Go whitewater kayaking in Chile with H2O Patagonia. The Futaleufu, (pronounced FOO-ta-lay-oo-FOO) is the world's premiere whitewater rafting river. It winds its way through the lush Chilean rain forest and is corralled only by sleek granite cliffs. The Futaleufu boasts one Class IV-V rapid after the other... if you're ready for exciting whitewater, you're ready for kayaking in Chile on the Futaleufu River.

Adventure travel in Patagonia has never looked and felt so good! Each exhilarating day on the Futaleufu River is followed with relaxation and pampering at our all-inclusive riverside ranch and spa. And just when you might enjoy a break from whitewater kayaking, we mix it up with whitewater rafting, horseback riding, canyoning or hiking in the Andes. Our world-class guides take stellar care of you on this Patagonian adventure travel experience of a lifetime.

In between one adventure and another, guests can enjoy relaxing moments sitting in the hut tub enjoying the view of the majestic Futaleufu River, receiving a massage from one of our on-site massage therapists or simply reading a book by the fire in our Patagonia style quincho.

Day 1: Arrival
Puerto Montt, Los Lagos, Chile

An H2O Patagonia representative will meet you at the Futaleufu airport, before whisking you away to our 175-acre riverside ranch on the mighty Futaleufu River. Once settled, you'll meet your kayaking guides who will prepare you for the week's adventures on the Futaleufu River.

Day 2: Kayaking The Futaleufu River, Inferno Canyon
Futaleufu River, Patagonia, Chile

Today, launch at the ranch and kayak downstream to Inferno Canyon. This section is the perfect mix of gorgeous pools punctuated by stomping whitewater. At the confluence of the Rio Azul, call it a day and return to the luxury and comfort of Antucamay.

Day 3: Canyoning & Rafting
Espolon River, Patagonia, Chile

If you've ever dreamed of being a kid again, canyoning is for you. Canyoning is the hybrid of water-sports and mountain climbing. Rappel down waterfalls, leap into turquoise pools, zoom down water slides, and crawl through tiny caverns. After canyoning, you'll spend the afternoon rafting down the Espolon, a stunning tributary of the Futaleufu.

Day 4: Kayaking The Futaleufu River, Terminator Section, Class 4-5
Futaleufu River, Patagonia, Chile

The continuous Class IV-V action of this section will keep your full attention. Breaks are few and far between until we reach the take-out. Then, it's back to the ranch for some well-deserved relaxation!

Day 5: Personal Day
Futaleufu Valley, Patagonia, Chile

Today, the choice is yours. We give you a moment to rest your paddling muscles while others get a workout. Go canyoning, horseback riding, hiking, rafting, or simply relax in a hammock by the river.

Day 6: Hike & Float Upper Futaleufu
Futaleufu River, Patagonia, Chile

Today, your morning is spent trekking through an awe-inspiring nature preserve along the Upper Futaleufu River. Later, you'll paddle inflatable kayaks back down to Antucamay. Your night is spent dining on exquisite food and relaxing in the spa.

Day 7: Kayaking The Futaleufu River, Pasarella - Casa De Empanadas, Class 3-4
