Full description
If you chose the option that includes round-trip transfers, arrive at the meeting point in Salta City at 8:00 AM to begin your journey. The transportation from Salta is with a local driver, not with a tour guide. After a two-hour journey, meet your guides at the base. Alternatively, arrive at the base on your own at 10:30 AM. The rafting experience begins with a safety briefing conducted by your guides, who will provide you with the necessary equipment to begin your descent right in front of the base.

The rafting tour lasts two hours, over of a mix of class-two and class-three rapids. During the descent, enjoy the beautiful Juramento Canyon with its spectacular rock formations and many kinds of flora and fauna. 65 million years ago, the vertical walls of the canyon were large beaches inhabited by prehistoric animals. Along the river, it is possible to see memory of this era in the fossils of the canyon, making for not only beautiful, but also geologically interesting scenery. 

The descent finishes in a place called Los Lapachos, an area with a few small farms. The rafting is ranked as easy active in terms of difficulty. For equipment, you will receive a helmet, paddles, a neoprene suit, and boots. The return to the base is via company vehicle and takes about 20 minutes. An amazing barbecue will be waiting for you following the tour, if add-on selected during booking. The meal includes chorizo, beef, a variety of salads, water, and juice. Back at the base, you will also have access to restrooms with showers and toilets.
