We can help arrange additional activities such as kayaking, whitewater rafting, horseback riding and mountain biking. Here are some suggested, optional tours:

Manso River Valley Mountain Biking (Full-day)

After picking you up at your hotel, we start our adventure driving south, along the shores of the lakes Gutiérrez, Mascardi and Guillelmo. Then we head west along a gravel road up to the first bridge over the Manso River, whose crystal clear waters with green and blue shades (Lower Manso) flow towards the Pacific. There, after preparing our mountain bikes, we pedal over the hanging bridge and start our ride across the Manso valley along the right shore of the river. Along the way, we view the neighboring mountains, such as Bastión and Ventisqueros. We cycle across streams and over small bridges to discover wild Patagonia with its spectacular waterfalls, solitary prairies and a myriad of flora. Halfway through our trip, we enjoy a homemade picnic on the river shore. After a short break, we follow a relatively flat single track until we reach the last stage of the trip, where it becomes steeper and rougher. Again, we bicycle down towards the second hanging bridge across the Manso River, where the impressive emerald waters, its rapids and a magnificent sandy beach make it the ideal setting to relax and start our way back to the city of Bariloche. Includes Lunch. Total distance: 15-20 miles / 25 - 35km

Whitewater Rafting

Our trained guides will take you through private country with fantastic scenery to the river. Here enjoy a homemade breakfast and receive your equipment check and safety briefing. Next take on the river for about a 10 km ride mixing fun water entertainment with thrilling rapids in a spectacularly beautiful natural setting!

Our guide and driver were very good with their knowledge and were very helpful with our questions. It was a very pleasant visit that would have been impossible to do on our own. Hotels and restaurants were fantastic. The special places we got to go to, like the kitchens, were great. Enjoyed the entire trip!
