This mountain lodge, with its view offer the most beautiful panoramic view of Lake Nahuel Huapi and surrounding area. Cerro López was named by Francis P. Moreno as a tribute to the author of the National Anthem, Vicente López y Planes.

The López shelter is owned by Carlos Sonntag, one of the best mountain guides in the town who was licensee of the old shelter destroyed by an avalanche. It is the largest and comfort refuge of all who are in the city of Bariloche. It has two large bedrooms, a dining room and bathrooms with running water. Closed only in the winter months.

Of note is the interesting and very easy trip to "La Hoya" (1850) and to the "Pico Turista" (2050 m) that can be made from this shelter. La Hoya, a half hour's walk, has the distinction of holding snow until the summer months, being a very striking attraction for tourists and campers.
