Rafting on the Futaleufu

Rafting on the Futaleufu

This eleven-day excursion in Patagonia, Chile features incredibly blue water, breathtaking alpine scenery, rapids ranging from Class III to Class V, and luxurious permanent camps with river-carved stone hot tubs and wonderful off-river activities.

The Futaleufu River has a few sections of Class V whitewater that you may choose not to do. A beautiful horseback and hiking trail that follows the river opens the trip to anyone, regardless of experience, because you can choose to walk around any of the big rapids.

A couple of days are spent doing an array of other activities including hiking, horseback riding, rock climbing, rappelling, and canyoneering in our private camps. This is a wonderful, multi-activity destination in an exquisite place.

We have arranged this trip at the urging of many of our adventurous guests who have wanted to see the river but preferred ECHO to be involved in the trip.

We are working with our friends at Earth River, the most experienced and established outfitter on the Futaleufu River. We really like the way they have developed their extraordinary camps, and we are good friends with many of their guides.
