It seems every kayaker and adventurist in Chile has to solve the transportation challenge. Pucon Kayak Hostel invests in a fleet of 4 wheel drive off road terrain vehicles well serviced with quality tires and racks to keep you on the river. 

Local Pucon River Shuttles

Look dangerous. It was. We fired all of them. After proper time to learn from their mistakes we hired them back. Even our fearless owner / leader who thought this show was a great photo op. Photo credit Casey Jones. 

Many kayakers show up to Pucon Kayak Hostel simply because we are the only area river shuttle option. Shuttle services solve a serious kayaker stressor – getting on the water. With PKH’s remarkable location as the take out for the Upper Trancura and put in for the Lower Trancura living within the PKH community is the easiest way to get on the water.
