The Liucura is our coldest water run. Yet, the summer days are so hot we bet you jump in a time or two to cool off.
JAN 23, Day 4 (TUE). SUP Rio San Pedro (Hop in Whitewater Raft for the Rapids)
The Rio San Pedro is a trip highlight as you SUP board out of Lago Rinihue where lake transistions to estuary into river. The first two KMs are easy and glorious. Yet, rapids pickup with intensity. So, we bring a raft for paddlers who want to hop into the raft for the bigger rapids. Or the brave can try to paddle through the warm turquoise waters. Soon the rapids calm down and SUP boarders can hop out of the raft back onto their boards. For many this will be your most glorious day of SUP boarding ever.

AM – Trancura Delta to Lago Villarrica. The Trancura Delta is where the river fans out into bars with slowing currents before they enter the broadening lake. This estuary is full of bird and fish life. Most spectacular is paddling into Lago Villarrica with the grandest of Volcan Villarrica vistas. We’ll picnic and relax on the beach.

The vistas are spectacular as you warmup in the clear warm water. The trip begins mellow on flat water and progresses all the way to class II+ rapids. The moving water means boarders travel faster down river and are more likely to fall off. Don’t worry. We’ll teach you how to quickly drop to your board for balance and have safety protocols for you to learn. Rio Tolten is refreshing and a must for games, swimming, and even jumping out of tree into the river. Rio Tolten flows all the way to the Pacific Ocean… so, don’t miss the takeout.
