What to Expect
You depart from your Salta hotel and take on Route 68 to the town of Coronel Moldes, there you turn left and take Route 47 bordering the Cabra Corral Dike to the hydroelectric Cabra Corral. You then enter the Canyon Rio Juramento (2 hours drive from Salta Capital).
Meet the base of Salta Rafting. Then the rafting begins at the base of Salta Rafting with an instructive talk about rafting and safety. The equipment is delivered and begins the descent down the rapids of the Rio Juramento. There are 12 different class II and III, framed by the stunning scenery of Canyon Rio Juramento. The canyon of Juramento is like a giant open pit in the mountains. Its walls were 65 million years ago, huge beaches inhabited by prehistoric animals. The descent begins at the base and ends 12 kms later in the Paraje Los Lapachos.
The return to base, by land (in Salta Rafting vehicles) since the end of the rafting tour lasts about 20 minutes.
