this was an awesome trip that was pretty much perfect in every way. the futaleufu river is beyond beautiful, the accomodations were very comfortable, the food was without exception deliciously prepared and presented by a professional chef. the guides are clearly some of the best river guides in the world. this trip was a blast from start to finish. not to mention the "extras"- wood fired hot tubs, open bar , yoga in the morning,interesting people.highly recommended to anyone who loves rafting or kayaking and wants to experience one of the best rivers in the world. plus the weather was amazing - january- bright blue skies 80s during the day 50s at night and light out until 10 at night. perfect.
