Arrival and first day at La Montaña

Arrival to Bariloche

We know our students need information before arrival, so we offer support from their first contact with our staff until they leave the city as well as 24/7 emergency support. These are the most frequently asked questions:

What are the recommended transportations to get from the airport to town center?

Can someone pick me up at the aiport?
Yes. We can arrange the transfer with a private car before your arrival. One person will be waiting for you at arrival gate holding a sign with your name. This driver will have all your details as well as the information about your accommodation. For students taking 2 or more weeks of lessons, this service is free, otherwise, the cost is a U$30 add on.
Can I take a Public Bus?
Yes. Public buses run during the day from the airport to the city. You can check at your arrival what time is the next service. This bus will leave you in town center and you need a prepaid card which you can get at any kiosk at the airport.
During high season, some private shuttle bus offer services every hour from the airport to town center.
