CUSTOM TOSATTO & FRIENDS DESCRIPTION (INVITATION ONLY).
This custom program is based off the Pucon Creek Week (III+ to IV+) itinerary with the flexibility to adjust the program to Tosatto and Friends specific river destinations and multi-adventure activities requests. Due to timing it is less likely that runs like the Nevados will flow. Although, other IV+ runs open up, such as the Upper Fuy and the Pucon Classics listings of rivers. It is expected that this river trip will become a hybrid of the Pucon Creek Week and Pucon Classics (III+ to IV+) trips.

PUCON CREEK WEEK DESCRIPTION
Let’s face it. Experienced kayakers need features to boof. No other place provides more clean features for boofing, stomping, tucking, hucking, charging, and spouting than Pucon. If you really want to charge the stouts at optimal levels then you must come during the peak-season NOV-DEC flows.
This kayaking experience is for experienced kayakers ready to improve skills and test yourself on the best runs of your life. Get remarkable creek coaching, access, transportation, Chile’s best equipment, and run Pucon’s drops safely… +PLUS we’ll feed and lodge you riverside on the Rio Trancura. Think you are too good for the Trancura? Unless, you’re running more than Aniol Serrasolses then… think again. Best pros in the world come right to our base to lap high water Trancura. Fun, challenging, terrifying, awesome… all words we use to describe just our backyard run. +PLUS you can match our backyard laps with any number of day trips.
Daily we will have an agenda to run waterfalls and lap challenging rivers safely. We’ll get you out on the Pucon area’s best runs whether that be laps on the Upper Nevados, a park and huck 10 meter special, high water fun laps on the Trancura, or a road trip to a specialty run like the Rio Blanco 10 meter stout.

Are You Ready to Kayak Pucon Chile?
Pucon Creeking is an intense place. Access requires hot hiking typically about an hour before or after your section. It’s a best idea if you come to Chile in shape with your hiking legs ready. Passing and lifting kayaks, strenuous hiking into and out of canyons, and water dehydrating hikes are a mandatory part of the trip. On the water… that is both the fun and easy part.
We recommend before your trip that you kayak often, are part of a normal hiking or workout routine, and who couldn’t lose some weight? Workouts like Crossfit… we love them. Yes, get in shape it will help your confidence as you paddle too.
