The Futaleufú River is one of the many highlights of Patagonia’s astonishing scenery, and I will lead you on this wickedly fun and enthralling half-day of rafting down the river, with the rapids, tranquil sections and surrounding natural environment all adding up to a brilliant and memorable day on one of the best rafting rivers in the world.

The Futaleufú River is located in Northern Patagonia, on the Chilean side, and is world-renowned for being one of the best whitewater rafting rivers on Earth. Its clear and clean water is fed from glacial snowmelt and it has a river gorge that drops down to 1700m.

Meeting in the town itself of Futaleufú, it is then a short drive down to the river, where we will run through all relevant safety information and dispense all the needed gear. During the subsequent few hours there will be thrills, spills and highlights galore, with the truly awesome and fun rapids of Mas o Menos and Casa de Piedra.

The rapids and routes we tackle are designed for maximum fun. We take all the necessary precautions to make sure your trip is both enjoyable and safe.  Additionally, there will be ample time throughout the trip to relax and admire the absolutely stunning scenery and raw natural beauty of Patagonia either side of us, with the majestic Condors flying above us, adding to the epic setting.

After we finish, we hope you will have fallen even more in love with this part of the world, as well as gotten hooked on the highly addictive activity of rafting.

We offer this program at 9 am and at 3 pm.  Choose the best time for you and book now to spend an exciting and vibrant day rafting through the beauty of Patagonia!
