Our first day in Bariloche, Argentina and we were on a quest: Conquer Cerro Campanario! Ok, honestly, it isn’t that high as far as mountains go – it sits at a mere 1,049 meters and the elevation gain during the hike is only a quarter of that – but even with the plentiful peaks around, the views from the top of Cerro Campanario are said to be the best in town.

There is a chairlift (for those not on a budget and willing to pay $11 for the short ride up), but we opted for the 270 meter non-stop-uphill climb. Good for the lungs, good for the bum. We made it to the summit in about 40 minutes, including a frequent stops for sneak previews of the vistas that were peeking out between the trees.

I’m not sure how the viewpoint from Cerro Campanario compares to the others except to say that this one is phenomenal. Several platforms combine to make up a 360-degree, mind-blowing view of the Rio Negro Province of Patagonia.
