Your tour begins with a 10am pick-up from your Bariloche hotel and a short transfer to the El Retorno Inn, where your guides will be waiting for you. After getting suited up in waterproof clothing and life jackets (provided), and learning the basics of paddling and steering your kayak, jump aboard to begin your kayaking excursion. Follow your guide on a scenic tour around Lake Gutierrez, paddling past the shingle beaches, lush forests and snow-capped peaks of the Lake District. Keep a look out for birds and other wildlife along the way, then stop to re-fuel with a delicious lunch on a deserted beach, followed by hot tea or coffee, and alfjores (chocolate biscuits). After around 5 hours on the water, paddle your way back to shore, where your driver will be waiting to take you back to your hotel. Please note: All necessary equipment is provided, including dry bags to protect cameras and other valuables.
The Peuma Hue Eco-lodge is a paradise for those who love trekking and kayaking. A wide variety of trails cross pristine forests, rocks, ravines, alluviums, hills and imposing waterfalls with wonderful views over Gutiérrez and Mascardi lakes and an old fold on the other side of the lake. Several trails lead to different waterfalls and viewpoints that can be linked in longer circuits. This is one of the few places on Earth where the waters are so clean and pure that they can be drunk directly from the stream or waterfall without danger!
