Private transfer from Bariloche Airport to the hotel. Excursion in private service (with English-speaking guide) with soft walks, short hike to Cerro Campanario to get the best views of Bariloche and the area, short paths along the park and many different landscapes.

Day 2 - Full Day Trekking to Cerro Bellavista (or Cerro López, according to physical conditions)

Private transfer to the trail with the mountain guide to start trekking. The views of Tronador, Lanín, Osorno and other peaks are amazing from the summit.
The walk is relatively steep, goes across different kinds of vegetation; as we walk up, the vegetation changes due to the height. Once we are over the forest line, the trail starts to get a little steep, but will eventually take us to the summit. This adventure takes between 3 and 4 hours to get to the top, and between 2 or 3 to go down.
Hiking time: about 7 hours. Difficulty: medium with 700 m vertical drop
Overnight at Bariloche (Hotel Huemul, STD Room or similar).

Day 3 - Nahuel Huapi NP

Private transfer from the local Airport to Pampa Linda, a picturesque spot at the base of Mount Tronador (3,554 m). This is the highest mountain in the lake district and is one of the highlights of Nahuel Huapi National Park. We start early in the morning with the mountain guide to the hillsides of Mount Tronador to reach Refugio Otto Meiling, near Castaño Overo Glacier (almost 2,000 m). When we reach the timber line, we continue on along a ridge, with every minute gaining altitude and panorama, until almost at the snow line, you reach the Refugio. The view from the hut which is surrounded by glaciers is just marvelous: you can see the summit of the mountain as well as uncountable other mountains and lakes in a unique landscape. 

Back down to Pampa Linda on the same way.
Overnight at Hostería Pampa Linda on half board.
