Expo 2027 Bariloche will be located on National Route 40, Argentina’s longest tourist route, which runs across the most attractive and important tourist regions of Argentina and runs parallel to the Andes mountain range from south to north.
Starting in Santa Cruz, the route covers 5,194 km. runs through 21 national parks, 18 important rivers, connects 27 mountain passes and ascends at km 4,601 in Salta, almost 5,000 m above sea level, making it the highest road in America.
Expo 2027 Bariloche will be held by the side of this route, outlining a new large-scale node of local, regional and national relevance in the middle of the Patagonian steppe, 450,000 m2 dedicated to exhibition spaces and services located in a district of more than 320 hectares connected to industrial and business activities, thus making the whole area a landmark accelerator of the development of the City of Bariloche.
The Expo features direct and nearby routes to the international airport, the INVAP —the applied research institute—, to the National University of Río Negro, the City’s central area, and also to its most relevant geographical and natural sites, the Nahuel Huapi Lake, and the imposing snow-capped mountains of the Andes.
