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.

  • The dam due to its proximity to the city of Trelew (108 Km) is one of the places chosen to spend a beautiful Sunday, to make tracking, to fish, or explore its natural beauties.

  • 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.
