Rafting allows you to experience landscapes of incredible beauty, far from roads and trails. Both in Chile and in Argentina you cross landscapes and rivers which are completely untouched. Rafting is an activity suitable for everyone, for enjoying nature in complete safety while having fun at the same time.

Here I propose some examples of possible rafting excursions, though many others are available.

| Duration 1 day - 2 hour of rafting / option Kayak. Niveau 3/4 +

|The Juramento River canyon outlines a wild scenery surrounded by geologic formations, fossil finds and dinosaur footprints. Going down its rapids on a raft is a funny way to discover this place. Feeling like getting into the water and enjoying the sun, we set out in the car that Constanza, from Marina Turismo, had lent us heading for the Cabra Corral dam. The people from Salta Rafting were waiting for us there to tour down the Juramento River. We knew that the reservoir dam opened its gates and temporarily increased the volume of the river, which then becomes a grade III water course for the practice of rafting or kayaking.

Patagonia in all seasons menu. For example, according to the climate, from Bariloche, in Patagonia Argentina, it is possible to go to Puerto Montt, in Chile, crossing successively three lakes by boat, as did the Jesuits and the first German settlers. I offer a tour that leads to the Pacific Ocean. It is quite long, but the beauty of the sites - forests, volcanoes and crystalline lakes - is such that it is worth to be carried. The Argentine side, cross the west arm of Nahuel Huapi and Lake Puerto Alegre and, the chilen side, Lake Todos los Santos. Moving from one lake to another by bus. This tour is feasible in all seasons, but in winter, it takes two days to reach Puerto Montt, stopping for one night at Peulla. We returned to Bariloche by air or by the same way, after a night in Puerto Montt. Borispatagonia is also responsible for visas to go to Chile and to book hotels. In Patagonia, winter and summer are tourist seasons. In summer, besides explore the surrounding, many activities are available: climbing, torrent fishing, sailing, horseback riding, hiking, rides, visits to Aciendas... In winter, the main activity is, of course, skiing, especially in July and August on the side of the Andes, but not only: snowshoe hikes, thematic tours, many walks to admire the beauty of Patagonia Argentina and Chile in this season, due a unique light, the warmth of the people of Patagonia... Just to talk about, I get goose bumps!
