The Río de las Vueltas is born in Lago del Desierto and, as its name indicates, descends towards Lake Viedma, making numerous curves through leafy lenga forests and vertical walls. It is one of the most important rivers in the area, since it transports the water produced by the melting of the glaciers.

From our privileged position in the kayak and for 10 kilometers we will be able to enjoy the best views of Fitz Roy and its satellite needles, with a totally different perspective than that which can be seen from a trail. Enjoy with us this unique and unforgettable experience.
