Rafting at the Futaleufu River is an amazing experience, even in the cold water and non stop rain, the river was pretty full and our class 3 / 4 falls became 5!!!! When we got Quincho fall came across a big wave and I felt out of the boat, no problem at all, I'm used to do things in the... More

Had a wonderful time here in Futaleufu and had the chance to experience rafting for the first time with Bochinche Expeditions located in the plaza. Lovely bunch of guys who also let us rent Kayaks for 2 days at the cabin we stayed at overlooking a lake. Wonderful memories...

My fiance and I spent 10 days on the Futaleufu River with Earth River Outfitters. We had an amazing adventure which included rock climbing, rappelling, white water rafting, white water kayaking, hiking, and camping. The water is the most spectacular color and the rapids are unreal. The river is magical and it's name, which means "painted by gods", is really... More

My husband and I booked our trip with Expediciones Chile. We stayed at the eco camp Tres Monjas spectacularly located on the confluence of the Futaleufu and Azul rivers. The camp is rustic but comfortable and although we were treated like family they managed to make us feel like we were alone with nature. The home cooked meals by Rosie... More

My wife and I went with ExChile in January for a 5-day trip, and they were absolutely exceptional. The camp (Tres Monjas) is one of the oldest there, so it has the best location right on the river with super comfortable private cabins and wood burning sauna. They'll accommodate any number of activities you want to do there -- rafting... More

Our little cabin at the confluence of the Azul and Futaleufu Rivers at the Expeditiones Chile basecamp was a piece of heaven. Rolling out of bed each morning to brush my teeth in the frigid waters of the Futa, I looked up and had a view of snow-covered volcanic mountain tops, blue sky and fresh air :) Breakfast cooked on...

I wish I had more stars to rate my experience on the Futaleufu River with Earth River Expeditions. My friend and I returned from our trip about two weeks ago and I am still buzzing with joy from my adventure and experience of a lifetime. Where do I begin? It all started two-years ago when I booked this trip for... More

This is the best place anywhere for rafting and kayak. Beautiful, pristine whitewater amid a stunning mountain valley. Patagonia at its best. That said, DO NOT book a rafting trip with a company in Futaleufu with a company called Patagonia Azul, Its a poorly run outfit that lies at the drop of a hat. Not the kind of people you... More

We just returned from a week-long rafting trip on the Futaleufu River with Earth River Expeditions. It was the most amazing vacation I've ever been on! There is world-class rafting, beautiful scenery, and fun, friendly guides. The camps were rustic, but scenic and charming, with a definite "luxury" feel. Each day after activities, h'ors d'oevres, beer and wine were served... More
