For our final day in Patagonia, we decided to take one of the treks up in the mountains behind Bariloche. It looked as if the top of the mountains were shrouded in cloud but no one advised us against it and, from the ground, it was impossible to tell both how bad it was and whether the trail was up in the clouds or on the ridge line below them.

We arrive in fabled Bariloche, Argentinian Lake District, mid-afternoon, a short 7.5 hour bus ride from Puerto Montt, Chile. A popular ski resort with German heritage it's not what we expected - it's not flat, not so cute, with its multi-story apartment blocks and hills rather than a flat little town with coloured one and two-story buildings.
