Week of Rivers (II to III+)

January 4 - 11, 2020

Week of Rivers Chile for club boaters and kayak groups.

This trip was designed for club boaters and white water kayaking groups that have a range of skills from beginner to intermediate to advanced kayaking seeking the same kayak trip. It’s rare that one trip can offer proper features with safe and challenging development for such a wide range of skills. We can even accommodate non-kayaking spouses and friends with our multi-adventure activities. Daily trips go out to separate rivers, with separate coaching instructional teams. Nightly, we meet back for appetizers and dinner sharing stories of conquering rapids and waterfalls around the fire.
