Please view our latest post for updated information on the status of the Bariloche Airport
The weather forecast is looking good in Bariloche. Temperatures will be dropping into the teens and possibly even lower up at Cerro Catedral, and a good amount of snow is expected to fall over the next few days. Check out the latest forecast from snow-forecast.com:
In regards to the Puyehue Volcano situation, things have been getting better, but the ash cloud comes and goes with the wind currents. For this reason, the opening of the Bariloche Airport has been pushed back another week, currently scheduled for July 8. For those of you travelling to the area before this date, there are still many options to reach the city overland, by car or by bus. Many of our guests and guides have used the Via Bariloche or El Valle bus services in the past. It is a much cheaper option, typically costing about half the price of an air travel ticket. Another benefit of this travel option is the drive itself, taking in the views of the Argentine countryside, travelling through the pampas, while casually sipping wine and being served high quality meals all along the way. If you do choose to travel to Bariloche by bus, we highly recommend upgrading to the Cama Ejecutivo or Tutto Leto seats. It is well worth it, considering the length of the trip (20+ hours).
