Rafting The Rio Futaleufu

The Financial Times has a pretty cool article up about Rafting the Rio Futaleufu River in Patagonia. The river is renowned for it’s wild white water, treacherous drops, and amazing Class-V rapids. Nick named “The Fu”, it’s real name means Grand Water, this is one of the epic white water excursions you’ll find anywhere.

The river runs through the Chilean Andes all the way down to the Pacific Ocean, with some sections not being run until as late as 1985. Now, guided tours take experienced paddlers for a thrilling joy ride. Sounds like an awesome expedition. I need to learn to handle my kayak a lot better before doing something like this though.

Thanks Gadling!
