Visit one of the most famous lakes in Argentina and discover some amazing, surreal rock formations, when you take this trip to Atuel Canyon and Valle Grande.

Atuel Canyon and Valle Grande Trip

Get ready for a fantastic day in the nature of Argentina. We will pick you up from your hotel in Mendoza at around 7 am before setting off on a three-hour journey to Valle Grande.

On the way, we will cross through the captivating city of San Rafael, admiring its main landmarks and monuments. We will arrive at the famous Valle Grande reservoir, a large lake which receives the Atuel River. There you will have an hour of your own free time to stroll along the idyllic lakeshores, take some pictures, and have something to eat (not included). 

Then we head into the Atuel Canyon, where we will discover some amazing rock formations which have been shaped by the wind and rain throughout history. You will find natural sculptures that resemble lizards, enchanted cities, armchairs, and even monks.

Next, we head to El Nihuil Dam, which forms two artificial lakes that generate electricity - you'll be amazed at its size!

Our trip finishes, returning to the hotels of Mendoza where we arrive between 6:30 pm and 7 pm, depending on the traffic. 


The tour includes pick up from hotels in downtown Mendoza. If you stay more than 1.2 miles from the center, we will provide you with a meeting point.
