Inspirock Rating:
4.8/5 based on 2,000+ 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. Put Canon del Atuel into our San Rafael itinerary builder to see other points of interest to visit during your vacation in San Rafael.
