Best time to visit Bariloche
The weather in Bariloche is fairly pleasant with no excessively extreme temperatures, making it ideal to visit at any time in the year. During the summer, accommodation and flight prices do go up though and your trip will become more expensive.
It would therefore be better to visit in autumn (March to May) or after the winter rains in spring (September to November). Both spring and autumn allow for great walks up the mountains like Cerro Catedral, or a boat trip on Nahuel Huapi Lake.
