wondering if anyone knows a place to go river rafting pretty close to BA. or any other fun adventures. i'll be there from the 8th til the end of the month.
Buenos Aires is not a good location for outdoor activities. It is absolutely flat and a huge city on an extremely wide river. But it isn't a rafting river. There are many places in Argentina for outdoor activities but distances are very long so most entail at least an overnight bus.
I believe you can do kayaking in the Tigre delta and that is a train ride away. It makes a nice day or weekend out of the city.
There is only one place to raft in Argentina, it's south of Barriloche. It's a fun day, but only class III and IV, so don't expect the thrill of your life. I did raft the Nile few weeks ago and i was not the only one thinking the same...the best part of the day was actually the food!
