Pucón Creek Week


For decades, expert kayakers have been drawn to Chile’s clean waterfalls, basalt canyons, and pristine rivers. Surrounded by Andean peaks along the Ring of Fire epi-center, the volcano multiplies drainages. That means more 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.

If you are an advanced kayaker keen to go expert this is your trip. Pucon’s rivers and creeks provide the best advanced instructional grounds bar none. Just ask the world champions alum from World Class Academy and Keeners. Did we mention we host them too?

Trip Itinerary for Pucón Creek Week


Day 1.

Arrival to Temuco (ZCO) between 11 AM – 5 PM OR Drive from Claro Plus Trip. Boat outfitting and welcome introduction. We’ll take an easy afternoon warmup lap & skills assessment as your welcome to Chile!

Day 2 – 7.

River options depend on various water levels. Topping our priority list is Nevados. This classic gem is so good we tend to drop everything to go play on the Nevado’s canyon of boof fest, slides, and three 20 foot high waterfalls. This is not always possible, so based on the group paddling goals and levels, we’ll have morning discussions the day’s running options, safety protocols and kayaking techniques.

Day 8.

Early final breakfast and packing. In the AM, you’ll get your last morning of a favorite river lap. Lunch is availible with a shuttle to the airport departure flights from Temuco Airport (ZCO) scheduled between 11 AM – 5 PM.
