Canon del Atuel, San Rafael
(4.8/5 based on 2,200+ reviews on the web)
A popular outdoor excursion spot, Canon del Atuel connects two lakes and cuts through the heart of a mountain range. You can tour the canyon via several local highways in the area, which wind along the river through rugged gorges accented by towering rock formations and dusty hillsides. Keep your eyes peeled for dams, mountains, and reservoirs along the way, some of which boast rock formations eroded into distinctive shapes. On some stretches, you can hop aboard a kayak or river rafting tour to brave the canyon's wild rapids and chutes.

  • Full-day excursion, approximately 10 hours, is not recommended to do with guide with small children can be exhausting. In that case it is recommended to go in a private car to do the necessary stops. The postcards are unique, coronandolo with a large Valley rafting. To get to know necessarily pass through San Rafael.

  • Somewhere beautiful to go and remember how beautiful that is Mendoza and the beautiful which is Argentina. All provinces have their charm and the atuel River Canyon has its charms well deserved.
