Kayaking

One of the best ways to enjoy Chile’s superb natural environment. Paddling with specialist guides and equipment, you’ll find more than 1,200 rivers of differing complexity to choose from, and calm lakes and lagoons with breathtaking surroundings reflected in their crystal-clear waters.

Alone or in pairs, this sport is popular from the central region to Patagonia, with multiple routes of varying intensities among magnificent landscapes and abundant native wildlife.

Test out your skills and balance first on the calmest sections of the Maipo River in the Metropolitan Region and then hit the waters of the Maule Valley. If you’ve some experience under your belt, you might tackle the rushing Trancura River close to Pucón and enjoy the wooded landscapes surrounding the lakes at Caburga, Calafquén, Conguillío and Riñihue.

If you’re confident in your kayak and skilled in the water, then head for the world-famous Futaleufu River on the Carretera Austral, or the Baker River close to General Carrera Lake; tricky, adrenaline-filled routes with challenging rapids and unexpected waterfalls.
