Directions to Rafting Trancura
AboutWith rapids of grade 4 to 5, the Trancura River, also near Pucón, is capable of challenging the most intrepid and seasoned raftsmen.
The route can only be run by people over 14 years old, and begins 15 kilometers away from Pucón in the Complejo Turístico & Resort Trancura. There, tourists have access to a swimming-pool, volleyball and baby soccer courts, changing rooms, showers, children’s playground, scaling wall, “quincho” (barbecue area, generally covered with a thatched roof), and restaurant and bar services.
When rafting you will encounter waves two to three meters high, requiring a strenuous effort to navigate them while surrounded by the deafening noise of the swift Trancura waters.
The run lasts an hour and a half on average, during which time strong emotions and adrenalin will be a constant. Teamwork is highly valued and is indispensable for good performance during the trip.
