Known of course for its famous wine producers and year-round sunshine, Mendoza is a great place for relaxing pursuits. However, if, between sampling gourmet food and wines and lazing by the pool, you want a more adrenalin-packed experience, then river rafting on the Rio Mendoza is an exhilarating tour to try. Head west towards the mountains on the road to Chile to the mountain village of Potrerillos in the heart of the Andes which is a one hour drive. Meet your guides and start with a safety briefing and collecting your equipment. Then join your river guide for a fun rather than challenging grade III section of river that runs 14kms from Pueblo del Rio lasting around 1.5 hours. This is a graded as a moderate level of difficulty and you don’t need any prior experience to give it a go.
