CANOEING - ROWING - KAYAKING IN PATAGONIA


Rapids, difficult nooks, extensive water courses. Ideal conditions for those who like to feel the adrenaline of letting themselves go by the strength of the current or fighting against it. Kayaking is a very popular sport in Patagonia. This is where the longest boat race in the world is held and some of the country's best rowers have been born.

Recommended places

Negro river
It is along this water course, the greatest in Patagonia, that the longest kayak race in the world is held. Anyway, you do not need to compete to sail its waters. Anybody, along its course, between Neuquén and Viedma, can "throw" the paddles to soar or let himself go with the current.

Aluminé
The Ruca Choroi and Aluminé rivers provide strong rapids, with nooks for the most daring only. Those who want to experience the adventure of a ride on a kayak for the first time also have their place here: excursions with guide and basic equipment are offered.

Puerto Deseado: Deseado Estuary
A stretch of sea that enters 40 kilometers along a river. Some people say it is one of the most beautiful natural formations in America. Apart from Trekking and sailing sports, the star sport is, without any doubt, kayaking.

Dique Ameghino, 140 kilometers from Trelew
Green waters framed by irregular reddish hills are the natural scenario for rafting and rowing.




CANOEING - ROWING - KAYAKING IN BARILOCHE


Bariloche Adventure Travel & Tours...

Patagonia Pictures - KAYAK IN FRIAS RIVER - Adventure Travel in PatagoniaPatagonia possesses fabulous rivers that are always ready to host the eager kayaker. This addictive sport finds its ideal framework in Bariloche, where the beauty of the wilderness, wildflowers and seasonally changing hues of the forest provide extra delights.

The adventures offered by this discipline and its excursions enable the living of this wonderful natural environment to the full. The rivers are of varying difficulty levels, each of them having a definite personality and harboring its hidden secrets.

Patagonia Pictures - KAYAK IN LAKE NAHUEL HUAPI - Adventure Travel in Patagonia You can rent canoes or kayaks on the Nahuel Huapi lakeside jetties. There are different organized excursions with itineraries for all levels of expertise in the rivers and lakes of the area, while enjoying spectacular scenery.

The rivers where this sport is practiced are:

Manso
FromVillegas to Primera Pasarela (First Footbridge). Navigable year-round with rapids up to class 2.

Foyel and Manso
Offers class 3 and 4 rapids. These rivers take you to the Argentine-Chilean border.

You can also get to inaccessible areas by making kayaking trips on lake Nahuel Huapi.

As well as the excursions, courses are given for beginners and advanced kayakers on:
  • Limay River (class II)
  • Foyel River (class II)
  • Traful River (class III)
  • Manso Inferior River (class II - III)
  • Manso Medio River (class III - IV)
  • Villegas River (class IV)
  • Manso River - Los Alerces Cascade (class V)

RAFTING
Patagonia Pictures - RAFTING IN MANSO RIVER - Adventure Travel in PatagoniaThis consists of navigating mountain watercourses downstream in inflatable boats. It is therefore practiced only in the places where conditions are right. Obviously, every river is different, so we have an enormous choice of rivers to raft on, each with its own special attractions and difficulty level.

In Argentina the international scale of navigation difficulty is used, grading the rivers in order of increasing difficulty from I to VI.

When we descend the Nahuel Huapi National Park rivers, we visit places of incomparable beauty, such as the interminable Valdivian forests, deep canyons of basaltic lava rock and the enormous glacial valleys that cut through the heart of the Cordillera de los Andes. On each of these routes, one can observe the many species of flora and fauna that populate the exciting immensity of Patagonia.


DUCKIES
These are inflatable kayaks enabling beginners to discover the thrills of the sport. They offer stability, maneuverability and safety, since they can be easily righted if they overturn, resuming the descent of the river.
Normally this activity is carried out under the supervision of professional guides who look out for safety while accompanying the kayakers.


CANYONING
Patagonia Pictures - CANYONING IN MANSO RIVER - Adventure Travel in Patagonia This is a new mode of adventure tourism imported from the Alps. It is navigating rivers flowing through canyons, that possess pools and rapids, combining different disciplines such as rafting, climbing and white water swimming, this last using the body for flotation. This may include using natural diving pools, walking on pebbles and Tyrolean and waterfall rappelling.

Patagonia Pictures - CANYONING IN MANSO RIVER - Adventure Travel in Patagonia It is especially exciting because of its variety, but requires certain precautions and the choice of the right level of descent. During one of these excursions you walk in rock formations, swim in turbulent waters, skin dive in natural pools and overcome vertical waterfalls.

The features of our rivers and the beauty of their natural setting give us the ideal framework to stage this type of adventure.

Places where it is practiced:
  • Casa de Piedra Stream
  • Manso River
  • Cajón del Río Azul (Azul River Ravine)
  • "El Cravión"
  • El Bolsón
Gear used for this activity: helmet, life jacket, neoprene rubber suit and harness.

Requirements: being fit and knowing how to swim.


SEA KAYAKING
This activity enables us to discover unique areas of Patagonia and access the lakes, huge freshwater storage areas for the meltwater of ancient glaciers. The immensity of this part of the planet offers a great range of itineraries, and using the kayak opens access to places not otherwise accessible. Sea Kayaking is a sport of low physical demands and accessible to all sportsmen.

Excursions:
  • Lake Mascardi - Lake Steffen
  • Lake Steffen - Villegas River
  • Villa Los Coihues (Lake Gutiérrez) - Villa Catedral
  • Pérez Rosales Pass - Peulla (Crossing to Chile)



CANOEING - ROWING - KAYAKING IN USHUAIA - TIERRA DEL FUEGO


Ushuaia - Tierra del Fuego Adventure Travel & Tours...

For those people who prefer visiting Tierra del Fuego National Park in an original way, they can choose to enter the park in reliable rain-equipped canoes and, if they wish so, they may also count on the assistance of specialized tourist guides. It is a unique way to visit the unforgettable Fueguian landscapes, just like the Yámana aborigines -the early sailors that settled in the area- used to travel. The tour can last between one and two hours.
