Day 1: Early in the morning we set off from Bariloche heading to Mascardi lake on route 258 with the van. At the lake we start our mountain biking tour for about 15 km on pavement, then we take the road to Steffen lake. At midday we have lunch by the lake. Then we change our biking gear for the kayak and we get ready to start paddling in Manso river. After 4 hs of cruising we stop for camping by the river. we have dinner and a friendly chat by the bonfire before we get to sleep.
Day 2: In the morning after breakfast we start our biking tour by the Manso river to the Chilean - Argentine border line, crossing the river over swinging bridges. At midday we have lunch by the river. After resting for a while we continue until we reach the border line, this is a very interesting point because the line crosses in the middle of a garden of a settler. On our way back we stop for a tea with homemade cakes with forest fruits of the area. Then we return to Bariloche.
