The Gaucho Families from Bariloche, Argentina

Community-based tourism in Bariloche
Bariloche is a city located between ancient forests, snow covered mountains and crystalline lakes, in the province of Río Negro, #Argentina. This is a postcard of #Patagonia. A host city par excellence, framed by some of the most important natural beauties of the country.
The Nahuel Huapi National Park is 1680 km from the city of Buenos Aires. #Bariloche is one of the most intense and incredible places in Argentina. You will discover breathtaking views, lakes, streams, thawing rivers and mountains. You will enjoy the pure air, and the landscapes that dye the color of each season. The blossoming of the sunshine of the summer, the ocher rainbow of the autumn, the explosion of colours in spring and the bright white mantle that covers the winters.
This is a rare opportunity to try Bariloche in a different way, with the help of the local communities who know the region as no one else. Avoid the expected of Patagonia and dive into this community-based experience.
Being one of the top destinations in South America for snow skiing, Bariloche grew at a fast pace leaving behind part of the local history, culture and living habits of original communities. Visiting this region through local’s eyes is a rare chance to combine the natural attractions with the real Argentine rural culture of the Andes.

The rural life
The gauchos of this region have a very close relation with animals, with these being an important part of the rural life. Take the chance to ride horses along the natural areas, crossing some stretches of water and getting impressive views of the area.
