Floating the river not only implies having a great time with friends and family but getting in touch with the wild, rugged Patagonian nature.
Rafting is no longer a water sport for the few; it has become a popular family tourist activity. When the Chimehuin River is the host, it is all fun.
Be it from San Martín de los Andes or neighboring Junín de los Andes, the pleasure begins the moment you set off with your guides. We turned off the paved route into a gravel road leading to Lake Huechulafquen in the Patagonian steppe, home of the magnificent Lanin Volcano, towering over the surrounding mountains.
When we reached the shelter we were welcomed by Mario Bianchi, the heart and soul of the group. After the introductions he described the circuit and we proceeded to put on wet suits, wind jammers, helmets and life vests. Not all the gear is compulsory, though.

We crossed the Andes on board a rubber boat that led us through the Valdivian forest. Rapids, pools and fun with the family took hold of the moment.
