Rios Patagonicos

For several years, the association Regard sur L’Aventure has been organising scientific exploration and sportive expeditions.
In 2018, the “Rios Patagonicos” expedition took 15 canyoneers to stride the immensity of Chilean Patagonia, in search for rivers and waterfalls. Their goal: explore untouched territories, spot and open over 30 canyons, on a unique territory, where canyoneering discipline is close to non-existent.
For some, “Rios Patagonicos” is the opportunity to go on an expedition for the first time. For others, more skilled canyoneers, the occasion to share their experience, at times on a difficult terrain.
In the heart of Patagonian glacier valleys, all gather around a same desire: share a sportive and humane adventure.
A trip which will thrill the expedition members, awake fears in commitment, and group cohesion.
