We showed up late to Futaleufú the night before we wanted to go rafting and Patagonia Elements was able to accommodate us last minute. They were very professional and our guide briefed us in detail on each rapid before going through which proved his knowledge and expertise. The experience was great and the best rapids we've ever been on! They... More

Sweeeeet rafting company. Really easy to talk to setting up a date with them. Short notice was key as im a bad planner, and they spoke English! The guide was really cool, and going solo was no problem here as 6 fit in a boat and it was easy to mesh. Definitely recommend these guys :)

My main concern in these types of activities is safety and for that I am glad I chose Patagonia Elements: In our boat were only 6 Tourists (other provides but up to 8, which already makes it more.difficult if something should happen). The safety net included a second raft and 3 Kayaks doing the rapids everytime before we went through.... More

Christian and his guides were simply magnificent. They showed us a wonderful time while keeping us safe. I can't say enough about how wonderful they were.

We took a raft trip with Patagonia elements, we went on the upper part of the Futaleufu river which was perfect for our three small girls. We got enough white water for some adventure but was very safe for the kids. Our guide was great; She was a native English speaker, and took good care of us. We got a... More

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... More

I have rafted in a number of places around the world but nothing compares to the sheer excitement and adventure of rafting on the River Futaleufu. There are a number of rafting companies but we went with Patagonia Elements on recommendation and was impressed with the number of staff travelling with you in kayaks and a large safety raft as...

The Futaleufu is a large steep patagonian river. It was swollen by a few days of rain. Raging torrent, would be appropriate. The guys at Patagonia Elements were superb; helpful (they arranged my bus ticket because I was rafting when the office was open); the start was delayed so that some guys stuck overnight in Argentina could make it; they...

Patagonia elements met and exceeded all my expectations. Gisella answered all my questions for weeks and months in advance and quite quickly I might add. We were stuck in Argentina the night before our trip and the elements team was willing to move the trip a day back for us. Getting on the actual trip, we had young Christian as... More

I was traveling with my family, and when we got to Futalelfú, a world class rafting river, some of the group wanted to do the rafting, and some were really nervous (mum and sisters, of course) about that idea. Finally we found Patagonia Elements, and was the perfect expeditions, with a terrific safety procedure that really calmed us all. We... More
