The experience starts when the passengers from EL CHALTÉN RAFTING arrive to our headquarters located in El Chalten. After welcoming them and an explanation about the area we are in, visitors are given the necessary rafting equipment: waterproof and dry suit, boots, and life jackets. Once everyone is ready, they are taken with our guides to the river side where they receive information about rafting techniques and safety measures and practice them. Now, they are certainly ready to go! The first four kilometers have calm and quiet water with the Fitz Roy at your back, ideal to get in touch with the river and practice the techniques that are going to be used later. Afterwards, we go over a deep ravine where we are able to enjoy a series of rapids for 8 Km. The speed ok the river keeps you alert up to the last 2 Km where we return to calm water. Another rhythm to meet Patagonia.
For those ones who do not have the possibility of staying in El Chaltén, we offer making the Rio de las Vueltas RAFTING tour, departing from El Calafate at 7.30 a.m and returning at about 8.30 p.m.
The Full Day Program starts with the picking up at the Calafate Hotels, then the trip (220 Km) to El Chaltén arriving at about 11 a.m to the meeting point with our guides.
After the adventure in the river a free lunch box is given in our headquarters.
