Well organised trip. We were picked up from our hotel which was great. The guides were really friendly and knowledgeable. Everyone spoke English and we were able to pay on us dollars. The trip was a half day experience which included drinks and snacks and a short trek along the coast line. Great value. Wish we had had the to do a longer trip as it would have been fantastic. Would definitely go back!

This is a really enjoyable day out kayaking in lakes near Bariloche Centro. The equipment was first class and includes splash guards - something I've never had on a kayak tour before.

The guides were very knowledgeable too and made it an enjoyable trip. The scenery is really wonderful with the lake set in stunning mountains with great vistas.

This tour isn't for a hard core kayaker - its quite leisurely and not stressful. Beware that if you're by yourself you will be paired up with someone in a double kayak.

Good fun afternoon

Spent a day on a lake, followed by kayaking the Limay River for 2 days with an overnight camp. A superb trip, great guide, good food and equipment. Well recommended!

Took the half-day kayak yesterday on Lake Guiterrez & had spectacular weather. We were picked up from our hotel at 2PM, taken to the lake, and in the water after a short safety briefing. There were 8 total couples, plus 2 guides & 1 photographer. Kayaking is a nice change of pace from driving- you get to see the mountains and landscape change slowly and before your eyes. Getting out on the lake gives you some distance from the shore & lets you see above the nearby mountains to the towering mountains off in the distance. We paddled an hour to a lovely beach where we stopped for tea/coffee and a snack. Some people went swimming & we took pictures on a gorgeous dead tree ashore.

The phtoographer took excellent photos & we purchased for $80pesos after the trip on a CD. The provided a nice splash guard to shield your lower half & you didn't get too wet at all. Take water shoes/sandals & a waterproof camera if you have it.
