Houseboat summary

Moored in San Fernando, only 30 km from Buenos Aires, lies Bruma. This original timber boat has been our home for over 15 years now. For 12 years, we take passengers for charter trips over the Luján river. Cruising slowly over the rivers, allowing the passenger to fully unwind and enjoy life on the slow lane. Escape the roaring cities for a while, and come join us on this Argentinian river cruise! 

Houseboat description

This chata, a typical islander flat-bottom boat, has been restyled for passenger use in the year 2000, making it a comfortable place to stay, without making compromise with regards to authenticity. Bruma is a local version of the classic narrowboats that are still very common in France, England and the Netherlands.

Bruma can make trips both day and night. Booking is available for private outings, and long-term stays!

Accommodating four people, there are two cabins and two bathrooms, with a large roofed area on the stern with a BBQ area. Imagine sitting there in a comfortable chair, the smell of barbecue around you and a glass of Malbec in your hand... Enjoy the allure of slow travel, in combination with nice people and amazing Argentinian cuisine.

    Great experience

    We had a unique and beautiful experience. We did a walking tour, had dinner on the boat and stayed the night. The captain and staff is very friendly, and the service is excellent. And the food! Wow! Always of amazing quality and large portions, both breakfast and dinner. We are very happy we made this choice.

    Bruma: A must see in the Delta

    Excellent! Everything was extraordinary: the host, the food, the trip. They had great knowledge about everything and shared it with us. This is a perfect place to sleep or have a charter trip, no matter what season!

    Fantastic Show original

    Everything was great! Staying aboard Bruma gave us a moment to finally relax. The hosts were amazing; the cuisine was excellent; the boat was very clean. I highly recommend anyone to stay here for the night!
