vista trail.

Bear in mind this hike may be physically demanding as most of the trail follows a constant incline. The path takes us through a beautiful beech forest, and if you come in spring, you may enjoy the blossoming of Amancay plants along the way to the summit of Bella Vista.

We will take some time to rest in the forest, enjoying a picnic, with plenty of time to take pictures and recover energy to reach the summit. We leave behind the beech trees and the forest and continue our way through the summit ridge for about 40 minutes, until we get to the top of the mountain, enjoying spectacular views over lakes and mountains!

It is also possible to continue our trek, following a ridge to the  summit of Cerro Goye, descending to Colonia Suiza for an handcrafted beer.

If you want to join me on this great day trek, just book your place! Contact me and let’s start planning your ascent to Cerro Bella Vista.

About the guide

I was born in Buenos Aires, where my passion for travel and the mountains started to grow. This motivated me from a young age to explore the Andes
Mountain Range and almost all of Latin America, through treks, trips,
climbs and expeditions to discover new places and challenges.

I am a certified EPGAMT. My first job as a guide was at Los Glaciares National Park (El Chaltén – Santa Cruz). After that, I worked in the Aconcagua Province Park (Mendoza), Lanín National Park
(Neuquén) and Nahuel Huapi National Park (Río Negro), among other
places.

During the winter season, I am a ski instructor (certified by AADIDES ) and I have worked in Cerro Catedral since 2007.

In my free time, I enjoy backcountry skiing around the Argentinian and
Chilean Patagonia. I also enjoy skiing and spending time with my kids.
