Pucon Kayak Hostel trips were designed to optimize weather and water levels at our favorite destinations in Chile. But we realize they aren’t for everyone. Top reasons for custom trips:
- Your group loves a trip itinerary but want to do it at a different time. Or dates don’t work with your schedule.
- You want a trip during our off-season.
- You have specialized needs or want a family-friendly agenda.
- You are part of a school or a large group and need to be sure we can accommodate your collective requirements.
- You desire to piece together an off-season Chile road trip such as fall colors (April) and hot springs tour.
Pucon Kayak Hostel has been running custom trips for groups, families, individuals, couples, schools, and businesses for over ten years. If you have a dream itinerary, we have the existing infrastructure, resources, and staff to accommodate you. Not sure what you have in mind for your trip? We can help with that, too.
Top Questions Asked About Custom Trips…
#1 “Can we do your itinerary at a different time?”
Groups interested in a PKH trip or itinerary that does not match their availability is common. With our infrastructure we may have the ability to accommodate your time frame.
If you have the group interest then we’ll do our best to customize your trip.
#2 “What about family trips? Is PKH kid friendly?”
The short answer is yes but as any parent knows “kid friendly” covers a broad range. So, we prefer to customize “family adventures” to each family based on ages, activities and needs. Need a baby seat, legos, baby sitter, tutor, sandbox, kid movies, kids kayaks… Email us.
#3 “We’re a school group that has to meet red tape criteria such as insurances, hospitals, academic needs and professional certifications. Can you help us develop a program or adhere to our prerequisites?”
Did you know our owner actually founded and directed a high school for kayakers and to this day directs Patagonia Study Abroad. We are use to academic requirements such as semester itinerary consult, academic curriculum development, certification courses, cooperative programming, cultural logistics, and hiring tutors and professors.
