INVAP S.E. is a company which developes space projects, and is the only company in South America that has worked with NASA (the US National Aeronautics and Space Administration) for complete space projects. In this field, the company has shown its proficiency as constructor of satellites, payloads and ground stations.

San Carlos de Bariloche city is located in the Nahuel Huapi National Park, at the foothills of the Andes and besides the Nahuel Huapi Lake. In its surroundings many mountains and lakes allow activities like trekking, sailing, fishing, etc. The city has numerous restaurants, hotels, hostels, chocolate shops, and an international airport with regular flights to Buenos Aires and Córdoba.

Getting There

If arriving from foreign countries, you will probably get to Ezeiza Int. Airport (EZE) in Buenos Aires city. At the moment you can get to San Carlos de Bariloche Airport (BRC) through this direct EZE-BRC flights:

  • 08:25-10:45   AR1692     on Mon, Tue, Thu, Fri, Sat, Sun

Another option is to take local transportation from EZE to Buenos Aires domestic flight Aeroparque Airport (AEP). A taxi can charge around $300 pesos (U$S 30) and cheaper buses leaves on a frequent basis. Despite it can be a 30 to 40 minutes drive without traffic, leave enough margin in your schedule as jams are frequent. Plenty of flights do AEP-BRC, among them:

  • 09:50-12:10   AR1672     on Mon, Tue, Wed, Fri, Sun
  • 14:45-17:05   AR1684     on Mon, Tue, Wed, Thu, Fri, Sat, Sun
  • 18:25-20:45   AR1682     on Mon, Tue, Wed, Thu, Fri, Sat, Sun

The same logic applies for the return trip: a few direct BRC to EZE flights are available (AR1685), but many to AEP Airport (AR1673, AR1689, AR1695, etc.).
