Kayak Chile’s Fuy Plus Pucon Rivers
Multi-Sport for Non-Kayaker Friends Option.
Tentative itinerary at bottom of page.
By request this trip logistically aligns advanced kayakers and their non-kayaker friends. Non-kayakers will have a separate premium multi-sport adventure trip. Some activities like our Rio San Pedro, Termas Geometricas, and other options are designed to share the day’s experiences together. And kayakers have the option to skip a kayak session to participate in a specific multi-sport adventure. Nightly, both groups come together for appetizers, dinner, and fire to share stories of their epic experiences.

Fuy Plus Pucon Rivers.
Fuy Plus Pucon logistically aligns two of Chile’s best whitewater regions during the optimal flow month of January. Rio Fuy flowing approximately 20 kilometers from Lago Neltume to Lago Panguipulli has a short and energetic life through three runnable volcanic basalt canyons. The Upper Fuy’s waterfall wonder-water is our primary target, a 4 KM waterfall paradise. Clear blue water, boofs to charge, and of course “Las Leonas.” Las Leonas is a series of three waterfalls where tourists gather for photos of the 25 footer, 12 footer, and 16 footer.
About the Fuy Area

Middle Fuy Canyon Below Class V Section (III+ to IV+)
While, the Middle Fuy Canyon is aggressively high in January we have an access point below the class V section. This run out section is a euphoric fast paced boof fest. Trekking down the Middle Fuy Canyon you get the sense of awesomeness. Then you arrive to waterfalls veiling down the lush green walls. Its hot, so jump in and cool off in the turquoise pool. About a 3 KM stretch of busy class III to IV boofing lies ahead of you. At high flows this section gets serious. But at January levels it is an excellent canyon experience below the more aggressive dangers of the Middle Canyon 50 footer section. We’ll bip-bop our way down boofing endless boulders. Take out at the bridge or continue down the easier Lower Fuy section for more vistas and boofs.
