Description

Spend a day in the outdoors on the Paraná River Basin and Delta, a lush, green paradise with its own unique culture. The third largest river in the Americas will dazzle you with its beauty as you paddle along on a kayak. Your local guide has been kayaking in the area for over 10 years and knows it’s the best way to travel the river. You’ll meet in Tigre, a short train ride away from Buenos Aires, and from there your guide will take to the islands in the river. If you’ve never kayaked before, don’t fret because your certified instructor will lead you through the basics and safety tips. The total distance you’ll paddle is about 15 km or 4 hours of kayaking. You’ll explore 4 different streams of the delta on this full day tour. This tour will be physically strenuous but you’ll also have time to slow down and relax for a bit and take it all in. Houses on stilts, aquatic birds, and local people on their boats will be sharing the river with you. Along the Ramita Negra stream, your group will stop for a quick lunch in a typical café. If there is time, you’ll have the option of adding a quick hike around the islands before paddling back to the dock. Upon return, you’ll have time to change and have a quick snack as you take in the beauty of the river from the dock one last time. This kayaking tour will take you off-the-beaten path to learn about a whole new culture in Argentina and get some fresh air and exercise while you do so.

As a kid growing up in Buenos Aires, my grandparents used to always take me boating. I even learned how to row before I knew how to read. They instilled a passion for the outdoors in me at an early age.

I started rowing when I was a kid, going for short trips in the Delta with my family. When I was a teenager and saw a map of the Delta I got eager to explore it. It was such a huge and wonderful place and I only knew a tiny bit! So I started going on longer trips, kayaking, rowing, camping, canoeing, and later, sailing. 

I've studied antropology and cinematography, which have given me skills and ways of seing the world that usually come in handy. I worked for a long time in film shooting, but in the last ten years I've spent more time on the water than on land. I love the river and its Delta; sharing this place with new people is my passion.
