For someone who had only just taken her first few paddle strokes in the quiet waters of Copenhagen, ending a holiday in Argentina on a paddling trip with a group of kayakers does not seem like the obvious choice. My boyfriend was joining "Rivers of Patagonia ll-lll, and as I didn't have the paddling skills to come on the trip I signed up for the "non paddlers option".... Prior to our departure to Argentina everything was carefully planned not least thanks to Katie, who helped us out with any queries and questions. Upon arrival at La Confluencia I immediately loved it and the people there. -Very fortunate seeing that I (we) were spending a full week with the people :-) Although I was signed up for "non paddlers option" I came along the kayakers on 3 of the days in a ducky (inflatable kayak) on the easy rivers. I was rather nervous (putting it mildly) on my first day of paddling. After careful instructions, in the river I went. Soon I would find myself having so much fun and at the same time knowing I was in the best and safest hands! During the other days of the week I went on guided hikes in the beautiful surroundings of the rivers. On one of the days I was meant to go mountain biking, but unfortunately due to too much rain the trip had to be changed, as the tracks would not have been safe for me to ride. An alternative plan was made and laid out for me.They had expected the unexpected. Overall the trip had been carefully planed and carried through "to perfection". The combination of the different lodgings was fantastic as each place had its own special mark. On top of it all, all the guides were amazing. First of all super good and professional at what they were doing, but secondly really cool and friendly people and the cause of MUCH laughter. Icing on the cake was the fact that the other paddlers turned out to be really cool too.
Not even in my wildest dreams had I dared to hope for the amazing experience this trip turned out to be. Had I the opportunity to go again, I would go in a flash! Thank you Katie & Julian for organizing a FANTASTIC trip and thank you Fidel and Ezequiel for being such cool guides.
