Discover the spectacular landscapes of Patagonia when you take our fantastic trip to the Florentino Ameghino dam. You will learn all about how this hydroelectric center is so important for the inhabitants of the region.
Florentino Ameghino Dike
Around 9 am we will collect you from your hotel in Puerto Madryn and set off towards the southwest on a 125-mile journey to the Florentino Ameghino dike.
During the tour, you will witness the stunning beauty of Argentina's Patagonia region. We will pass across extensive, idyllic plains and cross the beautiful mountains of Chubut province.
After traveling for approximately two and a half hours, we will reach the Florentino Ameghino dam. There, our guide will lead us through the tunnels inside the dam, up to the summit of the concrete wall.
Once at the top, you will see two different landscapes. On one side, a stunning emerald lake, and on the other, the red-rock canyon through which the Chubut river flows.
We will also visit picturesque Villa Dique Florentino Ameghino. This tiny settlement of barely 200 inhabitants sits on the lakes of the dike. We will stroll through the pretty streets and you will have the chance to try a delicious regional dish of Patagonian lamb (not included).
With our stomachs full, we will return to the vehicle and take you back to your hotel, arriving at 5 pm.
