Our town of Bariloche is grandfathered into the National Park that surrounds it. The Moreno Lakes are only a few miles from downtown and offer draw dropping views and post worthy backgrounds (if you know where to find them). We can easily adjust the length of paddle depending on the challenge you seek. Along the way you will learn about the rich history of the national park, identify local flora in season, and stop to share mates and learn about the significance of the cultural tea ceremony. Everywhere you look in Argentina you will see local's sharing mates, but you can't find it served in a restaurant or tea shop. We love to slow down our day and engage in the act of sharing mates with old friends and new acquaintances alike.
My husband and I have been working as an Outdoor Educators & Guides for 15 years in North & South America. We founded Lets Go Patagonia to share our love of the culture and natural riches in Bariloche. We've found in our own travels how valuable quality local interactions can be in your experience in a foreign place so now we are paying if forward to visitors to this amazing place we call home.
We will provide all the accessories needed for mates and snacks. Upon requests we can prepare a local fare lunch.
We will paddle on the East and West Moreno lakes. They are connected by a small natural channel of water. Depending on the weather (Patagonia is a famously windy place) we will choose one lake or the other to paddle on. If you are looking for more physical challenge we can paddle both! Each lake offers gorgeous views of the surrounding mountains and both have seclusive beaches that are perfect for stopping and drinking mates.
We recommend you bring a dry change of clothes in case you get wet. We provide splash jackets, shoes, & life jackets. We suggest sunscreen, sun hat, & sunglasses. We have water-proof bags for phones.
