  • Incredible, sand-colored glacier, earth activity in progress
  • I went in June 2019. I would say it's not the best time to visit bariloche. It was raining whole day and I couldn't spend time watching this nature's beauty. They say due to snow the black glacier is turning white. The landscape is breathtaking. Simply majestic. Also, due to global warming the size of glacier is reducing year by year. It's possible to visit here my yourself by car but not by trekking. It is quite far from the city center. I would recommend to visit here once.
