We spent 3 days rafting this wild river in this unbelievably beautiful location.

At the very start of the season, Bochinche was the only operator that offered us a multi-day rafting adventure, covering pretty much every main rapid the Futaleufu has to offer: Terminator section, Puente a Puente section, El Macal section.

Our local guide, Daniel, knew the river like the back of his hand and has 10+ years of experience guiding trips all over the world. The river is powerful and the high class rapids are technical, he takes the time to explain each section before we start and really draws you in the adventure.

We had some rainy days and the water levels were high, but the team did everything to adapt our trip to the conditions in a safe way, i.e. reshuffling some of the sections, changing the start time, bringing along extra safety kayaks, etc. I'm confident no other operator would have given us the same experience.

As for safety, every trip had at least one safety kayak and cataraft accompanying our raft.

At the end of the third day, Daniel and Giorgia invited us to their home for a great asado with the other guides. After a couple of days on the river, we definitely felt connected, and truly welcomed.

An unforgettable experience, thanks a lot!

I've been fortunate to go on some of the best rafting rivers in the world and the Fu deserves the #1 ranking. Hard to get to, but worth it. The scenery is beyond stunning, the river fast and furious. The Fu is serious white water and Bochinche has enough safety personnel on the river you have support if you go in. The equipment is first rate, in excellent repair. Giorgia in the office was very helpful with the logistics of getting there. Our guide for 4 days Momo, got us all the thrills we wanted and then some, without flipping the raft, a fine line at 400m^3/s. If you value competent, friendly people, you'll be happy, arrive a stranger, leave as a friend. We stayed at Peuma lodge and would recommend them also.

I did rafting with Bochinche Expediciones. It was unforgettable experience. My guide Nicolas was very professional, made all our crew feel safe and gave very clear instructions. The whole experience was very well organized. Futalefu is a magnificent river with rápids and the color of water I have never seen before. A highly recommended stop if you travel Carretera Austral.
Unfortunately, I had only one day in Futalefu and I didn't have enough time to take the whole day rafting package which would have been ideal.

It was such a great experience. We could book the trips spontaneously.
We did a kayak and rafting tour and really enjoyed it so much! The entire team is super friendly, professional and motivated. Mauri was the best rafting guide we could have wished for and made this experience unforgetable.
A healthy, delicious lunch was included.
The nice guide Kohl taught us the kayak basics and it was really wonderful to see the beautiful nature from the kayak as well.
Go and book a trip with Bochinche! They offer basically everything you can imagine and Giorgia is the perfect consultant.

On our 7-day multi day expedition our university group had so much fun with the Bochinche guides! Every excursion was organized and the professional guides managed the risks well. We loved rafting through the big waves in the Terminator section and Puente a Puente (bridge to bridge). The river walking side trip was a unique experience and we highly recommend it!

Would not recommend this tour company. I booked with them December 18 and let them know I was in Santiago Chile. I was assured that the tour was close to Santiago Chile and I would be picked up for the tour. I booked my tour for January 3. I did not hear back from this company ever. It was not until January 2 that I had to contact them for pickup and then I was told the tour was in Patagonia. I asked them to cancel and refund and they refused. I now have to dispute with my credit card company because of the unethical methods this tour company uses. I would not book with them as the customer service is very nasty and rude and will bait and switch tourists.

Dear Ruth, You booked your activity directly on our website where you can find all the information about our location as well as a page about how to get to Futaleufú and a map that shows the distance from Santiago. You never contacted nor spoke to any of us until 18 hours before your trip booking. We cannot cancel the reservation with such short notice because our booking system does not allow us. We offered to rebook the activity on a different date as well as suggested you tried to get a direct refund from your credit card company and were open to further discussion. We strive to be professional, honest and up front as a travel company and have all the information clearly stated on our website. We cannot be responsible for people’s mistakes but offered our help immediately once you realized that you were in the wrong place.

I’ve had an amazing experience with this rafting company, rafting, hiking, and more. They teach you to appreciate the river but also what you can do. This group has been an incredible way to explore the river and have a fantastic time in Futaleufú. They value having a fun time while practicing safety and respect for the river. I would highly recommend Bochinche for anyone looking for an adventures safe trip down the futaleufú filled with big rapids and great guides.

After a cancelled flight and some frantic rebooking, two kaykers from Scotland arrived in Futaleufu fairly frazzled, with no kayaks and a car with about 12cm of ground clearance, to a town where everybody else drives a pick-up.

Thanks to the lovely people at Bochinche Expediciones we had a better holiday than we have if everything had gone to plan. What an awesome crew - it was a privilege to watch the precision with which you move around on the river. The team are all talented rafters and kayakers, who work really hard to give you a great day out. They know the river really well at all the different levels and run trips with both catarafts and kayaks as safety for the rafts. They are a really professional outfit who go above and beyond!

Thank you so much to Raketa and the team for letting us paddle and hang out with you. Thanks to Carlos for guiding us on our first run, to Mauricio for great lines and multilingual jokes (I will never look at an avocado in quite the same way), to Flo, Miguel, Pablo, Nico, for taking care of us, to Jasmin for the pictures, Georgia and Ida for making it all happen, to Ivan for driving the bus and finally to Lemu and Chilka for supervising the whole operation when not otherwise engaged chasing sticks or each other.

We've still got most of the sections to do, so I'd better start saving up for the next visit!

We went on the full day rafting, and it was incredible. Amazing views, great atmosphere with everyone, and so much fun in the water. Everyone was super nice and helpful, from the girl at the reception that explained everything and answered all of our questions and concerns, through our rafting guide and the safety team. Absolutely recommended!

This was the best time I’ve ever had rafting. The guides were incredible (especially Momo!). I always felt safe with them and they made the whole trip so fun. I really appreciate how attentive to the group Giorgia and Jorge were throughout the whole trip. I think anyone who wants an exciting and beautiful adventure would fall in love with Bochinche. Thank you all so much for an amazing week!
