There are 3 regions of Chile on every kayaker’s bucket list. The first is in the north, near the capital of Santiago. This region is home to the infamous Rio Claro, also known as Siete Tazas (or the Clean Waterfall Capital of the World). The next region is the most diverse whitewater mecca and surrounds Pucón including many of the classics we run daily from the hostel: Trancura, Palguin, Nevados, Fuy, San Pedro, Maichin, Liucura, Coilaco, Blanco, and many more. The final region is one of the most remote and oft-dreamt about locations in all of kayaking — the legendary Futaleufu, deep in the heart of Patagonia. Sound perfect? It is! But there’s a small catch. Due to weather, driving distance, and complicated logistics – it’s impossible to hit the best rivers in each region during a single two-week trip. So what should you do? Join us on a kayak adventure trip and explore one region at a time! Our trips are designed to optimize weather and ideal water levels for each region.
