Whitewater Adventure Trips in Chile

Looking for a unique and authentic experience? Join us for a paddling adventure in one of most truly breathtaking places on the planet – Chile. These unique and active trips include paddling beautiful rivers, culture, cuisine and so much more.

Depending on your craft of choice, your paddling adventure includes whitewater kayaking, packrafting or standup paddleboarding the incomparable rivers throughout the gorgeous Lakes District or in pristine Patagonia.

While these trips are focused on paddling, we also have you covered when we’re off the water. You’ll have the opportunity to dive deep into local culture and learn about the people, flora and fauna of this land. Interested in hiking, biking or horseback riding? We can organize rides into the Patagonian Andes, to crystal clear alpine lakes or up a big volcano. You’ll enjoy authentic Chilean food, sip regional wines, spark meaningful conversation by the campfire and relax under the Southern Cross. The sky’s the limit!

We offer weeklong all-inclusive paddling trips, plus private guided trips on the limitless rivers around Pucon, as well as the incomparable Futaleufu in the south. Want to plan a bucket list trip with your closest friends? We work with local outfitters, chefs and companies to custom design the perfect trip for you.
