This is a unique experience in Bariloche. You arrive at the restaurant by snowmobiles and have a delicious cheese fondue. In my opinion they should also offer the meat fondue as an option.

It's not cheap, but it's worth it. The tour starts at Arelauquen's Refugio Golf Bar with wine, beer, soda, water, cheese and more. After some safety instructions, we board jeeps 4x4 that go up the mountain where the snowmobiles are waiting for us. From there...More

This tour was nice, but it didn't worth it. The ride in the motorcycle was very short. The restaurant was beautiful and the staff was friendly, but the fondue wasn't well done. It was very liquid and though they changed it, it was still the...More
