To begin, test your skills on top of a raft in low intensity currents such as the Maipo River, a few kilometers from Santiago. If you want to live the experience in a group, the Claro River, located in the Seven Cups National Reserve, is the ideal place to share the adrenaline of a family descent.
Do you want more speed? Then try this discipline in the rafting resorts near Pucón. The Trancura and Liucura rivers will accelerate your heart rate in their class IV and V rapids, where you will dodge rocks and face the current.
If you are an expert in the field, your great challenge will be to cross the Futaleufú river in the heart of Patagonia. Surrounded by a breathtaking landscape, its class V rapids are characterized by their long length. With good flow and exciting descents, this torrent will leave you with your tongue out. Another must-see is the Baker River: its turbulence and turquoise waters will make this adventure an unforgettable memory.
There is no doubt that Chile is a privileged spot for white water rafting. The reason is its unique geography, which makes the country ideal for plunging down world class rapids.
There is no doubt that Chile is a privileged spot for white water rafting. The reason is its unique geography, which makes the country ideal for plunging down world class rapids. From the Andes Range, the second highest mountain range on Earth, swift-flowing rivers descend to flow into the Pacific Ocean not many miles from where they originated. As a result, the Chilean rivers are short but very intense, ideal for rushing down them on an inflatable raft.
