The Futaleufu River is known in whitewater circles as one of the most exciting and challenging rivers in the world. It is an exhilarating whitewater power storm, with a life force of turquoise champagne like water. Riding the spine of this river as it flows through the isolated portion of the rugged and glaciated Andes in Chile is an experience that is un-paralleled. You will feel the direct connection with the incredible power of nature in Patagonia. The river's name is derived from a local Mapuche Indian word meaning "big big river" and it lives up to its namesake in every respect. It has earned its reputation as The Greatest Whitewater on Earth!!!
