PUCON CREEK WEEK DESCRIPTION
Let’s face it. Experienced kayakers need features to boof. Pucón surrounded by Andean peaks and multiple volcano drainages provides the world’s best clean features for boofing, stomping, tucking, hucking, charging, and spouting. If you really want to charge the stouts at optimal levels then you must come during the peak-season, NOV-DEC flows.
Pucón Creek Week is for experienced kayakers ready to improve and test skills on the best runs of your life. Get remarkable creek coaching, access, transportation, Chile’s best equipment, and run Pucon’s drops safely… +PLUS we’ll feed and lodge you riverside on the Rio Trancura. Fun. Challenging. Terrifying. Awesome. All words describing ust our backyard Trancura laps. +PLUS Trancura laps are so convenient that they are great to match with a local park and huck. But only if you live at our riverside base.
Daily we will have an agenda to run waterfalls and lap challenging rivers safely. We’ll get you out on the Pucón’s best runs whether that be laps on the Upper Nevados, a park and huck 10 meter special, high water fun laps on the Trancura, or a road trip to a specialty run like the Rio Blanco 10 meter stout.
Runs may include. Salto Blanco; Upper & Lower Trancura; Upper Nevados; Salto Coilaco; Upper, Middle, Lower Palguins; Upper or Lower Fuy; Maichin Canyon; Upper or Lower Puesco; and more options than you can run in one week.

Based on the group paddling goals and levels we’ll have morning discussions the day’s options, safety protocol, and techniques.
*PCR Test Wednesdays. As a service to guests requiring PCR testing we’ve arranged for health officials to visit the retreat each Wednesday. Results are expected in 24 to 48 hours.
