Unforgettable day in Northern Patagonia exploring the best landscapes of the Manso River Valley, with the adventure and adrenaline of rafting to the Argentinean-Chilean border, crossing fun rapids and canyons.

In the morning, we will pick you up at hotels in the city of Bariloche. Accompanied by a professional guide, we will enjoy a scenic drive of approximately 2 hours.

Our first stop is at the farm of the John family, old settlers and pioneers of the Manso River Valley. We will be welcomed with coffee and we will have time to get dressed with the technical equipment for the rafting activity. Once equipped, we take a short transfer to the river bank, where we will receive a technical and safety talk from the rafting guides.

We board the rafts and get ready to enjoy an unforgettable adventure on the crystal clear waters of the Manso River, surrounded by white sand beaches, waterfalls, exciting rapids, narrow canyons and lush vegetation. The activity ends at the Argentinean-Chilean border.

After leaving the rafts we walk 500 meters with a slight slope. We say goodbye to the rafting guides and return the equipment and clothing. In our vehicle we drive 15 kilometers along a mountain road until we arrive at Rio Manso Camp, an exclusive nomadic glamping set up on the river shore.

The staff welcomes us in the Lounge Tent, where a complete lunch awaits us, tasting the best regional flavors accompanied by Patagonian wines. We enjoy this menu, with spectacular views of the river and mountains. After lunch there is free time to relax and unwind in the shade of the forest or by the river.

In the afternoon, we say goodbye to the camp after an unforgettable day exploring the Manso River Valley. Transfer back to the hotels in the city of Bariloche.
