Cerro Otto is located within Nahuel Huapi National Park, by the Nahuel Huapi Lake on the east side. It has a height of 1405 masl. It is named after Otto Goedecke, one of the first pioneers who had his farm in the mountain slopes, in the Melipal region.

It receives a great amount of tourists along the year since it offers one of the most magnificent panoramic views.

Fun, adventure, culture and nature for everyone. In winter it is possible to slide down the mountain on sleds or hike with snow shoes through the forest. In summer there is Otto Kart, a colorful inflatable slide and hiking. All year round there is a disco, micro-cinema, an art gallery and a revolving coffee shop.


Teleferico and coffee shop

This modern cable car lifts passengers from the lower station (2700 feet above sea level) to the upper station, to the upper station, located at the top of Cerro Otto (over 3,000 ft.). At speeds of 10 ft per second it can carry some 500 passengers per hour. On top, the restaurant rotates 360 degrees every 20 min. The passenger meanwhile takes pleasure viewing the fascinating scenery.

A unique place for a variety of reasons. Ideal for everyone at anytime of the year.


  • Hiking with snow shoes (winter)
    The experience of hiking with snow shoes in winter in like no other. Feeling the silence of the Lenga forest (a native species that grows only above 3300 feet) allows one deep contact with nature. You are accompanied by a professional guide who can reveal the secrets and lead you to spectacular views only offered from Mount Otto.

  • Sledding runs (winter)
    Three exciting toboggan runs are available in the vicinity of the revolving restaurant. They offer differing degrees of difficulty. Here, both children and adults slide secure and protected on a fluffy white slope under the watchful eye of the ski patrol. Weather conditions permitting, the resort has artificial snow making equipment to be used when needed to insure the best possible conditions.
    Otto Kart (summer).

  • Otto Kart (Summer)
    This design, similar to those used in Europe, works like a traditional toboggan but the sled is inflatable and is especially designed for this activity. The track is lined with a synthetic material that guarantees smooth sledding allowing you to enjoy the ride at a safe speed.

  • Otto Kart (Summer)
    For those who enjoy walking and viewing the beautiful scenery, there are many trails through the ancient forest. This activity is with the aid of a local mountain guide.

Nature lovers will find many reasons to spend an incomparable day. This impressive place is spectacular in both summer and winter.
