Adventure travel includes activities through which people change from being spectators to becoming protagonists of the landscape.
Hiking, mountain biking, kayaking, horse-riding, rafting, rapelling, canopy, etc., are the activities that require physical effort, which may be moderate or high, depending on the itinerary choice or the physical condition of the person involved.
The good thing is that in Argentina, and especially in Patagonia, we have a menu for everybody. From hiking on the high country, over 4,000 m.a.s.l., during several days, through rides across ancient forests, kayaking in white waters rivers or in quiet lakes, to rock or ice climbing at the huge glaciers in the South.
What must be clear is that, as we make contact with nature, we have to comply with certain rules that nature itself sets for us to respect.
We must be respectful and conscious of the preservation of the environment and that our pace must not leave permanent traces in the various habitats. Especially, we should not leave any waste behind and this way we will be able to continue enjoying for good the beauty our world offers us.
