Facts: The name Bariloche comes from the Marpuche (native people) word Vuriloche meaning "people from behind the mountain" (furi = behind, che = people). The Vuriloche pass was used by the Mapuches to cross the Andes and was kept secret from the European priests for a long time. Settled primarily by Austrians and Germans about 1895, San Carlos de Bariloche has the appearance of an alpine town. It is filled with young people from Europe and Argentina on vacation.

One of the highlights of the stop was the rafting trip we took on the Rio Manso river (level III and IV water)!  This was my first time and Darcy second (many years ago) what fun! The trip was about a 2 hour drive to the river which runs west into Chile, 3 hours on the water, lunch and then 2 hours back to the city.  The trip included all equipment and a guide on the raft of 8 of us. We had 3 rafts running down the river at the same time.  We also had a chance to jump into the river and swim down, it was so much fun.
