A packraft is an inflatable boat that is light enough to carry in a backpack. This way you can combine two exciting activites, trekking and rafting. 

In Ushuaia you can packraft on the Río Olivia, located a few kilometers east of the city center. The trek starts at the foot of Mount Olivia, in the area known as "Mosca Loca". From there, with all equipments packed, you'll have to cross a bridge over the river and keep walking until you get to the starting point of the packrafting. After a briefing and the preparation of the boats, you are ready to enjoy the river descent.

Another tour starts at the Carbajal Valley. From this location, you must hike towards a lagoon calleed Laguna Mariposa, and once there, you get on the boats and paddle until you reach the waters of Olivia river. 

Both packrafting tours have an estimated duration of 5/6 hours. For more information, please contact the tour operators.
