ACTIVITY / KAYAK EXPEDITION
We pick you up at 9.00 at your hotel to drive through national route 40 until we reach our starting point.
After the respective instructions (safety talk and paddling techniques) provided by our guide, we will start our activity.
We depart from Playa Negra, at the shore of Mascardi. We sail through the waters of the Catedral Branch, enjoying the varied colour-scheme that characterizes the lake, and stop for lunch at one of the isolated beaches of the route. After lunch, we continue paddling until we reach Los Leones Beach, where we dine and spend the night.
Sunrise finds us at the shore of Los Leones Beach and we have breakfast before departing. We return sailing on the opposite shore tacking Cerro Mora and take the Tronador Branch. Around noon, we stop for lunch in front of Corazón Island, surrounded by wild vegetation, a dense forest with lush trees. We continue paddling until the end of Tronador Branch, where we set camp once again to dine and spend the night.
We have breakfast at our camp before sailing away. With the vigilant peak of Mount Tronador in the background, we can enjoy the majestic view of the mountain after which that part of the lake is named. We return sailing on the opposite shore tacking Flores de León Hill. We pass by Corazón Island and stop for lunch on a beach near Los Rápidos Bay. Then, we continue our expedition plowing through Mascardi Lake between islets and nestled bays until we reach once more Playa Negra, at the end of our journey.
