We had a fantastic experience with Pedro and his father Miguel. For 1800ARS per person (~USD 30 at current exchange rate), we spent the whole day kayaking to different spots on Lago Epuyen, and the delicious steak and avocado (or egg for vegetarian option) sandwiches, homemade scones and jam and mate were all included! Pedro also picked us up and dropped us off at Hostel Luz Clara (which I believe is an arrangement specific to that hostel). Both he and his father were a lot of fun to spend time with, and made everyone in the group feel at ease on and off the water. The kayaking was hard work on the way back as the wind picked up, but still manageable for the whole group, which included a variety of ages and physiques. Highly recommended experience.

The kayak trip started at 11:00 and ended at 19:00, it was the best I ever had!! The guide Pedro is very professional and I felt safe with him all the time. The peddling was quite hard work because of the wind and waves but it’s totally worth it. We stopped twice for food, swimming and relaxing. The food is good and vegan/vega option if you’d like. It’s better to book the tour directly with Pedro in stead of with the tourist office grado42, it will safe you 15USD! Amazing, perfect, fantastic!!! Thank you Pedro!

Had an absolutely brilliant day with Pedro and his family on Lago Epuyen. We were picked up by Pedro in El Bolson and brought to his home where he gathered the equipment, all of which was top quality. Spent time here chatting to his family before heading to the lake. We kayaked to a small beach where we had a steak lunch which was delicious. Also, the vegetarians in the group were catered to as well. After lunch we hiked to a viewpoint overlooking the beautiful lake before setting off in the kayak to a different beach where we stopped again. Here, we sat in the sun and ate delicious homemade scones and jam (made by his mother). Honestly, they were amazing. We also got to sample some mate here. Before we started our journey back we walked to a waterfall. The kayak back to the start was very tough as we were kayaking into the wind but Pedro was always in control and we eventually made it back. I would highly recommend this excursion to everyone. Great day out. Thank you Pedro!

We went kayaking with Pedro, his brother and sister and had a fantastic day out! The trip started with an easy kayak to a beach where we walked to a view point - when we got back pedro cooked up a storm of eggs, tomato, lettuce, cheese, zucchini, avocado and steak to put into buns for lunch. This was super delicious! 2 of us are vegetarian and we loved the bbq'd zucchini. Our friends who ate the steak loved it too. Really tasty. Frozen rasberry for dessert. Really thoughtful and tasty! We continued and kayaked from there towards another beach. The winds picked up so it was tougher. Walked to a waterfall and had Pedro's mum's homemade scones, absolutely unbelievable - so so good - we are Irish and they reminded us a lot of scones at home. Paired with Pedro's mum's homemade jam made from fruit from their garden. We chilled out here for a bit sipping mate and munching on the delicious scones. We then kayaked back to shore which was tough in parts too. Pedro was a fantastic guide, always there to help. Really passionate about what he does and his family were equally really friendly and helpful too. Definitely recommend this trip during your time in this area. Really is a great experience and day out :) thank you for a fantastic time!

Our day out with Pedro and his family was fantastic. He picked us up from our air b n b and brought us to his house to pick up the gear where we got to chat to his lovely dad and see his beautiful sheepdog and puppies. We headed to the lake then to start our adventure. We had to kayak to the first stop which was a beach and the water was lovely and calm. It was here that Pedro whipped out his fabulous stove and cooked up a storm. We had steak, eggs, vegetables and guacamole. Two of our friends are vegetarians and he cooked up lovely vegetables for them. For dessert we had delicious raspberries and sugar - so yummy! We then took a walk up to the view of the lake which was gorgeous. We kayaked down to another part of the lake. The wind had picked up at this point and I was a bit nervous. Pedro was so lovely and calm - he helped us with our kayak and made me feel so safe! We had one final stop at a beach where we walked up to the waterfall. We chilled out on the beach chatting and having mate, fresh scones and jam that were prepared by Pedro's mother. They were amazing!!!!! The kayak back to the shore was tough at times as the wind was in our faces but Pedro and the other guides stayed with us the whole way! It was such a great day out - would highly recommend this to anyone visiting El Bolson!!
