This experience takes place in the Rio de Las Vueltas, with daily departures at 10am. and 3pm., from Mil Outdoor oﬃces in El Chaltén. There, each passenger is provided with the technical equipment, and is transported to the entrance area to the river, where the technical and safety procedure is provided. The ﬁrst zone consists of 6 km of calm and curving waters with views of Fitz Roy at the back. An ideal area to get used to the raft and to practice the rowing techniques explained before. The second area goes over a canyon area. After the initial rapid, we ﬁnd a succession of rapids for 9 km. Towards the end, an area of 1 km of calm water await for us!. At the end of the tour, we get oﬀ the raft and our vehicle take us back to El Chaltén.
