Infos & Booking


From San Carlos de Bariloche, I propose you to discover the magnificient Arroyo Lopez canyon in Patagonia! Technical and engaged, this canyon requires a good physical condition and a previous experience in canyoning or rope technique.

At the beginning of the season (December), the flow can be quite strong, but at no time is it necessary to know how to swim. The abseils descending take place in a deep canyon before the final opening on the lakes Moreno and Nahuel Huapi. The final section is a sequence of 6 rappels and handrails without leaving the ropes to arrive on the superb 30-meter high final vertical. A walk of about twenty minutes allows to return to the vehicle.

If you prefer an easier route, I also suggest descending the Virgen canyon, still in the vicinity of Bariloche. And for other vertical but less aquatic adventures, I suggest you follow me on the nearby via ferrata of La Virgen.
