Description

In the town of El Chalten, Santa Cruz, we found the Rio de Las Vueltas which originates at Lake Desert to 506 meters above the sea. Its most important tributaries are the Rio Electric, and the Rio Fitz Roy both glacial (Marconi Glacier and Glacier Torre respectively). 

By the morphology of the river and the unique beauty of the place, you will be able to enjoy the experience of rafting in this area. In addition, you will have a previous talk about technique and safety in this activity. 

Itinerary

Meeting in El Chalten and Rafting Experience

The tour will take place in the Rio de Las Vueltas, with daily departures at 10 AM and 3 PM from Mil Outdoor offices in El Chalten. There, you will be provided with the appropriate equipment, and be transported to the entrance of the river. This is where technical and safety procedures are reviewed.

The first zone will consist of 6 kilometres of calm and curving waters with views of Fitz Roy: An ideal area to get used to the raft and to practice rowing techniques. Then, the second area will go over a canyon. After the initial rapid, we will find a succession of rapids over a 9 kilometres stretch. Towards the end of our excursion we will run into a 1 kilometre long area of calm water. The tour will end here, just in time for board our vehicle and travel back to El Chaltén.
