5-day rock climbing trip in Bariloche


Join IFMGA certified mountain guide Pablo for this fantastic rock climbing program around Bariloche. Discover Frey, Mount Lopez or El Bolson, the choice is yours in this beautiful part of Patagonia, Argentina!



5 Days

Jan - Apr, Oct - Dec




* Discover the postcard beauty of Bariloche and its gorgeous alpine mountains

* Get vertical on world recognised orange granite rock - some of Argentina's best

* Join a certified and local guide who has an intimate knowledge of the area


Welcome to Bariloche, one of Patagonia’s most beautiful areas with its alpine mountains and sky blue lakes. Get ready to be excited because top quality orange granite rock awaits your exploration!

Situated about 40km from the Chilean border, this stunning town lies in the northwest of Argentina’s famous Patagonia region.

There is a great variety of climbing options available at short distance from the town. There is the wonderful area of Frey, mountain peaks like Cerro Lopez or Cerro Bella Vista and we could even venture to the well loved and beautiful El Bolson!

I learnt to climb in Bariloche when I was a child and had my first lessons in my local school. Being from the area, it gives me enormous pleasure to provide climbing trips here as I know all of Bariloche’s secrets!

The orange granite of the area is renowned throughout Argentina and also the world. There are wonderful fissures and other contortions that the rock has taken over the millenia and that create perfect rock climbing surfaces.

With such a vast and diverse area we have a great variety of different difficulty levels and graded climbs.

Sport climbing and multipitches are available, and if we decide to head east out of the city, it becomes dry and dessert like, providing us with another distinct option!

I organise my trips with great flexibility so that the routes and locations can be changed depending on weather conditions and on your preferences.

If this rock climbing trip in the stunning Bariloche of Argentina’s wonderful Patagonia region excites you, then sign up now! This is my back garden, I know it inside out and I can’t wait to share my passion with you!

Great experience ! Amazing views of Cerro Tronador and Bariloche city. The guide, Pablo was really good. The activity is very recommendable !! Thank you Pablo and Explore Share!



It was an amazing trip!! We had no experience in paragliding but the guides made us feel very very safe, they have a lot of experience and are very professionals. If you are in Bariloche, don't miss the chance to fly with them. And also the Explore-Share team was always willing to help. 10/10!!



The paragliding experience was unbelievable! Getting to see Bariloche and it's surrounding lake and mountains was breathtaking. I would definitely do this again. Pablo was an amazing guide. He was very knowledgable and had a lot of experience paragliding. He gave clear instructions on how to take off and made you feel safe every step of the away. Throughout the trip, he will capture pics and videos for you to take home. He was very friendly and always looked out for your best interest.
