Experience an action-packed kayaking adventure on Southern Chile’s Futaleufú River! Join NOC on an exhilarating vacation that offers the best in classic river kayaking on the renowned Futaleufú. This trip combines gorgeous water, monumental paddling, and extraordinary riverside lodging. Enjoy it all from a deluxe riverside camp overlooking the turquoise blue waters of the Futaleufú River as it surges beneath Patagonia’s snowcapped mountains.
The put-in is just steps away from camp and upstream from the non-stop action of the bridge-to bridge section, and just downstream from the world-famous Terminator rapids. Guides are available to coach you along and help you improve your moves from playboating to offering navigation on the best lines. As if the scenery and world-class kayaking isn’t enough, guests can partake in a number of other activities like inflatable kayaking the Rio Azul, fly-fishing for Patagonia rainbow trout, hiking pristine valleys, and mountain biking a mix of ox-trails and single track. Kayak all day and then relax back at Base Camp. This dream trip is rounded out by the offered amenities. With safari-style tents nestled into the cliff overlooking the river, you’ll enjoy down comforters and mattresses, hot tub and massage, and be served a hot cup of coffee or tea delivered to your door each morning while anticipating a day of epic adventures.
