H20 Patagonia's adventure vacations can be designed for families who enjoy a multitude of outdoor adventure activities with a bit of luxury. These family adventure vacations combine whitewater rafting, hiking, kayaking, and horseback riding into one fun-filled week of adventure travel in beautiful Patagonia, Chile. This is not a strenuous week of constant activity, but rather a mellow array of adventures for both young and old. The activities can be scaled up or down depending on the age group and ability of family members.
More than a family rafting trip, H20 Patagonia will make sure you're exposed to all that the Futaleufu Valley has to offer: whitewater rafting on the mighty Futaleufu River, which contains sections for all levels of ability and experience; hiking in the Andes up some of the Futaleufus' beautiful aqua-colored tributaries; and, horseback riding across beautiful valleys past the base of snow-peaked mountains. In the evenings, you'll return to the luxuries of Antucamay, sharing your day's stories by the glow of a crackling fire in the rustic quincho while enjoying exquisite meals carefully prepared by an international chef. While the kids go off to explore the tree fort or visit the ranch animals, you can relax in the steaming hot tub or enjoy a massage!
Patagonia, Chile provides a plethora of opportunities for adventure that the whole family can enjoy, and H2O Patagonia ensures that all the details are well taken care of so that your experience is a pure mix of fun, comfort and relaxation!
