In San Carlos de Bariloche you can do canyoning, a type of adventure tour combining hiking with climbing and swimming in pools, canyons and rapids. To practise this sport you can hire the services of an agency selling this kind of excursions.
This outing includes jumping from natural springboards to deep pools, crossing the river with your team, walking on the rocks, rappel climbing in cascades and plenty of adrenaline.
The necessary garment includes a helmet, a harness and a neoprene jacket, which can be hired from the operator.
For those who wish to go canyoning for the first time, we recommend the 45 m. high cascade in Arroyo de la Virgen called Salto del Vasco.
Once you get to the top of the cascade, you can start your descent.
urrounded by an exhuberant vegetation, these natural pools invite you to plunge into water and discoverthe secrets of the stream.
In the steepest sector you will use ropes for rappel.
In less steep sites you must let yourself be dragged by the water sitting on the polished rock of the jumps.
These milenary natural slides carved by the persistence of the water are ideal for this kind of adventure.
You will drift on the stream among rocks of different colors.
Suddenly the waters get faster and give way to emotion overcoming the jumps. Downstream there is an exciting toboggan at the end of this fun challenge.
By the end of this circuit, you will be seduced by canyoning and will surely want to meet with similar experiences of varying difficulties.
