Kayaking tour in Potrerillos Lake
The kayaking tour in Potrerillos Dam is one of the most relaxing experiences you can live. The dance of the calm waters under the kayaks makes this tour a favorite for those seeking to combine the beauty of the Andes Mountains and the tranquility of the emblematic Mendocino dam.
In the morning, we will leave Mendoza early in the morning and take National Route 7. After a forty-five minute drive we will arrive at the heart of Potrerillos, where our base of operations awaits us with expert guides. During the trip we will visit the picturesque town of Cacheuta and its imposing landscapes.
Once at the Potrerillos Dam it will be time to get ready, our guides will have everything ready to enter the majestic water mirror. The first thing will be to know the equipment that will accompany us; a neoprene suit, boots and helmet will serve for us to have a safe experience. After the instructions, we will learn the paddling techniques and then we will get to know our kayak. A journey that can be lived individually or shared in any of our boats. When we are ready, it will be time to begin the tour.
For more than two hours we will be sailing through the calm waters of the dam, where we will have the best view of the Cordón del Plata and the mountain range that make up this imposing postcard, no doubt these landscapes will remain in your retina for a lifetime.
Around noon the excursion will come to an end, but the moment to experience the beauty of these landscapes continues. A few free hours are enough to understand that the calm and quietness of this experience is an eternal memory.
