Highly recommend Patagonia Elements for white water rafting on the Futa river. We did the Azul-Puente route - very well organised, good equipment and most of all very experienced and fun guides & safety crew. We felt completely safe & really enjoyed the rafting. Would highly recommend.

El rafting de puente a puente en el río Futaleufú fue una experiencia magnífica. Soy una persona que no sabe nadar y las actividades de este tipo me generan algo de ansiedad. Me animé a intentarlo junto a mis compañeros de viaje, y nuestro guía Pedro fue el encargado de hacernos sentir en confianza y seguros en todo momento. Esperamos volver. Graciaaas!

The bridge to bridge rafting section in Futaleufú river was an amazing experience. I am not able to swim and this kind of activities make me feel a bit anxious. However, I took the chance and tried it with my friends. Pedro, our guide, was the one in charge of making us feel confident and safe the whole time. We're looking forward to come back. Thanks!!

We had an incredible experience doing the bridge to bridge rafting with Patagonia Elements. From our first interaction with the team until we said good bye everything was handled at the highest professional level. The team is extremely experienced and doing all they can to provide a wonderful experience. The equipment we received was great.
The river is beautiful and we highly recommend this trip with Patagonia Elements.

Great time paddling the Esponol River on Duckies (inflatable single kayaks). Franco gave us great instructions on how to navigate the rapids and cheered us all on. He guided us for several hours and kept a close eye on us in case we needed any help. We felt safe and had a great time with him as our guide. The pic is of a flat section- I couldn’t take pics in the middle of running rapids, but we had several. It was a good river.

We were very impressed by the excellent and professional approach. We knew the risks of this activity but felt in safe hands... There was no skimping on taking the time to brief us very well. We did the bridge to bridge section which includes a highest level rapid. Our raft flipped, but we all knew what to do as we had been so well briefed. Everyone enjoyed the experience and felt it was unforgettable.

Rafting has allways been one of my dream activities on vacation.
Futaleufu river is absolutely beautiful and fast. Patagonia Elements helped us having the rafting experience of our lives, allways radical but safe with our "captain" Cristian and with perfect pictures taken by Pablo so we may never forget!

We were sold the bridge to bridge half day trip which we were told had several class 4 rapid and one class 5. Upon entering the river we were informed by the guide that we would be "taking it easy" meaning we are going to skip the single class 5 and many of the class 4 rapids.

At the largest class 4 of the day, some of the boats took more challenging lines through the river while our boat completely skipped, opting instead for class 2 ripples. VERY DISSAPOINTED.

The only reason I am providing two stars is because the river is truly beautiful. My suggestion is to find a other company, but I won't name names in fairness.

I took a rafting trip down the Futaleufu River with Patagonia Elements. Wonderful trip. Exciting ,fun, and controlled. David took time instructing us on how to react to his commands. Really...a great fun trip.

There is the Futalelufu River and then there is Patagonia Elements TWO. Of the reasons why I encourage any lover of nature to make the effort to come to this part of the world ...especially in late Jan ..... We may have been lucky but the weather was GREAT for our entire four day stay.
The Futaleufu River is unusual for most of the rivers I've seen in the world.... The clarity of the water, the turquoise color, the speed of water flow which creates the large number of class 4 and 5 Rapids and its size.....this is not a small , fast moving stream but a real River....and let's not forget the majesty of the mountains that it flows through.

In coming to Futalelufu how can anyone arrive and not go white water rafting..... Even if you are in your late 60s, have never gone rafting before and you are not the most capable swimmer.... Shelve those fears and sign up with Patagonia Elements for an experience of a lifetime.

Now granted I've never gone white water rafting before so I can't compare it.... Other then to say we had our share of excitement.

There was great emphasis played on safety , which is a must....I cant pay Patagonia Elements enough compliments.
