Every waterway has its own features but all of them are rough and their volume fluctuates throughout the summer.
As we reached San Martín de los Andes, we wished to make contact with all the outings we had heard about and longed to practice. River rafting was one of them. It has many followers because it is entertaining and affordable.
Rafting outings are available on the Chimehuin, Aluminé and Hua Hum Rivers, in the outskirts of the city. They are accessed through local roads, which contributes to the outing. These tours are classified according to the level of turbulence of the river, its number of rapids and the speed gained by the raft during the practice.
Likewise, the adventure will change its intensity according to the moment of the summer in which it is enjoyed. The meltdown following the winter will produce more plentiful rivers whereas the end of the summer will provide less water. This will ensure a slower pace that will let visitors relish the surrounding scenery and even a dive at some of the pools.
In general, several RIBs go out at the same time. It is fun to engage in competition with the other boats. This is a team sport and the goal is not to be the first ones to reach the finish line but to sort out the obstacles with good coordination.
