The “Descenso Colectivo Ruta del Palena” is a trip that is made in kayak, raft, and cataraft from the mountains to the sea, through pristine water and gorgeous Patagonian landscapes. The route encompasses 240 navigable kms where participants descend through lush rivers, enjoying paddling through places where they can gaze at the beauty of the evergreen forest and observe the warmth of the people who live in harmony with this watershed up until it flows into the sea. The event concludes with a closing spectacle and fireworks.
