4 Days

Jan - May, Nov, Dec


Bariloche and its waters give us unbelievable trails and landscapes to enjoy the best mountain activities. Laguna Azul, Creton and Ilon are some of them.

So that I am inviting you to this 4-day trekking expedition among the perfect and most imposing lakes of Bariloche, in the Patagonia Argentina. For more details, here you have the full itinerary:


The hike of the first day will take us about six hours. During the trail, we visit the Rio Manso which we will cross by a bridge, entering to a fantastic forest. It is known as “Bosque de Ñires” and its variety of animal, vegetation and rock species will make this trekking much more interesting. Finally, we reach to the beautiful Laguna Azul.


Here we start the ascent. This trekking adventure will take us about 6 hours. We will hike up the slopes of the lake and once we advance some meters we will enjoy a magnificent viewpoint. When we reach to Laguna Creton a fresh water rain will welcome us.


We will continue hiking until we find the Cerro Punta Negra at 2.166 meters of height. After that, without going out of our way, we will find Cerro Tronador and Cerro Capitan, from whose edge we will enjoy a privileged sight of the famous Nahuel Huapi Lake. By the end of the day and after 5 or 6 hours of trekking we get to Laguna Ilon, the third lake of this adventure by the crystalline waters of Bariloche.


In our fourth and last day, if weather conditions help, we can swim in Laguna Ilon, the warmest waters of the three lakes. After that, we will start the return by an irregular trail that turns into a flatter one after crossing the river. They are the final moments of this amazing trip around the best Bariloche waters.

If you love the mixture between mountains and lakes, this trip is for you. And in that case I will be your guide! Contact me as soon as you can. You won’t regret!

I was looking for a local guide for a hike I was planning and came across Explore-Share. They seemed to have good reviews and so decided to give them a try. The experience was very positive and completely happy with their service. I will be using them again for next trip.



Easy to set up and find the perfect trip. Informative site that is easy to use. Guides are all great to work with and communicate all arrangements needed. As simple as can be!



Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.
