I have some experience white water kayaking, and Extremo Sur helped me realize a goal of kayaking in Patagonia! The process was easy, and the staff was incredibly helpful.

The trip to the Manso River was long (9AM to 7PM), but it was well worth it and absolutely worth the money. As a kayaker, I was able to paddle alongside a guide (Esteban Bauer) who was incredibly kind and helpful throughout the process. The river is slightly tricky (III+ depending on time of year by American standards), so unless you have a solid roll and some experience, I would stick to rafting.

The rafting guides spent lots of time playing in rapids in the river and letting customers swim through rapids, so we ended up spending LOTS more time on the river than other companies that same day. I have seen lots of rafting companies simply drift through the river; Extremo Sur caters to the customer's experience. After going down a rapid, the raft paddles along the side and re-enters the rapid for more play and river time.

Each trip guide wears a Go Pro, and sells the footage and pictures at a very reasonable price. If you want a great memory from the great outdoors near Bariloche, send Extremo Sur an email on their website! Their response was very prompt and helped me sort out my questions and concerns. I would absolutely recommend Extremo Sur to anyone looking for an adventurous and memorable way to spend a day in the great outdoors of Patagonia!

We took the raft trip on the Limay River. If you are looking for white water thrills, this isn't the trip for you. If you are looking for an easy guided raft trip, where you don't get wet, this is great. The trip took about 90 minutes. The guide does all the oar work and you can just enjoy the float. The two guides we had in the two rafts spoke excellent English. Snacks and drinks were served. Your feet never get wet.

A must do if you're in Bariloche. The river is one of the most beautiful rivers I have paddled. Extremo sur has very experienced guides that will definitely give you a fun and memorable time. The river, the drive, landscape and the delicious food all add up to a very unique and wonderful experience in Patagonia. My girlfriend and I had an awesome time! Would recommend it to all and I would do it again.

We rafted the Manso river and had a great time rafting. The guide was great. At one point he purposely flipped us to get us familiar with the water and pulled off a great move to end up on top of the flipped raft without going in himself.

We were surprised at the overall length of the day. The river was a two hour drive one way so we spent a lot of time in the bus. On the way to the river we enjoyed the scenery but after a full day of driving, rafting, and eating at the family farm they keep all of their equipment at the day got long.

I cannot recommend the rafting portion enough and the river location is not something they can really impact but I do not think we would do it again.

Hello bfree271, Thank you very much for your comment and we are glad you enjoyed the Rafting on the Manso river Frontera. The Manso River is in the middle of the Andes mountain range and the Patagonia distances are long, sorry that the day was long for you. Regards, Alejandro

We booked this with Extremo Sur but in the end, we were picked up by another company called Rafting Adventure. Rafting itself was great & staff were helpful & provided detailed briefing & instruction. It's our 1st time rafting but we really enjoyed it. It was disappointed to be passed on to another company without being advised.

Dear Julesishere, I would like to apologise for not letting you know in advance that you would be passed on to another company. We should have done it. The reason we did this is because, at this time of the year, when necessary, we work together with other rafting companies to ensure passengers the service, since there is a minimum quantity of people required to organize the excursion. We sincerely appreciate your comment, and if you happen to return to Bariloche, we would like to invite you to raft with us. Best regards, Alejandro

We chose Extremo Sur for a rafting excursion due to it's excellent reviews. However, we had a solo disgruntled guest and it set a uncomfortable tone from the time we were picked up.Granted, the guest was ornery but the guide should have been more adept in dealing with him so that the bad vibes did not accelerate and color the rest of the day.There was also a family of 4 on board that were delightful. The rafting was fun and beautiful and the guides were very knowledgable with an emphasis on safety but our enjoyment was seriously compromised.

Cannot speak highly enough of this experience! The company seems very well run, the instructors were excellent - their knowledge and skills were first rate. My wife had never rafted before but she felt so at ease in their care. The river was fantastic for rafting and the meal after was extra special! Possibly the best asado I had in Argentina, cooked in a beautiful farmhouse next to river, it was a very authentic experience!

I even went back to buy one of their T-Shirts!

I would thoroughly recommend them if you are looking for a great rafting experience in Bariloche!

The rafting was unbelievable. Class 3-4 in an incredibly beautiful river surrounded by beautiful landscapes.

The rafting started basic and slow but built up to get quite intense.

It was the first time for me and my girlfriend and it was extremely comforting how much effort was placed on safety. The safety brief was great and the instructor in the boat always always always stressed it. He only let us have fun once we had shown him we understood how to operate safely. And once he saw that, he let us have some serious fun!

Must do in Bariloche

And they film the whole thing! Have awesome photos and videos from it

At first I didn't feel confident about doing an activity like this one (it was my first time doing rafting) but the Extremo Sur team provided ua a very trustable service regarding security protocols and we always felt we were being provided the best equipment available for the experience. The rafting is a good mixture of sports, fun, a good chance of meeting people from different places (even locals) and also seeing much of the beautiful nature of the Patagonia. My recommendation; don't forget to use sunscreen or after some time of fun you won't realize you enden up like a tomato. Thank you!
