Bariloche, Argentina

Nov 22 - Dec 20, 2024

This is the wild and pristine wilderness that dreams are made of. For the nature lovers, hikers, explorers, adrenaline seekers, and landscape-obsessed photographers, Bariloche will be the town that kicks off our obsession with Patagonia. We'll want to take it slow during the week to prep for the many weekend adventures that await us: paragliding, kayaking, overnight hikes to legendary summits, zip-lining, biking, road-tripping, and nature walks where it'll be hard to put our cameras down. Let's spend a month in the mountain air, letting nature's beauty take ahold of us.

Our 8 Favorite Adventures in Bariloche

Bariloche is filled with outdoor activities that you'll want to come back here for other seasons to experience them all. When spring and summer hit, these are our favorite things to do in Patagonia.

1. Stroll through town & by the lake

Bariloche has a cute town center with interesting architecture, quaint shops, and a lake with great views.

2. Test out your asado skills

Fire up the parilla, load on the meats, veggies, and provoleta, and pig out when its ready.

3. Bike to a beer with a view

Along the Circuito Chico, there's the Cervecería Patagonia for a cold one overlooking the lake.

4. Trek to the lagunas atop Cerro Catedral

Find Cerro Catedral a short bus ride away for a day hike to Refugio Frey and two beautiful lagunas.

5. Paraglide high above the tree tops

Fly like a bird while paragliding above Bariloche, you'll get the perfect view of lake Nahuel Huapi.

6. Stargaze while staying at a refugio

After a long day of trekking, cosy up as a Tribe, gaze at the brightest stars, and stay overnight at the summit.

7. Road trip through the Ruta de Siete Lagos

Filled with pullovers for the 7 lakes that sit between La Angostura and San Martin de los Andes, let's drive Rt. 40.

8. Kayak your way across the lake

Kayak to scenic waterfalls on Nahuel Huapi, the region's most prominent lake surrounded by gorgeous mountains.

Bariloche Unfiltered - 2022 with the Tribe 

Our Home in Patagonia

Melipal district

Cabin-style apartments

22 members

Up to 100 mbps


Wake up facing the stunning Nahuel Huapi Lake and the outline of the beautiful Andes mountains, this is the dream of every nature lover.  Our coliving home is a collection of cabin-style apartments in the same complex - trekking, hiking, climbing, kayaking, canoeing, horseback riding all close by. 

At the property, there's a communal living and dining room, an outdoor heated pool, and a BBQ area for group gatherings. There's also a separate coworking area onsite to easily log on during the week.

Good to Know

Bariloche is a very remote place and despite having a new second internet line installed, since the last time we visited, it is possible that the WiFi drops and may not be 100% reliable at all times as weather can impact it a lot. We'll have MiFis but good to have a personal hotspot backup just in case.

There's a public bus that runs every 20 minutes to Bariloche's center. If you buy a Subte card in Buenos Aires, bring it with you as it'll work for Bariloche's public transport too. 

Our property is in an ideal location. We are located a 10 min drive of Bariloche’s town center, and walking distance from grocery stores, pharmacies and some very tasty restaurants making this a super laid back Chapter for members who want to be close to food spots and outdoor adventure. 

Renting 2 cars for the Chapter makes it easier to get around town, and there are multiple weekend adventures a short drive away. There are multiple rental agencies in town to choose from.

What classifies a room as an upgrade?

We have three amenities categories we look at when selecting the upgrade rooms:

  • Functionality: desk, chair, kitchen, ensuite bathroom, privacy, AC, kitchenette or kitchen, fridge, walk-in closet or extra storage space etc.
  • How it looks: balcony, terrace, views, size of room, size of bed, windows/natural light, decor, living room or seating area, couch, coffee table, mirror etc.
  • Mixed: When possible, the room shares some of both of the above.
  • Securing the upgrade guarantees that you get the amenities you've paid for.
  • Upgrades that have not been secured will be assigned to members based on a number of different factors by the host (order of booking, circle level, etc.)
  • If all rooms have a particular amenity such as AC we do not offer upgrades for that particular amenity.
