Directions to Rafting Futaleufu
AboutThe Futaleufú river is located in the midst of the indomitable Chilean Patagonia, and is considered one of the best torrents in the world to practice the sport, with rapids reaching up to grade 5. It is common for the rapids to be extremely long with waves on the descents and inevitable pitfalls that require fast maneuvers, all under pressure.
The river also offers a perfect combination of the two most important elements for practicing rafting: swift currents and “just right” slopes.
Prior exploration is recommended, although in many parts it is impossible because of the complex nature of the sector. Swimming is very dangerous and rescue is also difficult, even for the most intrepid and expert rescuers.
But it is not only an ideal place for people who seek the thrill of danger, it is also spectacular for nature and adventure lovers. The mountains, rivers, lakes and forests are an ideal scenario for walks, mountain-biking, fishing, horseback riding and exploring.
