The descent is undertaken on the clear thaw waters coming down from the mountains on rubber boats taking people of all ages through different landscapes, starting in Valle Grande, 40 kilometers from San Rafael. The Atuel can be enjoyed throughout the year although the very best time of year to do so is from November to March.
In a scale of I to VI the Atuel presents a difficulty of II and III, I being the easiest and VI impracticable. This fact makes rafting here to be open to all types of public; there are varied possibilities due to distances covered and the geological course of the river which can range in duration from 1 to 2 hours.
Rafting, San RafaelThis is a great river adventure full of excitement/adrenalin with sounds, shouting and incredible landscapes, the boats taking visitors along colorful rocky formations, playing with the waters and bringing people to laugh and enjoy the moment forgetting time for a while. Rafting is clearly a team sport as every participant must row, orient his body weight and coordinate movements in the rapids so as to keep the boat afloat.
