Introduction

Our 8-day trip is one of a kind, and will make sure you never want to leave this paradise.  We make sure you don't have to worry about anything except your own paddle strokes from the time we pick you up and until you leave. We provide it all, from airport pick-ups to fantastic meals, from showing the lines and best surf-spots to breathtaking views hiking or horse-back riding.  We will make sure you experience the "Futa-life" in all its glory. Simple as that. 


Kayaking

The river has sections ranging from class II-V, and all the major rapids have either sneak lines, meat lines, or portage trails around them. We have the experience to make sure you enjoy the river the most - and our passion for the valley and the rapids will make sure you get excited - every day!  Our guides will help you with friendly tips about your paddling skills if you want - or simply guide you down whatever line you feel comfortable every given day.


Camping and living

Our base camp, Soria Moria, is situated in a remote sector of the river - with no electricity nor cell phone service. We built this unique log-house before we had road access, and with no power tools. A lot of sweat, tears and laughter has gone into this place and provides endless good stories and a very special atmoshphere. The best part about base camp is the views - and the tranquility. We see no lights from other houses at night, only the mighty Milky Way and a forever burning camp fire. We share meals together in the main house, and it is our common space to relax, read a book, sip a cup of coffee or a glass of red. The sleeping quarters are placed on the lower half of the property, in a natural forest in close vicinity to the river. You need to bring your own tent, a thermarest and a sleeping bag. Some of the sleeping spots have a platform with a roof over, others use the natural protection of big trees to create the most beautiful of sites to pitch tents. We have an incredible outside hot shower under a roof,  with views of forest and waterfall, and even a small bar for some social drinks.


Transportation

You only have to book your flight to Argentina or Chile yourself. The rest we take care off!

We provide pick up and  drop off at the nearby airports such as Chaiten, Esquel, Futaleufu or Palena and will also help you to book those tickets if needed.

For the  daily kayaking trips we provide all the transportation - you do not need to worry about a thing.
