Chile travel

Rafting

Among green forests, lakes, fjords and inlets, experience adrenaline-filled adventures on the rivers of central and southern Chile. Tumbling down from the Andes to the Pacific Ocean, these deep, powerful torrents offer exhilarating and challenging rapids and are simply ideal for rafting.

Beginners can learn basic rafting skills on low-intensity stretches like the Maipo River, close to Santiago. If you’re traveling in a group, the Claro river in the Siete Tazas National Park is ideal for a safe and exciting family rafting experience.

Need more speed? Then try rafting near Pucón. The Trancura and Liucura Rivers will set your pulse racing as you weave through the rocks and confront the swirling currents of their class 4 and 5 rapids.

If you are a rafting expert, face the ultimate challenge of the Futaleufu River in Patagonia! Set in truly breathtaking landscapes, its class 5 rapids are notoriously long and complicated. With its swift currents and thrilling descents, this river will leave you gasping for breath. The Baker river is considered another ‘must’ for rafting fanatics: its turbulent, turquoise waters make for an unforgettable adventure.
