The Futaleufu river and the surrounding Lakes Region was the coolest place my wife and I went on our month-long Honeymoon to Chile and Argentina. And a big reason is Earth River Expeditions. They're based out of New York, but guide trips all over the world, with a signature one being on the Futaleufu. This is one of the most... More

For the price I have had much better vacations. The owner tried to duplicate what he experienced at the natahla but its nowhere close in so many ways. 1. He said he had the very best guides...our guide was totally new to the river and flipped the raft, scared everyone, no reason for him to go sideways into a rapid.... More

Had a wonderful time here in Futaleufu and had the chance to experience rafting for the first time with Bochinche Expeditions located in the plaza. Lovely bunch of guys who also let us rent Kayaks for 2 days at the cabin we stayed at overlooking a lake. Wonderful memories...

My fiance and I spent 10 days on the Futaleufu River with Earth River Outfitters. We had an amazing adventure which included rock climbing, rappelling, white water rafting, white water kayaking, hiking, and camping. The water is the most spectacular color and the rapids are unreal. The river is magical and it's name, which means "painted by gods", is really... More

My husband and I booked our trip with Expediciones Chile. We stayed at the eco camp Tres Monjas spectacularly located on the confluence of the Futaleufu and Azul rivers. The camp is rustic but comfortable and although we were treated like family they managed to make us feel like we were alone with nature. The home cooked meals by Rosie... More

My wife and I went with ExChile in January for a 5-day trip, and they were absolutely exceptional. The camp (Tres Monjas) is one of the oldest there, so it has the best location right on the river with super comfortable private cabins and wood burning sauna. They'll accommodate any number of activities you want to do there -- rafting... More
