Me and my family spent about 2 weeks in Argentina and 2 nights (3 days) in El Chalten, but this was the highlight of our trip. The wonderful guides, who spoke English perfectly, gave us watertight suits that would allow the majority of our bodies to stay dry and warm (ish) . They kept us safe with one guide in the boat and one guide in a kayak taking pictures, watching from a distance. We had great views of the mountains and the near by glaciers. The only thing was that our hands and feet were very cold so if anybody is thinking about doing this awesome excursion, I would recommend bringing very warm (or thick) neoprene gloves and some warm wool socks. They had some snacks and warm drinks in the car on the way back to the town which was greatly appreciated. The water was extremely cold because it was melted glacier water. The guide called, "Lolly", made the trip very fun by always being exciting and keeping us on our feet (literally). If you are thinking about bringing a action camera, AKA a GoPro, I would highly recommend bringing it because they have a few helmets with mounts for the cameras and if you are looking for a another view point, Lolly can put the GoPro on his head to film you and your family. They make sure that you know how to paddle, what to do in every possible situation of falling out of the boat, and the names of every rapid and rock formation along with the names of the mountains. Overall, this trip is for people who are willing to do some physical activity in the upper body. I have two kids the ages of 13 and 15 who were the perfect ages for this activity.
