Highlights of Kayaking Rio De Las Vueltas

This activity will allow you to connect in a different way with the Patagonian landscape that El Chalten offers us.

Charged with emotion we will explore the deep waters of the Rio de las Vueltas through a kayak trip accompanied by expert guides. 

The wonderful Rio de las Vueltas starts at Lago Del Desierto and descends towards Lago Viedma making numerous curves through lush lenga forests and rocky walls,  in a total extension of 70 km from where we will obtain privileged views of Mount Fitz Roy and its slabs.

Kayaking down the river  is designed for beginners and experienced kayakers and you can choose between the option of kayaking full day or half day.
