Trip Description

The Rio Truful Truful is a gorgeous volcanic class III stretch promising epic wins. This trip is designed for the class II, III and III+ kayakers seeking to improve river running, control kayak on ferries, master combat rolls and navigate rapids on river sections and features safely allowing kayakers to progress. This group will spend less time camping and traveling and more time relaxing and paddling. The stability of less travel and luxury of a variety of nearby rivers means you’ll have more time to get personal coaching and still explore. Instead of focusing on just getting down a new river this program will place emphasis on your skills and progressions you desire.  Pucon provides the rivers and features. We provide the great coaches. You provide the strokes.

This itinerary was designed after the Pikes Peak Whitewater Club and Chicago Whitewater Association joined PKH for trips and PKH owner David Hughes volunteered with the Carolina Canoe Club. Like most whitewater clubs the skills varied as much as the paddler’s lively personas. This trip allows groups with various skills to be on the same trip. Yes! We love to teach beginners too.
