Directions to Rafting Claro
AboutLocated in the Seven Cups National Reserve in the Maule region, it is renowned for its waterfalls and beautiful natural surroundings, trees that are unique in the world and a privileged view of the Andes Range.
It is also possible to view the seven waterfalls and respective basins that give the place its name. Another attraction is a visit to the “Valle de las Catas” (wine-tasting valley), a lovely area in green surroundings located inside the “San José de Frutillar” farm, where you can immerse yourself in 800 hectares of beautiful landscapes, paths, native forests, river, waterfalls and mountain views.
The river is classified as grade 3, i.e., intermediate level. The rapids have moderate and irregular waves that can be difficult to avoid and can even sink an open canoe.
For this reason, it is necessary to be able to make complex maneuvers in rapid currents and also maintain precise control over the craft in narrow passages. The big waves and strainers are easily avoidable. Prior exploration is recommended.
