Dear Futaleufu trip Participant:
Thank you for choosing Earth River's Futaleufu base camp trip, based out of the remote and spectacular Mapu Leufu Cliff Camp. Perched on a 100 foot bluff, overlooking miles of the turquoise river, your home base for the week is truly one of the most enchanting river camps in the world. This camp includes 2 miles of private shoreline and is accessed by a beautiful 20 minute hike along a clear side stream with waterfalls and deep pools.
Every effort will be made to make your trip a safe and enjoyable experience. This hidden link section of the web site was designed to help you prepare for your trip. Enclosed you will find information on equipment, weather, travel and other necessary information. Please read it carefully. If you have any further questions please contact our office.
This Futaleufu "base camp" trip takes place during our winter and passengers should make sure that they remain in good physical condition. This trip is an “active” vacation, as you will be paddling rafts and inflatable kayaks, canyoning, riding horses, hiking and mountain biking. Even if you choose not to do the activities offered, you should still be reasonably fit.
