RAFTING IN EL CHALTÉN
Option 1 Departure from El Chaltén
The experience starts when the passengers arrive to our head- quarters located in El Chalten, visitors are given the necessary rafting equipment and they are taken with our guides to the river side where they receive information about rafting techniques and safety measures. The first 6 Km 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 9 Km. The speed on the river keeps you alert up to the last Kilometer where we return to calm water.
