I was wondering about rafting in Bariloche in the end of september. How is the weather then? Won`t it be too cold?
And about the cycling. I`m a bit afraid coz I haven`t cycled for years now but my travelpartner really wants to do it.
So is it possible to find something not up-hill more on flat ground...?

Szonja, your best bet will be to contact the biking experts in Bariloche. We have been in touch with them for a while, promised to put up some pages about what they do on our site but never found the time. Anyway, they should be able to help you. Contact Marcelo Croce at email@example.com. If this doesn't do it come back to our forum and we will make sure you get the answer you are looking for...

One of the most fun programs I ever did was during last Dec 2004: 2 days of rafting at "El Manso" in Bariloche + 3 days horseback riding crossing an area of the Cordillera de los Andes (Rocky mountains) to Chile.
Remember the name of the company that provided the tour was Extremo sur .( worthwhile !!)

Hi, I just tried emailing Marcelo Croce and the email didn't work! Do you have any other contact info? I'm going to be traveling near Baroliche this month and would like to do the Camino de siete lagos on a bicycle. Does anyone know of a company that rents or organizes this trip? I'll be alone so would want company. Thanks!

Ana, I think the 7 lakes road is closed from a big landslide a few weeks ago. The lower elevation mountain bike trails are free of snow, but there is a lot of debris (downed trees) from the Tormenta de Santa Rosa that might take awhile to get cleared. Your best bet for an excellent ride is the ride to Parque Arrayanes on the Quetrihue peninsula, by Villa La Angostura. If you are just talking about regular road riding, the Circuito Chico is an awesome 23 km loop.

I think rafting would depend on if the company had enough clients that day. Today is warm, about 15C and no wind, it would be a perfect day to be El Rio. If you call around, I am sure you will find a company operating, at least on the weekends. Suerte!
