Are you ready for the adventure of a lifetime? The Futaleufu River in the Patagonia region of southern Chile is the setting for non-stop fun. Set amid stone towers, snow-capped peaks and old-growth forests, the mighty "Fu" offers some of the best whitewater rafting found anywhere in the world. The options are endless: raft, kayak and canoe; hike and horseback ride; try your hand at a Tyrolean traverse and zip line; cliff jump and swim; rock climb, rappel, and canyoneer; and end each day with a relaxing soak in the hot tub!

Inn highlights: Our welcome dinner is at the Mi Casa Hotel in a quaint fishing village. Then it's six nights at our private camps - from hand-hewn cliff dwellings at Terminador, Cave and Mapu Leufu Camps to tree houses at Tree House Camp - all within a stone's throw of the mighty "Fu". Relax each evening in the soothing waters of the camps' hot tubs.

Your Itinerary

Days 1-2: U.S. - Santiago - Puerto Montt-Chaiten

Upon arrival enjoy some free time to explore the fishing village of Chaiten before meeting for our welcome dinner. (D)

Days 3-4: Rio Futaleufu-Terminador-Cave Camp

Put in on the Futaleufu for our first taste of Class 4 whitewater. A short hike delivers us to Terminador Camp. Another day of rafting brings us to fabulous Cave Camp, with open-air cliff dwellings set above Zeta Rapid and a natural stone hot tub. (B/L/D).

Days 5-6: Tree House Camp- Cave Camp

The day begins with an exhilarating Tyrolean traverse across Zeta Rapid followed by a hike to the top of the canyon and Tree House Camp, with eight tree houses perched 35-feet up in a grove of old-growth giants. After a hike back down to the river the following day, a 250-foot zip line ends with a plunge into a blue pool. After lunch we strap on climbing harnesses to climb and rappel off of Tower of the Winds. Or you can try your hand at trout fishing, go for a horseback ride, or just relax at Cave Camp. (B/L/D).

Days 7-8: Rio Futaleufu - Campo Mapu Leufu

After some more incredible rafting, try canyoneering down the 400-foot deep Rio Blanco slot canyon. Or take a kayak lesson on the pond at Mapu Leufu. The final day--"Big Friday"-- is one of the most impressive commercial rafting days imaginable and those with enough adventurous spirit can conquer the Class 5 Terminador. (B/L/D).

Days 9-10: Chaiten - Puerto Montt - Santiago - U.S

After a final hike to a glacier, it's time to say goodbye to the "Fu" as we board our charter flight to Puerto Montt for connections home. (B/L).
