DetailsBariloche is the gateway to Northern Patagonia and a renowned mountain resort, famous for its excellent skiing in winter and its majestic beauty in spring, summer and autumn. The Ranch is located 40 minutes away from the city, situated in the Nahuel Huapi National Park. The stunning and varied landscape is made up of pristine forests, numerous streams, waterfalls and a magnificent lake, surrounding mountains and unique wildlife such as the Patagonian hare, wild boar, puma, and the numerous fish like brown, rainbow and brook trout.
Since the ranch is located in a natural setting more than half an hour away from the city of Bariloche, we recommend this program for people who especially enjoy the contact with nature and can easily adapt to such environments.
It is recommended that you bring layers of clothing so you can be comfortable in a variety of temperatures. Warm clothing such as jackets, fleece, waterproof clothing, trousers, as well as swimwear, shirts and shorts should be brought along.

Country Information Argentina
|Argentina, the second largest country in South America and eighth largest in the world has much to offer the passerby and long-term tourist alike. Argentina’s continental area extends west along the Andes mountain range, east along the Atlantic Ocean and neighbors the countries of Paraguay and Bolivia to the North, Brazil and Uruguay to the Northeast and Chile to the West. The total Argentinean coast is about 2,400 miles long from north to south and 870 miles from east to west. The country is home to over 40 million people, with the capital of Buenos Aires and greater surrounding district entailing 13 million inhabitants. These numbers enlist Buenos Aires as one of the largest cities in the world.
One can find a huge variety of climates and landscapes from the north sub-tropical regions to the south sub-polar conditions. Further, the Andes Mountains stoically border two climatic regions of humid Argentina and aired Chile. Argentina offers such diverse landscapes at such an immense size, that any South American tourist could find happy haven in its territory. From the infamous Patagonia region, northern highlands, rainforests complete with the Iguazu Waterfalls, there are limitless adventures to explore!
In addition to landscape and weather variety, Argentina is also a country full of abundant natural resources, diversified agricultural sector and laden with cultural hot spots. The most well known hot spot is Buenos Aires located in the mid-eastern part of Argentina. Moreover, the country has a rich history of excellent literature, film production, famous theaters and musical fame (¡especially in rock and tango!).
For those cultural, site-seeing, city buffs, we highly recommended the Argentinean spring (September-November) and fall (March-May). The summer months (December- February) hold hot and humid weather good for lazy days by the pool or temperate sleeping nights in the mountains. Attention back-country adventurers, summer is surely the best time to discover a mild and accessible Patagonia. Finally, for the skiers, snow begins to fill back into the mountains and resorts open again around mid-June to October.
We are sure you will find the Argentinean people warm, friendly and pleased to welcome and introduce you to their beautiful country!
