8 Days of Lodge-based Multi-Sport adventures
per person based on double occupancy
Deposit: $1000 Meeting Place: Bariloche, Argentina Gateway City: Buenos Aires, Argentina River Rating: Class II-IV Age Range: 6 – 80
In South America’s southern frontier, nature, long left to its own devices, grows wild, barren and beautiful. In Patagonia, spaces are large, as are the silences that fill them. For those who come here, an encounter with such emptiness can be as awesome as the sight of jagged peaks, pristine rivers and dusty backwater oases.
Based in northern Patagonia, this lodge-based multi-sport embeds all the elements Patagonia and the Bariloche region of Argentina has to offer: hiking, horseback riding, kayaking, fishing and river rafting. There are also optional yoga and polo lessons, massage therapy, kite boarding, paragliding, climbing, and pretty much any adventure activity you can imagine! Strung out along the shoreline of Lago Nahuel Huapi, in the middle of the national park of the same name, Bariloche (formally San Carlos de Bariloche) has one of the most gorgeous settings imaginable. Truly a year round adventure destination, the wealth of activities available nearby in the surrounding countryside, has helped it become the Lake District’s principal destination.
Our luxurious watefront lodgings feaure breathtaking views and allow guests a plethora of adventure options. You can ride on horseback, hike and climb on wonderful mountain trails (in the national park trail network). Guests can paddle kayaks or fly fish on the lake or raft a pristine river, returning each night to the incredible luxury of our full-service waterfront accommodations. The soaring peaks ring the region, giving picture-postcard views in nearly every direction.

What to Expect on the Patagonia Multi-Sport – Argentina
Today is your arrival to Bariloche. It’s a 30-minute drive from the airport to our first nights lodging. If you arrive in the morning, the guides will take you for lunch and a fun hike up Cero San Martin. Overnight at Estancia Carmen
After an early breakfast, we’ll take a scenic shuttle to our river base. Guests will be able to choose between a class II or class IV whitewater rafting experience on the Manso River. The scenic drive will fill your soul with the beauty of this well named “Lake District”. This is an exceptional day on the water and you will be treated to fun rapids, great scenery and a plentiful Asado for lunch. Tonight, we’ll enjoy a wonderful dinner and an educational and fun wine tasting experience. Overnight at Estancia Carmen
Today we’ll spend the entire day exploring Lago Mascardi by kayak. We’ll take a picnic lunch with us and dine on remote beach at our leisure, soaking in the superb views. There will be plenty of time to recharge at lunch and at the day’s end, we’ll check into Hotel Tronador. Overnight Hotel Tronador
Today we’ll let you sleep in a little longer before plying you with breakfast treats like home-made pastries and jams, fresh berry tarts from our organic garden or whatever you like best at breakfast time. We’ll split our day with a morning hike and then an afternoon horseback ride through incredible forest and meadows. Our famous mountain oasis is shadowed by the region’s highest peak and our lodge’s namesake, Mt Tronador. Overnight Hotel Tronador
Today we have many options to consider, so here’s a few:
The main attraction at Hotel Tronador is our proximity to the Otto Meiling trek. So, for those wanting a bigger challenge, we have a full-day hike that will bring you in touch with peaks of the Andean Ranges. The 14km walk takes about 6-8 hours and takes you through varied terrain. The first part of the hike takes you through scenic old-growth forest and the second part rewards you with dramatic alpine views of the glacier and the jutting peaks of Cerro Tronador. After this full-day of adventure, you may enjoy another healing massage or just rest before cocktails and dinner.
For those not wanting a full day hike of this magnitude, we have shorter routes to a cascade, horseback riding and kayaking available at your discretion. Overnight Hotel Tronador
Today is the day to do all the things you’ve not been able to do yet! Hike, try fly fishing, horseback ride, go for a boat ride, kayak or challenge another stretch of the Manso River, the choices are yours. Tonight we’ll celebrate in style as we reminisce over this exciting week of adventure and fascinating cultural experiences. Overnight Hotel Tronador
There should be time to take in a morning activity and enjoy the last views and beauty of the Nahuel Huapi National Park before heading back into Barlioche for a night on the town. Tonight we will eat at Alberto’s Bariloche’s most legendary steakhouse and overnight at Cacique Inacayal Lake & Spa Hotel.
Today is your departure day from Bariloche. For some, it means heading back to Buenos Aires while others may continue on to our Chilean Lakes District multisport adventure, El Calafate and El Chalten or perhaps a week of challenge on the mighty Futaleufu River.
