Dear Futaleufu multi-camp, wilderness Participant:
Thank you for joining Earth River on this unique journey, the only wilderness, multi-camp river journey in Patagonia. 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.
Your expedition has been limited to 16 guests. Although we can accommodate more clients we have chosen not to. Smaller groups lessen waiting times during multi-sport activities like climbing and rappelling and insure the intimate nature of the expedition. Often trips fill up and it is difficult to replace a late cancellation. Therefore we urge you to purchase trip cancellation insurance to protect your investment in case you are unable to join the expedition.
The Futaleufu 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, climbing, rappeling, hiking and possibly mountain biking. Even if you choose not to do many of the activities or the two hour hike to the Tree House Camp, you should still be reasonably fit.
