RAFTING IN ARGENTINA

Rafting in Iguazu Rafting in Mendoza Rafting in Salta

Rafting is a team sport, where all members of the raft's crew row and orient their weight in a coordinated manner to navigate the river's rapids while keeping afloat.
The standard number of people aboard a raft is of six to eight crewmembers, according to the size of the boat.
The guide, who must know to the detail each part of the river, is who directs the movements of the raft.
For those starting on this sport, we recommend they sit in the middle of the inflated rubber, where there is less movement. Those with some previous experience and preferring to row can sit in the forefront, while those truly experienced usually go in the back.
The level of difficulty in rafting is measured according to the rivers, which vary from 1 to 6 grades, being the number 1 the easiest and the 6 for experts only, for they are absolutely dangerous and border the limits of navigation criteria.
Operators offering these kinds of excursions provide passengers with all the necessary equipment to get the most of this exciting adventure. An oar, a helmet, a lifejacket, a dry jacket, and sometimes even a neoprene wetsuit isolating from the cold, are part of the gear.
In order to realize a safe rafting trip, it is fundamental and indispensable that all crewmembers know how to swim.

Some circuits combine rafting with other activities like kayaking, horse riding, trekking, mountain biking and 4 wheel drive trips. Rafting is practiced all year round, but its useful to understand that most rivers increase their flow during summer, and so do their levels of difficulty. Out of the southern hemisphere summer season, this practice is apt for almost any kind of people.

An activity to test the traveller's nerve is, undoubtedly, rafting, which allows the negotiation of the Salta river rapids above rubber boats (rafts) or kayaks. It is a unique experience, one in which rookies as well as experts can participate.

It is a four-hour duration circuit, and it is practiced on the Río Juramento canyon, with scenery that includes a magnificent landscape and dinosaur tracks.

The rafts have a 2, 6, 8 and 10 person capacity. The descent can also be achieved by kayak for the boldest adventurers. The Río Juramento River has class 2 and 3 rapids, which means medium class, with two alternative routes.

They both start at the spot known as Peñas Blancas, a leveller dike at Cabra Corral (70 kilometres south of the city of Salta)

The first one offers a short 15 kilometres and two hour-long journey down to Los Lapachos. The second one is a 35 kilometre five hour-long drive down to the La Troja landing. In either case, the authorized operators offer the round trip to the place (optional), all the necessary gear and in some cases a snack as well.
