Bariloche Holidays

Switzerland of the Andes

Called the 'Switzerland of the Andes', Bariloche is known for three things: stunning natural scenery, skiing, and chocolate. We love combining all three on our holiday in Bariloche. Get out into the magnificent, snow-capped mountains for a day of skiing down the powdery alpine slopes, then head back into Bariloche to the quaint chocolate stores that dot every street. Here we love sitting back in a rough-hewn, wooden chair as we sip a steaming cup of sweet hot chocolate.
