Curtis, my NOC kayak instructor mentioned Chile offers numerous beautiful rivers in breath-taking landscapes, that are safe, full of white water, and promise amazing days of paddling. That is all it took for twelve of us, ages 21-60, to venture to Chile. Our skill level varied from Class II to Class IV. One of the strongest paddlers was my son Jack (21 years) joined us with the hope of running more challenging sections and running a few waterfalls. The instructors at the retreat skillfully, graciously, and energetically accommodated our varying kayak skills, abilities and interests. Even guiding a few members of our group down in a raft when the river was more than they felt comfortable kayaking. Experiencing Chile kayaking was even more memorable and special with our private group of paddling friends.
