Rafting on the Mendoza River
For those who love adventure and adrenaline, rafting on the Mendoza River is ideal for you, as it has fast and exciting waters. To explore these waters, you will not need previous experience as you will have a guide when hiring the service.
You will have to choose between 2 excursions, one half-day and the other full-day. The one classified as “half-day” has a duration of 1 hour, this includes neoprene suit and boots, helmet, jacket, paddle, life jacket, professional guide, safety talks, and finally kayaks for support.
The one classified as “full-day” has a duration of 4 hours as it covers approximately 30 km, and the same as the previous one is included, but additionally you will have a lunch box.
Immerse yourself in this experience and, in addition to the adrenaline, enjoy the incredible landscapes that Mendoza offers from this perspective.

Activities in Potrerillos
Potrerillos is well known for its beautiful nature and its diverse outdoor activities, which is why you have to dedicate a full day to this incredible place.

Another option is to rent a sailboat, in which the Huayra company stands out.
