We will meet for an informative talk and equipment check. Then we will access the lake to have a talk about rowing, sailing and safety techniques. We will equip the kayaks so we are ready to set sail. We will cross the Rincón stream and then turn south and we will go, along the shore, towards the Machete stream, where after 10 kms we will set up camp in a desolate beach. There, I will teach you how to make pizzas while enjoying the sunset over the lake.
After breakfast we will disarm the camp and get ready to set off. So, we will continue the journey heading south, bordering the lake bays and discovering its vegetation and fauna. If we have time, at the mouth of a stream, we can try to catch some trout for dinner. We will pass through some fields of ancient settlers who still live from the cows and sheep rearing. Before sunset we will arrive at the Arroyo Coluco where we will spend the night in a beautiful protected beach. This day will be very long with 20 kms of rowing.
Last day in the water. We will have the most challenging day ahead if the weather conditions are not good. Today we must face the wind and the waves coming from the Blest stream and the Tristeza stream, which we must cross to reach our destination in Bahía López. Maybe it’s time to put into practice those techniques that you learned days before. We will also sail through the Fossil Archipelago, crossing the beautiful Punta Millaqueo and the mythical Centinela Island where Perito Moreno and his family are buried. Finally, we will celebrate the success of the journey with some beers in Berlina!
Villa La Angostura
AAGM mountain guide from Argentina.
I was raised in Buenos Aires where I used to go sailing and fishing with my family during weekend and holidays. As a teenager I began traveling to Patagonia with friends to fish, hike and camp. Years later I became a rock climber and mountaineer since I wanted to asses more summits and amazing views.
At the age of 23 and after gathering a good amount of fun ascents and traverses along Patagonia, I decided to fully commit to a life in the outdoors. As a result I started my carrier at N.O.L.S. – National Outdoors Leadership School in the U.S.A. and Chile. I lead rock climbing and mountaineering trips in Wyoming, Utah, Idaho, Alaska and in Aysen (Chilean Patagonia) for nine years.
In 2009 finally settled permanently in Bariloche and focused my guiding work on the Lake District Region. Here I discovered new styles of guiding and service which were good to experience and helped me grow in this profession. Now I am able to mix my background on outdoor education with the guiding world and create unique experiences for active travelers.
I take advantage of every season of the year, going mountain biking and sea-kayaking in the summer, ice-skating on alpine lakes during the Fall, back-country skiing during the Winter, rock climbing and mountaineering as soon as the Spring makes it way through the snow.
