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

This was one of the best river trips ever! We were very well taken care of by Josh and Marcela, who complemented each other to make our stay very memorable. They kept us busy on and off the river, yet with private time to relax on the beach. The comfortable riverside lodge was more deluxe than we had imagined, we... 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

This was one of our more memorable vacations that can be described with these adjectives: wild, exciting, beautiful, rugged, fun, adventurous, challenging, satisfying ... and many more. Earth River's guides are really the best in the world, and make sure we were always safe and satisfied. Our group of 15 ended up being full of positive, interesting and respectful people,... More

My two friends and I are still amazed at the fun time we had rafting with Futaleufu Explore last March. It was by far the best week out of our two month tour of Patagonia, surpassing all our expectations. Everything was well organized, from helping us to arrange flights and bus tickets, which made our travels before and after much... More
