Breakaway Backpacker: Biking Circuito Chico in Bariloche, Argentina

Author: , March 8th, 2015

Jaime Davila - ArgentinaI’ll be honest with you I had never actually heard of Bariloche until I got there. Even then I had no clue what I was going to do when I got there. I just knew that I needed to get there because it was a nice town/city with a lot of hikes to do and it’s a perfect place to get to El Chalten from.

My goal was to make my way down to the Ushuaia “FIN DEL MUNDO” (“END OF THE WORLD”) the southernmost city in the world overland. I was already slowly making my way down there. I had gone from Santiago to Pucon to Puerto Varas and now crossed the border to Argentina to get to Bariloche and from there would carry on.

When I arrived to Bariloche I did what I normally do when I arrive in a place I have no clue what I am going to do. I asked the receptionist for a map and what she recommend for me to see and do. She let me know that I had to go hike Cerro Campanario and also rent a bike and do the Circuito Chico. I thought okay I will start with that. I had a arrived late in the afternoon so decided to leave those two things for the following day. The next morning I woke up went to the grocery store to buy my lunch and went directly to the bus to get down there.
