You are invited to the warm hospitality of Pucon Kayak Hostel.
Owner David Hughes led international whitewater kayak tours for 15 years seeking best destinations. It was Chile that offered stable infrastructure, the most and best river runs with lakes and lagunas, and a safe and inviting culture. The idea to kayak Pucon Chile magnetically pulled David to invest. Soon after purchasing a Rio Trancura riverside base the land was eveloped for schools and groups seeking adventure.
Non-kayakers are choosing PKH for their Pucón stay?
Now, PKH offers logistics support for day trips. Most popular for non-paddlers is a Standup Paddle (SUP) Board and hotsprings combo. SUP is the most fun you can have on a gorgeous waterway so easy to learn a 5 year old or even a dog can do it. Whether you want to kayak Pucon or have fun on the beaches exploring the waterways and lagunas you’ll enjoy the comforts of PKH.
Provide a Unique Ambiance
While, most hostel owners build more beds to make more profit David had a bigger plan focusing instead on the experience. The ideal was to create a warm space for guests to hangout, store and dry gear, and function. So, with one of Chile’s finest architects they first designed the quincho.
Quinchos are structures designed specifically for the Chilean asado. Asados are social gatherings typical of the culture sharing select cuts of meat almost always near to a warm fire. The quincho is where you share stories, eat your meals and relax next to the fire with a pisco-sour or vino tinto. Like no other location the quincho brings people together.
The investment of the artistic center piece quincho gives guests a warm inviting ambiance. Guests are attracted to the riverside land, experience and choose to return for the experience.
