Raft the white water rapids of the Mendoza River in the shadow of the Andes Mountains on a rafting adventure from Mendoza. Benefit from a convenient shuttle transfer to the river and all the necessary equipment to keep you safe and secure.
What to Expect
Indulge your passion for adventure on a white water rafting activity on the Mendoza River, departing Mendoza and traveling a scenic route to the base camp, just before Potrerillos's Dike.
Get a safety briefing and collect your rafting equipment before you hit the rapids. The base camp is equipped with locker facilities, a bathroom and restaurant for your convenience. During the summer, the river drags sediments and forms waves that result in higher intensity on the water. In the winter, the flow goes down and allows you to spot the rocks that are part of the riverbed.
Stay as dry as you can in your neoprene suit, designed to keep you comfortable when you get soaked out on the river. Travel approximately 8 miles (13 kilometers) down river, navigating your through the mostly class II rapids. Note that rising water levels can lead to class III or IV rapids during the summer.
Benefit from the services of a guide who will provide you with instructions and tips throughout the ride, and admire the scenery of the Potrerillos Valley and Cordón del Plata before you return to base and on to Mendoza.
