Brief Description: Hidden in a forest, along mile long Terminador Rapid, the camp’s broad 50 foot bluff affords a birds eye view of the surging Futaleufu river as it spills over giant, sculpted, white granite boulders creating over a dozen waterfalls in a mesmerizing arrangement of colors from turquoise to white. VIEW "Terminator Camp overlooks the churning 1.5km long, class 5 Terminador Rapid and features hand-built wooden cliff dwellings, flush toilets, hot showers and possibly the world's most welcome sight after a day on the river: an 18 person wood-fired outdoor hot-tub. Shortly after slipping into the soothing, 100 degree water, a guide appears with cold Escudo beers, a Chilean cab sav and a plate of home-cooked pizza slices. It sets the scene for a week of indescribably good food that's miraculously conjured up in the middle of the wilderness."

"From a photographer's perspective the stone couch is extraordinary. You feel almost like you're suspended in a boat above the ensuing chaos below, yet there's a strange and wonderful tranquility within the contours of the smooth marbleized granit." VIEW
