This activity is aimed at people with a good physical condition but not necessarily with experience in rowing. We have designed a program so that both beginners and experienced kayakers can enjoy our programs equally.
The Río de las Vueltas is born in the Lago del Desierto and, as its name indicates it, it descends towards the Viedma lake, making numerous curves through lenga forests and vertical walls. It is one of the most important rivers in the area and transports water from the melting of glaciers in the region. From our privileged position in the kayak and for more than 20 kilometers we can enjoy the best views of the Fitz Roy and its satellite needles, with an entirely different perspective from what can be seen from a path. Enjoy with us this unique and unforgettable experience.
10:30 am, presentation at the Fitz Roy Expediciones office and transportation to Laguna Condor Mountain Refuge (20 km).
Once we arrived our guide will give us a briefing about the activity. At the same time, he will help us with equipment testing, fitting the appropriate clothing and safety elements (neoprene suits, boots, and gloves, life jacket and helmet). We will also do some practices and techniques before approaching the river.
When we begin the descent, we will do more rowing practices in the Laguna Cóndor; and our guide will help us with any questions or queries we have. We will continue a unique and fun descent, where we will achieve unparalleled views of the Fitz Roy massif.
Arriving in El Chaltén (3:30 pm approximately), we will return to the Fitz Roy Expediciones office, where we can change clothes. End of services.
