FROM NOVEMBER TO MARCH

FUTALEUfÚ

Futaleufú means “Large River” in Mapundungún. It gives name to a small town and to the Futaleufú River, considered one of the top three rivers in the world for rafting and an ideal river for kayak aficionados. It flows into Lake Yelcho and is known far and wide as a paradise for fly fishing as well.

Located in Northern Patagonia, at the confluence of the Espolon and Futaleufú river valleys, the town is approximately 10 kilometers from the Argentinian border.

Futaleufú is known for its lush vegetation, horseback riding, its breathtaking landscape, yerba mate, and “gauchos” –a rich local culture that can also be explored in nearby rural communities–this area has developed a strong tradition of rural tourism. The hospitality of the locals, their pride, calmness and shy demure is infectious and endearing.
