Canon del Atuel, San Rafael

4.8
A popular outdoor excursion spot, Canon del Atuel connects two lakes and cuts through the heart of a mountain range. You can tour the canyon via several local highways in the area, which wind along the river through rugged gorges accented by towering rock formations and dusty hillsides. Keep your eyes peeled for dams, mountains, and reservoirs along the way, some of which boast rock formations eroded into distinctive shapes. On some stretches, you can hop aboard a kayak or river rafting tour to brave the canyon's wild rapids and chutes.

  • Beautiful walk through the geological stages of the earth. Well preserved path and something different to make as an excursion. It's worth doing.

  • It's a natural wonder, super imposing. I recommend doing it on my own, by car, that allows you to stop as you want. Start from El Nihuil, cross the canyon until you reach Valle Grande. It's all a spectacle
