The Futaleufu River valley in southern Chile is a window into the past. The pace of life has changed little since the gauchos and huasos settled there a century ago. An authentic and genuine experience unfolds as we visit Patagonian farms, ride horses with the locals and enjoy their friendliness and warm smiles.
Our riverside retreat provides a wilderness experience in rustic-luxury. This apparent paradox is dispelled as your guides pamper you and invite you to relax with a massage and soak in the wood fired hot tub overlooking the river! You'll stay in private tent-bungalows overlooking the aqua blue river. We taste a variety of South American flavors and feast on the bounty of fresh fish, meats, vegetables and cheeses in a Patagonian "Galpon." We further enjoy free flowing, delicious Chilean wine overlooking the river during lingering sundowns from the "Sunset Bar." Our camp has a wood fired hot tubs and hot showers. We have two peaceful massage studios and the indoor and outdoor yoga decks are situated on a bluff with a clear view straight downstream! Each day adventure abounds as we explore every nook of the valley - by raft, horse, kayak, or mountain bike.
Join Bio Bio Expeditions, the Futaleufu experts, in one of the most beautiful and exciting places on Earth - Patagonia!
