Huilo-Huilo Plus Pucon Multi-Sport for Non-Kayakers

Why choose Pucon Kayak Retreat for your multi-sport vacation? 

Sadly, much of the multi-sport industry has evolved into booking agencies where their core values don’t easily transfer to the destinations they market. Some try by flying their guides internationally but that doesn’t work either. You can feel the warmth, pride, and ambiance of our riverside property in each building, caring face, and story. These pure connections are not replicable by the cookie cutter booking model. Each adventure, asado, wine tasting, and experience represents many years of networking and building relationships with our Chilean community. We warmly invite you to let us introduce you to one of the world’s glacial, volcanic, and water transporting anomalies. 

“Can my friends that don’t kayak do a multi-sport trip? And which advanced kayak trip do you recommend?” – Adam Taylor, REI Atlanta

Yes, they can. PKR owner David Hughes immediately began customizing and aligning the Fuy Plus Pucon Rivers (for kayakers) with a Huilo Huilo Plus Pucon Multi-Sport Trip. Some day’s the two trips co-align activities with the kayaker group making the trip special to your venture vacation. And your kayaker friends have the option to take a kayak session off and join in on the multi-sport activities.

Choose A Different Adventure Flavor Daily 

Pucons best multi-sport adventuresWhitewater rafting or canyoneering? Have you climbed a vía ferrata (a climbing route with anchored steps and rope safety)? If yes, we’ll throw in a fantasy-like volcanic laguna at the summit. Tandem paraglide over Lago Villarrica, offering vistas of Chile’s most famous volcano. Relax and enjoy the lake breeze and views while the pilot does the work. It’s not all extreme, we’re masters at savoring those guaranteed once-in-a-lifetime experiences with the relaxing. We’ve done our homework scouting the mellow to adventurous weeding out the lame activities so to ensure guests get Pucón’s best of the best.

Relaxing Activities. After a few days of adventuring, we’ll mix in Pucón’s more comforting activities. Tea and pastries at Chile’s most famous hot springs, Termas Geometricas. How about an authentic asado with a sommelier presenting Chilean wines, appetizers, and provisions overlooking Lago Caburgua. Morning yoga to breathe and stretch out those muscles is almost as therapeutic as the massage therapist.

About Valle de Fuy (Huilo Huilo) Plus Pucón Multi-Sport Trip. The retreat multi-sport trip ensures several value differentiators impossible to recreate by cookie-cutter agencies.

Advanced Kayakers with Non-Kayaker Friends. This itinerary was designed when Atlanta kayaker Adam Taylor when he asked if his non-kayaking friends could do a multi-sport trip.

Sustainable Architect Design. The retreat property is sustainably architect-designed to exclusively bring global personalities together around the warmth of fires, music, and riverside hangout areas.

PKR Pearl Experiences. Guests receive the benefits of 20 years of Huilo-Huilo & Pucón exploring and creating meaningful experiences. We’ve done our homework both failing and succeeding. So your trip is guaranteed to balance stimulating with relaxing comforts.

Location. Location. Location. It’s no surprise that large adventure companies are making offers to purchase Pucón’s best riverside property. If Pucón is Chile’s adventure epicenter, consider your Trancura riverside retreat as the lifeblood center of Pucón adventures. Adventures are in every direction, beginning with a minute’s walk to whitewater and fly fishing.

Riverside Pucon Living. Eco-sustainable structures amongst the native forest and whitewater enhance the exclusive intimate feel. Architect designed facilities create an open-air festive ambiance and reduce environmental impact. Nightly fires are mandatory attracting story swapping reliving the day’s fears and blunders or climaxes and successes. It is this spirit of bonding that keeps traveler’s loyal to the retreat atmosphere. It’s no wonder that lifetime friendships and marriages commonly originate and return to the retreat.

Chile’s Adventure Capital, Pucón

For millions of years, glacial compaction and volcanic activity carved and milled Chile’s Lakes and Rivers District. Three volcanos tower above the surrounding Andean snow-covered peaks storing water energy. Within a short distance, the Andes flow enters and exits several lakes and lagunas, becoming warmer and warmer as they approach the Pacific. The views are remarkable by any scale, and the clear Chilean waters are surprisingly warm. It is this series of peaks and canyons, creeks to lagunas, and rivers to lakes that we promise to show you the best of Chile’s fire ring.

About Huilo-Huilo & Valle de Fuy

As you circle to the opposite side of Volcan Villarrica you will discover Termas Geometricas outlying above the other hot springs. Rivers continue to drain to solar warming lakes onward to rivers to the Pacific. At the Argentina border is the narrow Lago Neltume that overflows into the short high energy life span (20 KM) Rio Fuy. Volcan Mocho Choshuenco covered in snow peaks over the valley offering hikes, horse back rides, vistas, and more water to the central river.

Remarkable to the Huilo-Huilo area is the unique Ewok village like architecture. Whether we hike to Las Leonas to watch the kayakers, hike to fantasy like swimming lagunas, SUP board, raft, or horse back ride Huilo-Huilo guarantees remarkable memories.
