We had great time rafting. We range in age from 10 - 50 and we all had a good time. Our guide was safety conscience with our kids but allowed for fun. I felt very confident in his skills. Our guide spoke fluent English. The views of the area are beautiful. The girl that helped us with our reservation was also very helpful giving us tips on all of Chile. We all had a great day and I recommend it as an excursion while you're in the Lake District.

The guys are natural comedians but they are also competent and careful guides. Two kids under 10 on our trip had great fun and were well shepherded throughout. On the day we went we had full sunshine and the views of the 5 volcanoes as we rafted down-stream were superb. The river has numerous rapids to give a fair amount of excitement and the opportunity to jump into the river from some high boulders at the river edge just added to the fun. Unlike other reviewers we had the opportunity afterwards to view pictures of our outing sent free via a drop-box. All in all, a great day's adventure and good value for money, definitely one of the highlights of our trip to Patagonia. A couple of pisco-sours at the end of the trip are a great way to relax before the drive back to Puerto Vares.

Ko'Kayak (ko means water in Mapudungun, I learned from our raft leader) was a great experience for everyone on our trip. The river is large enough for the guide to help tailor the trip to the skill level of your boat and maximize the adrenaline while keeping the activity safe. We enjoyed very knowledgeable guides and beautiful views of volcanoes, jumping salmon and the verdant green of Chile's southern glacier carved valleys. I would highly recommend it for anyone visiting this part of the world its a wonderful experience for everyone (on my two trips we had children as young as 8 and adults approaching or in retirement).

My wife, son, daughter and I had a custom 2 day excursion led by Nico in March 2012. The trip was well organized and we had all the equipment we needed. A highlight was paddling like hell through some rapids for 30 seconds, where the ocean met the river. We spent a night at the farmhouse of Juan Carlos and Yolanda, where after a delicious dinner we learned how to play "Escoba", and had a hike up the hillside where we saw an amazing view of the fjord from on high. One of the top vacation experience we've ever had. I have been meaning to write this sooner, but after one year if I can still say this...that's something, right?

We enjoyed this very much. The guys are very good, kind and they take well care of you. Very well organized and punctual.
The only thing to critizise is that if you want the pictures they take, as you can't take your own camera, is that you have to pay full prize of the CD if nobody wants it. If not, you share the full prize with the ones who want it. They should change this, I guess.

Hello!

And Thank you for your recommandation! We are actually looking for another system to take fotos in the river, so that price will decrease. For the moment we work with an independant kayakist that provides this extra service (out of Kokayak). We think about a solution to include the foto service in the original price.
We welcome any idea you can have to lower the price of the fotos!

Thank you again foryour message, we are glad you enjoyed the rafting trip!
Best regards!

The Kokayak team
