Straddling the border of Argentina and Chile, Mount Tronador is an extinct volcano and the highest peak in the region. Its name translates to Mount Thunderous, a reference to the awesome sound which rings out when part of one of its seven glaciers breaks away. Along with its eco-system and magnificent views, the immensity of the mountain and its glacier valley makes it a popular place to visit from Bariloche.

The base of the mountain is reached via paved and gravel roads, which lead past ever-changing vegetation, lakes and rivers. Upon arrival there are a number of walks available, including a short walks to spectacular waterfalls (such as the Salto Las Nalcas) or another to a hanging glacier.
