Kayaking Chile’s Rio Fuy.

Kayak Chile Upper Fuy Leonas CascadesIt’s like a real-world Ewok fantasy land. We’re serious, a giant Ewok architected spiraling tree hotel is the center-piece of one of Chile’s most outrageous eco-parks. Structures in this area kind of match the magic of the forests, lakes, volcanos, glaciers, and canyon drainages. Every advanced kayaker that comes to Pucon makes the day trip to the Rio Fuy. But few realize to stay multiple day, and just how great the short lived Rio Fuy is. Lago Neltume is a narrow lake collecting annual glacial melt guaranteeing even the lowest of water levels class III to IV creeking. Within 12 miles the Fuy makes it’s way through a handful of canyons and three river sections before it drains into Lago Neltume.

Kayaking Upper Fuy, III to IV+.

Middle Fuy with 50 Footer, III+ to V.

At lower late February flows the Upper Fuy dries and flows drop to manageable levels and epically fun for advanced creekers. Low levels give us plenty of eddies to hop, more portage options, and slow the rapids. For solid river runners this is fast fun paced river running.

Middle Fuy below 50 Footer, III+ to IV+.

Trekking down the Middle Fuy Canyon you get the sense of, well for lack of a better word… awesomeness. Then you arrive to waterfalls veiling down the lush green walls. Its hot, so jump in and cool off in the turquoise pool. About a 5 KM stretch of busy class III to IV boofing lies ahead of you. At high flows this section gets serious. But at January levels it is an excellent canyon experience below the more aggressive dangers of the Middle Canyon 50 footer section. We’ll bee-bop our way down boofing endless boulders. Take a break now and then to enjoy the canyon, and before you know it we are at the Bridge takeout. Or some prefer to continue paddling the Bridge to Bridge section.

Kayaking Pucon Rivers.

Backyard Pucon laps. Our back yard Trancura offers the best class V and IV+ in the area. We’ll mix Upper Trancura, Upper Palguin, and other local laps as a warmer upper for our Fuy roadtrip.
