FRED WIEDERMAN, CO-FOUNDER OUTWARD BOUND

“I’ve been on nearly all the challenging, commercially run rivers in the world and I must say that Earth River and the Futaleufu stand out in my memory as the very best of the best. The scenery could not be grander, nor the water swifter, clearer or more pristine. The spectacular camps were superior, the food a camping gourmet’s delight and the river guides and their safety precautions of superb caliber. It was my good luck to select the Futaleufu and Earth River Expeditions for my “swan song” as a river runner.“

Fred Wiedemann, Co-founder Outward Bound, Veteran of nearly 50 outfitted trips

“Eric Hertz and Robert Currie have devoted their lives and their company’s resources to saving some of the world’s last great white-water, wilderness rivers.".
“The absolute mastery of Robert Currie guiding in the back of the raft made every element of the Futaleufu river seem heightened, perfected, colorized, almost virtual."
"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."
