Patagonia Eco Camp
at Tres Monjas


Tres Monjas Interactive Map

One of the most magical spots in the Futaleufu river valley of Patagonia Chile is our riverside Eco-Camp called Campo Tres Monjas. Our Campo is located at the confluence of the Rio Azul and Rio Futaleufu under the towering Tres Monjas peak. You will be immersed in the sites and sounds of nature yet sleeping with the comforts of our cozy and secluded RiverNest cabins.



Perfectly nestled at our private put-in and/or take-out for two of the Futaleufu River sections, the Futaleufu eco-camp Campo Tres Monjas is isolated and self-contained. All you can see for dozens of miles around is a sprinkling of farms, the rivers and the mountains. Standing sentinal over the camp are the three clustered, volcanic spires known as Las Tres Monjas (Three Nuns Peaks). To arrive at this secluded peninsula, surrounded by two rivers, you will cross the smaller Rio Azul at the confluence in a canoe ferry leaving the vehicles and the world as you know it behind. From here you can enjoy our private eco-trails for trekking, paddling, mountain biking, horseback riding, fly fishing or just exploring. Cross the Rio Azul on our double canoes and find yourself on the Futaleufu Valley trail, which you can trek or ride along the Futaleufu River all the way to the Village of Futaleufu.

Out of all the lodging options with Expediciones Chile, the Campo experience offers the greatest connection with nature. It is as if you are on a wilderness river trip but with creature comforts that you do not find in settings like this. You will be assigned a bed in a two person RiverNest cabin in a dramatically beautiful setting refined to perfection with a dedication to environmental consciousness. There are a few natural tent sites for those that are kayak season passers.



This is a strategically located launch pad for the Futaleufu River and all the adventure activities this valley has to offer. In fact you can kayak or fish just a few feet away from our RiverNest cabins. Our beach is the put-in or take our of most of our rafting and kayak runs.

"When you think you have seen it all, you arrive at Tres Monjas and the definition of a beautiful setting has to be re-written."
Paul Oz - from Canoe Focus Magazine


"Campo Tres Monjas is simply spectacular, a sensory overload. Sleeping in those little RiverNests and being lulled to sleep by the Futaleufu river it is the definition of relaxation."
Jeff Lawerence - NYC


The Eco Camp at Tres Monjas is refined outdoor living. It is situated in a natural grove of trees and flowering fuchsia bushes providing beauty, shade and natural shelter. Here you find your private RiverNest cabins neslted down a secluded soft footpath. These barefoot trails interconnect two sunny, white-sand beaches with hammocks for relaxing, a secluded skinny-dip beach, a dining cabin with sit-down dining and solar power, a wood-fired sauna, plenty of hot water for two secluded outdoor showers, two indoor showers, flush toilets, the massage room, and a drying shed for river gear that includes a storing area for your personal gear.



An Andean Spring provides the sweetest, cleanest, freshest water you will ever drink. Our chef prepares dinners of salmon, roasted chicken and Chilean specialties with vegetables harvested from our own organic greenhouse. We have our own private label wine served with dinner.

“Imagine enjoying the best whitewater day of your life, taking out on a white sand beach, a short trail to the cook cabin where snacks including fresh guacamole and pisco sour or beer are waiting for you. Hang up your gear and take a sauna before joining in the conversation of apre’s river life at Campo Tres Monjas.”
Randy Philpot - Advanced Composites Paddles and Oars- SLC Utah

Chris Spelius describing how he came upon Eco Camp at Tres Monjas:

The first time I paddled the upper gorge of the Futaleufu, I was emotionally drained from paddling Infierno, Zeta, and the Throne Room by myself. I then came to a tight gorge, which appeared even narrower than the others. It was late in the day, and I did not want to get excited again. To my great relief, this short gorge had no drop and the canyon opened up immediately. A river entered from the right, a stream from the left, Tres Monjas peak towered over me, and a white sand beach beckoned just below the confluence. I had never seen a more beautiful setting in my life. I thought, “Oh My God! This is the place!” I camped on the beach and, went exploring my campsite. I found a rock cove where I said, “I will build a shower here one day.” The next morning I caught a rainbow trout on my first cast. In the first several miles paddling downstream from this beach, I passed more perfect play spots than I'd ever seen. I said to myself, “I have to figure out a way to create something at that confluence!”

Bring your family. Just because you are a river fanatic doesn't mean you can't take an awesome vacation with your non-paddling loved ones! Our kayak trips and our multisport rafting trips stay here. Kids love to play on the white sand beach and dip in the pristine waters of the Rio Azul. The youngest guest we've had was only six months old! So far, the youngest person to paddle the Futa was 15 years old, but we've had a 10 year old and 76 year old paddle the Espolón.



We invite you to share our small piece of paradise at the river's edge!
