I am originally from Mendoza and I have been to Atuel Canyon several times but this year took my partner and I enjoyed this scenery from a different perspective.

Wonderful tour. We drove all the way. Started with the Nihuil damm and then did the hole of the road. There are many miles of un paved road. It as a hole day tour. It is worth stopping at different sites because the view is simply spectacular. At Nihuil little town there is just this 1 little restaurant for tourists.... More

Fantastic and absolutely stunning drive, it takes a day but it is really worth it. It is easy to do with a normal car if you drive carefully

I recommend this place to anyone going to Mendoza. The route you have to drive to access is amazing and have amazing views and when you arrive to the Canon you will realise this is an amazing place to spend a summer afternoon.

Being Argentine and haven´t travelled to many places around the world, I've never imaged that such an amazing place existed not far from my hometown, Buenos Aires. It it is the Cañon de Atuel. Be ready to be speechless during your whole visit!

Awesome place, with nice views and a good road, but there was a big stone blocking the way so we had to do a u turn and go back. But I really recommend it.

Visiting this spot during the low season was a great experience. The landscapes around the canyon also change so drastically and so quickly, this aspect is absolutely breath taking.
