Paddle along the third longest river in the Americas for a quick escape away from the hustle and bustle of Buenos Aires. The Paraná River Basin and Delta is a lush, green paradise with its own unique culture. Your local guide has been kayaking in the area for over 10 years and knows it’s the best way to travel along the river. You’ll meet in Tigre, a short train ride away from Buenos Aires, and from there, your guide will take you 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. Half of your trip will be spent paddling away in the water. Houses on stilts, aquatic birds, and local people on their boats will be sharing the river with you. Once you paddle back to the dock, 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 brief kayaking trip will show you a whole separate culture in Argentina, once you step away from the capital city.
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.
