Get to it by bus, then a 3 km walk by the Gutiérrez lakeside. You have a 15 minute walk through a forest to get to it and it is all quite worth it.

Easy and short hike. Nice small waterfall. After the waterfall we hiked about 35 mins up to the Mirador del Lago Gutierrez and enjoyed the view.

This beautiful waterfall is located near by Lake Gutierrez. It's an easy and short 30' walk from the parking to the fall. Surrounded by nature an by an spectacular view and lake. Definitely worth it!

Great outdoor activity for kids! In the same place we went to the Lago Gutierrez viewpoint, about 1 KM from the Cascada de los Duendes.

Best time to visit is winter or spring because there will be less visitors and you won't have to share the magic of the moment. It is a special place to enjoy Nature and even sit down and meditate for a while.

A three-meters high waterfall is was you get, a simple and ridiculous waterfall in the middle of the forest. Really does not worth it. No far, there is the mirador which is very nice and the playa mao (1h45 walking fast) which is nice too

This place is easy to get to by bus from Bariloche and is well worth the trip. Even the walk from the bus stop to the park entrance takes in some beautiful scenery, as you walk alongside the lake. The walks are really well sign...More
