Dam Nature / Park
Take a trip to Florentino Ameghino Dam, a gravity river dam in a picturesque valley. Located on the Chubut River, which is supplied by snow melting from the Andes, the dam was inaugurated in 1963 and named after an Argentine natural scientist. Admire the view of the imposing structure, which is surrounded by interesting rock formations, and spans the emerald waters of the river. Explore the tranquil area on a bike, walk, or try your hand at canoeing and kayaking in the region. You can bathe and swim in the river water, just remember it's very cold. A visit to Florentino Ameghino Dam represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Dique Florentino Ameghino trip generator to plot your vacation.

  • I was surprised by the beauty of this place, with spectacular views. Place to take some pictures!

  • After both desert and monotony, suddenly the road down abruptly and gets fully into Villa Ameghino next to its dock. In place really is an oasis already that to use the waters of the river Chubut, everything gives you life. Greenery and colorful, something that is not usually seen in that area. The village is very small, but wonderful. The place reminds me of the atuel River Canyon. Out of the dam, the route starts to climb, and suddenly all desert mirás again by the mirror and it is as if you had never passed. Incredible.

  • On our way from Bariloche to the Valdes peninsula we had an overnight in a small settlement on the Digue Florentino Ameghino. After you previously for hours drove through the pampas landscape, the Green Valley like an oasis's. This effect is supported, since you can only see the dam after they drove through a small tunnel. Views specifically when the sun shines on the water reservoir and the opposite Valley is beautiful. Of course the detour not worth extra so, but who ever is on the way, it should look at.
