Crossing the Andes to Pacífic ocean - Chile: Rafting, Horseback and trekking.


Day 1: Argentina y Chile
Arrival at Buenos Aires airport and transfer to the domestic airport, flight to Bariloche in Northwestern Patagonia. Overnight at a cozy hostel in Llao Llao. Three hour excursion around "Short Circuit" in the beautiful lake district of Nahuel Huapí.

Day 2:
Short crossing and then hike to a typical Estancia (farm-ranch) over the Patagonian steppe, where we are welcomed with a delicious Lamb Asado. Today we shall experience the impressive difference between the landscapes west and east of Bariloche, separated only by a few kilometers. With some luck we can see the condors circle above our heads over the bizarre rock formations. Same overnight stay as previous day.

Day 3:
Crossing to Steffen Lake, where we begin our 7-day tour over the Andes to Chile. Rafting along the emerald green Manso River (Grade II-III). Lunch and dinner in the midst of an almost virgin landscape. The next six nights are spent at the camping site.

Day 4:
After breakfast we mount our horses and ride along a shoreside track in the direction of Chile. Wonderful views of mountains and waterfalls await us on the way.

Day 5: estepa patagonica
 The excursion continues on rafting kayaks (duckys), where we'll see carp swim around us in the crystal clear waters. Shortly after the border crossing we set up camp on the river and enjoy a Lamb Asado.

Day 6:
Inhabitants of this remote area will lend us their horses. Descent on horseback in the midst of the luxurious and damp wilderness, which shall leave a deep impression on us.

Day 7:
We continue on foot, descending toward the valley.

Day 8: Gaucho
After a hearty breakfast, we do some hiking and in the early afternoon we lower our boats back into the Manso.

Day 9:
Rafting along the Manso and later along the Río Puelo until we reach Tagua- Tagua Lake. Here, our boats and equipment are loaded onto a ferry and crossed over to the other side of the lake. There we let the Río Puelo drift us down to the Pacific. We take a regular service bus to Puerto Varas on the Llanquíhue Lake with the breathtaking Osorno Volcano directly in front of us. Overnight stay in small inn.
