DESCRIPTION:

The Petrohué River is the outlet of the Todos los Santos Lake, running through the southern rainforest all the way to the Reloncaví Fjord, surrounded by snow tipped volcanoes like Osorno, Calbuco and the impressive Puntiagudo.

We first practice our rowing techniques before taking on our first rapid “Ciao Seco”. From there we go through a 10km trip, with rapids class III and IV like “Ese”, “Los Pollos”, “Queso Suizo” and “El Nadador”, among others.

After 2 hours we reach the final point, where the dressing rooms are located.
