Rafting in Rio Manso Inferior in Bariloche
The most sought-after adventure trip, ideal for beginners in mountain rivers, this trip can be enjoyed by the entire family. Sandy beaches, thrilling rapids and the whole splendor of the Andes Patagónicos (Andean-Patagonic) woods. No previous experience required.
We pick up the passengers at their lodging. We leave Bariloche through Route 258, proceeding to LakeSteffen passing lakes Gutierrez, Mascardi and Guillelmo. Once at the Steffen, at around midday, while the guides set up the rafting gear, we change into our rafting gear. After a brief put-in safety talk given by the head-guide, we are ready to go down the Río Manso. Surrounded by high peaks and exuberant forests, our raft drifts downstream while we watch the rich flora of the National Park: coihue, ciprés, arrayán, maitén, radal, colihue cane, chilco, etc. We can also watch birds such as martín pescador (king fisher), bandurria, avutarda and tero. The crystal-clear waters of the Manso will allow us to watch different kinds of trout as well. After approximately an hour and a half, we stop in a beautiful sandy beach, where our guides will offer lunch boxes with meat sandwiches, dressings, vegetable pies, fruits, something sweet and juice. Around 3 p.m. we are all set to resume the trip. From here on, the Manso becomes more and more thrilling. Uvasal (Alka Seltzer), Banda de Billar (Billiard Edge), Diente de Hipopótamo (Hippo Tooth), Montaña Rusa (Roller-coaster) and Roca Magnética (Magnetic Rock) are some of the rapids we will run.
In the summertime, the sun invites us to enjoy a plunge in the lukewarm backwaters. After merging with Río Villegas, we run the most exciting rapids. When we arrive in the Lower Manso valley, the trip concludes. At our private take-out, Puerto Manso the van is going to be waiting for us. We change clothes and enjoy an exquisite snack at the cozy quincho (shed). We then start our trip back to Bariloche, arriving around 7 pm.
