Lago Steffen, San Carlos de Bariloche

  • We were at the campsite with lake Steffen coast, not camping spending the day on two occasions, very friendly attention, although they do not have much variety of food, you have to try to take it all, the place is very spacious and open and you can take advantage of renting Kayacs, horses, hiking, hiking, very quiet trekking.
