The Full Day Program starts with the picking up at the Calafate Hotels, then the trip (220 Km) to El Chaltén arriving at about 11 a.m to the meeting point.
From 11:00 to 15:00, clients can visit the national trekking capital at their own. Information about the different treks or points of interest of El Chalten can be obtained in the Intendance of National Parks.
At 15:00 visitors meet again at the meeting point and head to the operatinal base where they will welcome and explain the development of the activity.
In the operation base visitors are given the necessary rafting equipment: waterproof and dry suit, boots, and life jackets. Once everyone is ready, they are taken with our guides to the river side where they receive information about rafting techniques and safety measures and practice them. Now, they are certainly ready to go! The first four kilometers have calm and quiet water with the Fitz Roy at your back, ideal to get in touch with the river and practice the techniques that are going to be used later. Afterwards, we go over a deep ravine where we are able to enjoy a series of rapids for 8 Km. The speed ok the river keeps you alert up to the last 2 Km where we return to calm water. Another rhythm to meet Patagonia.
After the adventure in the river a free lunch box is given in our headquarters.
Important: people under 18 who want to be part of this activity must be accompanied by their parents or legal tutor.
