Expediciones Chile invites you
to come explore the best kept secret of Patagonia, a magical place
where hundreds of glacial lakes are connected
by thousands of kilometers of pristine rivers,
all flowing through the dramatic Andean Mountain
range. Come visit us in the heart of this paradise,
the Futaleufu River Valley.
Be enchanted by its natural rhythms, where condors
soar in southern thermals high above turquoise
rapids thundering through rarely explored granite
Spelius is the founder of Expediciones Chile
and your host. He was a pioneer on the Futaleufu
River and a 1984 US Olympic team kayaker. He
was so was awed by its beauty, challenge and
playfulness he decided he would live here in
Patagonia, Chile. Thus this company was born.
Expediciones Chile was one of the first to run
whitewater kayak and multisport adventure trips
in the Futaleufu Valley. In 1986 Chris pioneered
kayaking on the Futaleufu River and then co-led
the first two successful raft descents in 1991.
Expediciones Chile has been running safe trips
ever since. Chris is now a longstanding resident
of Chile , and
is married with a young daughter. This company
and the concept of blending the best of diverse
cultures working and playing together in this
unspoiled corner of the world has been his dream.
