Darwin Experience by Patagonia Dreams

The Santa Cruz River has been the route of one of the most emblematic explorers of Patagonia: Charles Darwin, and Deep Patagonia recreates that trip aboard kayaks.
In this multi-adventure excursion we depart in 4x4 along Route 40 to the Santa Cruz River and from there, after a technical talk and equipping ourselves with dry suits, we start rowing downstream.
In the course of navigation we will see geological formations and a wide variety of fauna, elements that inspired Darwin is his mythical journey through these lands.
After 15 km downstream we arrive at Estancia El Rincón, where we wait for the expeditionaries with lunch on the banks of the river, and then return to El Calafate.
