For over 25 years Earth River has pioneered rafting trips around the world, discovering classics like Patagonia's Futaleufu and Canada’s Magpie. Chile rafting was in its infancy when we made the first complete raft descent of this remarkable natural treasure in 1991. From that time on, our specialty has been running wild, safe multi-camp expeditions; a rare reprieve from an often harried daily life.

In 2015 we began running the first multi-lodge expeditions on the Futaleufu River. Truly the “World’s Wildest, Most Comfortable River Trip.” these lodge trips have a 3 - 1 guide to client ratio and are limited to just 12 guests, the smallest group size in the industry. The three lodges are remote, comfortable and secluded. This is the ideal trip for those individuals that want to experience the incredible Futaleufu River Valley without dealing with the sometimes fickle, northern Patagonia weather.

“Eric Hertz has devoted his life and his company’s resources to saving some of the world’s last great white-water, wilderness rivers.".
"Earth River is the premier river runner in the world. Their staff includes the finest guides to be found."
“Earth River is more than a great whitewater outfitter. Their contributions have made a real difference in our efforts to preserve some of the world's most beautiful rivers in Chile and Canada."
"I want to personally thank Earth River for helping us stop the hydro-electric projects on our land preventing the destruction of one of North America's last great wildernesses.
“I’ve rafted with Eric Hertz down some tough rivers—the Futaleufu in Chile, the Colca in Peru. He's one of the best in the business—obsessed with safety."
