Atuel Canyon & San Rafael

Full Day

Nature, Adventure, Culture

Duration: Approx. 12 hrs. Shared service with tour guide. Highlights: San Rafael - Atuel Canyon - Valle Grande - El Nihuil. To the South, Route 40 crosses the Mendoza river and reaches the Uco Valley, rich in vineyards and top of the line wineries. Continuing to Tunuyán, San Carlos and Eugenio Bustos, it leads to Pareditas, where this little adventure actually starts, turning to the Southern Oasis at San Rafael. This is one of Mendoza’s most productive counties, with a high development of agriculture and wine industry. The plan is to visit the city of San Rafael and its main streets and then head south to the Valle Grande dam, a stunning engineering work and one of Mendoza´s most popular tourist attractions. After lunch, some optional activities are offered such as rafting, hiking or taking a boat tour. The tour then continues to the Atuel Canyon, a geological fault with imposing shapes and amazing colors. These natural wonders present figures such as Wax Museum, Rivadavia’s Seat, the Lizard, The Monsters, The Enchanted City, The Beggar and The Hanging Gardens, just to name a few. The hydroelectric plants on the Atuel river can be seen on the way to the Nihuil dam, a classic spot for sports and fishing. Back to the North of the province, the tour goes by the Galileo Vitale dam and the 25 de Mayo village (founding place of San Rafael) to return to the city of Mendoza.
