Cerro Otto Review
For an aerial view of the area around Bariloche, don't miss Cerro Otto (Mt. Otto; 4,608 feet). The ride to the top in a little red gondola takes about 12 minutes. The cable car is owned by Teleférico Cerro Otto, and all proceeds go to local hospitals. The mountain is 5 km (3 mi) west of town; a free shuttle bus leaves from the corner of Mitre and Villegas, and Perito Moreno and Independencia. You can also hike or mountain bike to the top, or drive 8 km (5 mi) up a gravel road from Bariloche. In winter, cross-country skis and sleds are for rent at the cafeteria. In summer, hiking and mountain biking are the main activities. There is a revolving restaurant on the summit. For a real thrill, try soaring in a paraplane out over the lake with the condors. Call for information (2944/441–035) on schedules and sled or ski rentals.
