Discovering Bariloche from the Road: Your Complete Car Rental Guide

San Carlos de Bariloche, affectionately known as Bariloche, is a city nestled in the Andes' foothills, surrounded by glacial lakes and snow-peaked mountains. As the gateway to Argentina's Patagonia region, Bariloche beckons with its Swiss alpine-style architecture and its famous chocolate shops. Whether you're drawn to its ski slopes, hiking trails, or serene lakes, renting a car from Bariloche Airport lets you explore this gem at your own pace. Let’s set the wheels in motion with this comprehensive guide.

Benefits of Renting a Car in Bariloche:

  1. Mountainous Exploration: With its proximity to the Andes, a car allows you to traverse mountainous terrains and visit secluded spots.
  2. Convenience: Eliminate waiting times and restrictions of public transport. Chart your journey as you please.
  3. Scenic Drives: Drive through some of the most picturesque routes Argentina offers, like the Circuito Chico or the Road of the Seven Lakes.

Bariloche Airport (BRC):

  • Distance to City Center: Teniente Luis Candelaria International Airport is approximately 13 km from Bariloche's city center. A straightforward drive via RN40 and Av. Exequiel Bustillo takes about 20 minutes.

Things to Consider When Renting:

  1. Driving License: Along with your domestic license, an International Driving Permit is recommended for international travelers.
  2. Insurance: Considering the mountainous terrain, opt for comprehensive insurance to safeguard against any eventualities.
  3. Vehicle Type: If you plan to explore rugged terrains or snowy areas, consider renting an SUV or a vehicle with four-wheel drive.

Driving in Bariloche: Tips and Customs:

  1. Mountain Driving: The region's hilly terrain requires drivers to be cautious, especially around curves. Always use low gears when descending.
  2. Weather Conditions: Snow and rain can make roads slippery. Always check the weather forecast and be prepared for sudden changes.
  3. Parking: The city center can be busy, especially during peak tourist seasons. Look for designated parking zones or opt for hotel accommodations that offer parking facilities.

Recommended Attractions & Routes:

  1. Circuito Chico: A 60 km loop starting from Bariloche that offers panoramic views, historical sites, and artisanal breweries. Allow 3-4 hours, considering stops.
  2. Camino de los Siete Lagos (Road of the Seven Lakes): Connecting Bariloche to San Martín de los Andes, this 110 km stretch is a visual treat with its cascading waterfalls, dense forests, and shimmering lakes.
  3. Cerro Otto: Just a 15-minute drive from the city center. Take the cable car to the top for mesmerizing views of the region.
  4. Cerro Catedral: Around 20 km from Bariloche, it's the most famous ski resort in South America. Even in non-ski seasons, its landscapes are breathtaking.

Vehicle Type & Weather Considerations:

  1. SUV: The undulating terrains and potential snowfalls make SUVs a popular choice in Bariloche.
  2. Compact Cars: Suitable for city drives and short distances. Ensure they're equipped for variable weather conditions.
  3. Weather: Bariloche's weather can change rapidly. If visiting during the winter months (June to August), ensure the vehicle is snow-ready.

First-Time Visitor Tips:

  1. Stay Alert: Some roads, especially mountainous ones, can be narrow with sharp turns. Drive slowly and be attentive.
  2. Fuel Up: While gas stations are available, the distances between them can be significant in rural areas. Always keep the tank at least half full.
  3. Local Delights: Bariloche is famous for its chocolates. Park your car and take a leisurely walk along Mitre Street, trying out chocolate samples from various stores.

Conclusion: Bariloche, with its fusion of natural beauty and cultural richness, promises an unmatched driving experience. Renting a car lets you curate your adventure, ensuring every twist and turn reveals a new wonder. With the right preparations and a spirit of adventure, the open roads of Bariloche await your journey.
