Bariloche - Patagonia Norte

This is a very affordable 2-day kayaking experience in the Nahuel Huapi National Park. On this tour we will kayak in Lake Mascardi, surrounded by an incredible mountain landscape.
No previous experience is required but you do need to have a good fitness level to stand 2 days of exercise.

Day 1
We will leave the hotel in Bariloche early in the morning and we will head to the Wiritray camping site, which belongs to the Mapuche community. After a briefing on basic kayaking techniques and rescue maneuvers, we will begin our adventure paddling along an arm of Lake Mascardi called Catedral. We will stop for lunch at a beach and, in the afternoon, we will continue to Los RĂ¡pidos camping site, where we will enjoy mate with pastries. We will have some time to relax and explore the woods on a hike to Lake Los Moscos. Dinner and overnight in tents at Los RĂ¡pidos camping site.

Day 2
After breakfast, we will prepare the kayaks for the second day of adventure. Today we will paddle along another arm of Lake Mascardi called Tronador, where we will enjoy amazing views of the Bonete and Tronador mountains. If the wind is calm, we will cross the lake to look for a remote beach for lunch. We will continue our trip to the lakehead, where the glacial waters of the Manso River meet the lake. This is the final stop of our tour. We will then drive back to Bariloche.

Safety is paramount in Andestrack. This is why our professional guides can modify the itinerary of the expedition, like distances to be covered, the lake in which to paddle, the paths to follow, and even cancel activities if the climatic conditions do not allow them or if the members of the group are not prepared to enjoy the adventure.
