Upper Futa Límite: (Class
2 rapids, 9 km, half-day family rafting, kayaking, one-day fly fishing).
From the Chile and Argentina border to the town of Futaleufu is the uppermost
section of the Rio Futaleufu that we run. Put-in at the border and float through
a spectacular valley. One side of the river is Argentina 's Parque Alerces and
the other is the protected Chilean national huemul, a small South American deer.
Take-out at the edge of the town of Futaleufu, just minutes away from our Centro
Aventura Futaleufu lodge.

Infierno Gorge: (Class 4/5, 22km, Full
day Rafting, Kayaking, Fly Fishing, Trekking, Horseback Riding)
the Centro Aventura Futaleufu, a trail takes you to the vertical
black basalt walls that
line the gates of the Inferno Canyon and to the overlook of the “Zeta” and “Throne
Room”. Here you may have an opportunity to see from foot, horseback, or
bike: these wortld famous class V rapids. This is the most demanding, and committing
section of the Futaleufu. To raft or kayak this section, one should previously
run the heart of the Futa section, “Corazón” and have met
the required qualifications. We put-in at the bridge on the Río Espolón
and soon meet the confluence with the Río Futaleufu. At the Gates
of Infierno, we enter the Infierno Canyon with several serious and continuous
class 5 drops.
This is very serious world class rafting"
Just below the canyon, the river widens with spectacular views of the Las Escalas
Valley, with the river winding through it. To see this valley from the river
or the trail is a trip back in time. A mountain bike ride and horseback riding
trail crosses the Futaleufu on a swinging bridge and climbs out of the valley
through a native forest winding back to the village of Futaleufu. A dramatic
one day loop.
our special fly fishing trips we put in at the Las Escalas
valley and fish this rarely fished stretch. This is something many people
about the Futaleufu River.
six miles of moving, gentle productive water, the river returns
to its wild side
and we encounter the "Zeta" and "Throne Room." These
are two of the most ferocious rapids on the Futa, which even the whitewater
guides take care of the portage at Zeta while you walk"
the “Throne Room” are rarely fished, deep pools with gravel
bars. Our Dream Team guides are experienced in lining the boats through
and below them the rafts await you. The Futa valley trail continues all
the way from town on the left side of the river to the confluence of the
river with the Futaleufu. A full day ride or an all day trek or hike for
a fit person.
Throne Room is one of the most dominating Class 5 rapids on the planet"
the fly fishing polls of the Throne room we find the "Wild Mile" non
stop Class 3/4 whitewater action that takes us to the confluence with the
Río Azul, and ClubFuta at Campo Tres Monjas. For Fly fisherman we
have horses waiting beneath the Throne for the 50 minute ride to the CondorNest
Tres Monjas mountain looms over the valley to river left. On river right,
the turquoise water of the Rio Azul flows from the ice-capped glaciated peaks
that form at its headwaters. An inviting white sandy beach marks the entrance
of ClubFuta at Campo Tres Monjas.
Río Azul (Rafting, Kayaking, Fly- Fishing, trekking)
This river runs into the Futaleufu on river right shore next to our camp. This
glacier-fed river can range between 600 to 2000 cfs, depending on rain and snowmelt
in the mountains. This is a great warm-up for the Class 3/4 kayaking trips. The
Azul is a great alternate river for when the Futaleufu is too high. Technical
and defined, the Río Azul takes its name from the aquamarine colored water.
This is great fish habitat for the native rainbow trout.
