Whilst on a cruise around the horn, six of our group decided if we are visiting one of the most adventure opportunistic areas of the world, we were going to take advantage! We booked the Petrohue rafting adventure through Princess cruise lines. After disembarking the tender, we were whisked into a small van with 12 of us from the cruise. Franco was to be our guide and savior during this wonderful rafting journey! The drive to the river was along the largest lake in Chile, and afforded magnificent views of the stunning landscape along the way. After an about an hour, we donned our wetsuits and began the exhilarating adventure! It is recommended to wear a bathing suit under your clothes, as they have convenient changing rooms to put the wetsuits and booties on. The river was not freezing, but definitely cold enough that the wetsuits were necessary. When we arrived at the river, it was one of the most breathtaking scenic rivers encountered, surrounded by the beauty of the snow capped volcanic peaks and lush vegetation. Some of the areas were reminiscent of Jurassic Park. A HUGE wow factor. The rapids were class 3, which means you will be buried in water, which makes it so much fun! Franco, our expert guide, was truly knowledgeable and provided all the safety measures needed to ensure a safe and fantastic journey. Having river-rafted all over the world, Franco was definitely a top-notch guide, along with having a terrific personality. Our six friends had such a terrific time, and could have done this trip over and over again if given the time. Caution: This trip is easy, but you must be a confident swimmer, and in decent physical shape, particularly at the area where the trip ends. This trip is NOT a float, but well worth the time and the money for sure! Thank you Franco, for a fantastic time!!!!
