Whitewater Kayaking

Futaleufu Kayaking

The Futaleufu river is a world class kayak destination and the Hosteria Rio Grande adventure lodge is perfectly set-up to help support  your  kayak vacation.  We welcome kayakers who have outgrown the camping scene.  Let our dry Futaleufu hotel be your refuge away from the river, where a warm bed, hot shower, breakfast, dinner and après-kayaking bar await you.

We will provide you with a secure place to store your kayak and dry your river clothes.  With our high-speed internet you will be in instant contact with the outside world where you can upload the day’s photos, chat with friends or make reservations for other destinations on your kayaking itinerary.

At the bar and in the restaurant you will come in contact with other paddlers who are kayaking the Futaleufu, offering the opportunity to set-up shuttles and plan runs together. Within ten minutes walking from our hotel in Futaleufu is the Rio Espolon play-wave, where you can tune-up your skills or paddle well into the evening. In summer the sun does not set in Patagonia until  after 10:00pm.
