Pucon Classics III+ to IV+

December 29, 2018 - January 5, 2019

Trip Description

This trip is for kayakers that have solid fundamental skills and basic to advanced creeking / river running experience. Instruction and rivers will match with advanced ferries, boofs, the art of flight, waterfall pitch and directional control, eddy piercing speed control. We’ll seek more advanced runs including waterfall and boof sessions. Pucon Classics trips are designed for the kayakers that truly desire to progress their kayak skills and explore rivers. Your home base is located on two sections of river allowing you to relax and kayak lots. Our instructors know every feature on the more than a dozen nearby sections. This group will spend less time camping and traveling and more time relaxing and paddling. 

This itinerary is designed for experienced kayakers with solid roll and river running experience. Less experienced kayakers are advised to consider our Pucon Classics II to III trips.

  • Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner
