We had a wonderful experiencia in the nature of the Patagonian plains. Our fantastic, fun and knowledgeable guide (Ruben) took us on a wonderful kayak trip with a stop to do a trekking to better experience the special rock formations and incredible views. On the way, he told us about and showed us the local fauna, flora and archaeological wonders of this territory. Clearly, one of the best experiences you can do at El Calafate

The kayak tour was excellent from pickup to drop off. We were given complete instructions and everything you needed for waterproof outfits (not the most glamorous outfits) but kept you dry! Definitely break water and lunch or healthy snacks to keep you going on the trek to the top of the mountain. Thourouhly enjoyed the photos taken so I would advise the purchase of the photos.

It's not only about kayaking on a stuning river. We also went hiking during the lunch break in an unbeleivable are: el cerro Los Hornos.
This place is magical, dry, splendid and we could see massive dinosaurs bones fossiles and petrified trees.

The staff was fabulous as well. It was a fantastic experience, as enjoyable as going to the glacier, it's just totally different.
To me, it's totally a must do

Thank Ruben and Gisele !

Fabulous day kayaking and hiking in the badlands. The guides were all great and we had a nice intro on the bus out about the local geography and wildlife. Even though new to kayaking felt supported throughout.

What an amazing experience we had today kayaking and trekking with Eduardo and Ruben! This trip takes you right into the spectacular Patagonian wilderness. We are a retired couple in our 60s and at times I found it a challenge but it was well worth the effort. It is clear that the both guides love what they do and are totally professional. Every detail is thought out, safety paramount and the equipment is good quality. Highly recommended

The weather did not cooperate and we could not safely kayak. But we went for a +3 hour hike and were shown amazing things. I always appreciate companies put safety first and have a super Plan B.
