Amazing Argentina and Futaleufu Rafting Trip!
Arrive Buenos Aires
We arrived into Buenos Aires exhausted after our red-eye flight and thankful for the waiting transfer. Headed to the hotel for a nap and then took an evening walk around the town.
Tigre bike and kayak + Dinner Tango Show
Took the train to the northern suburbs and hopped on lightweight bamboo bikes to explore the residential neighborhoods. Immaculately kept yards and well painted homes contrasted sharply with litter strewn sidewalks and poorly kept roads. The traffic and pollution was relatively constant until we reached Tigre. This lovely suburb boasts well …
Spent most of today in the airport. Aerolineas was running delayed (a common occurrence we learned) so we waited ~ 4 hours for our flight. Arrived exhausted for a quick dinner of hamburgers and pasta at an English style pub. Later that evening, we headed back out to try the "best" ice cream in Argentina at a gelato shop before heading to …
Transfer to Futaleufu Camp
We met the group and set off for the full day drive to camp. We stopped in Esquel for lunch and several travelers ordered the largest hamburgers I have ever seen. At the border, the Argentinians were jokesters, teasing us playfully before letting us pass relatively quickly. We walked 100 yards into Chile where they carefully checked our bags for …
Meeting the Fu!
Wow! Phenomenal day of hiking, whitewater rafting, and kayaking! Woke late because we missed our wake up call and slept for a heavenly 11 hours. Raced to grab a quick breakfast to go, passing the hikers enroute.
We joined them for a lovely walk to a viewpoint over the Terminator, Class V rapid that we would be taking on later in the week. …
Bridge to Bridge Rafting + Kayak Clinic #2
Today we rafted the same "Bridge to Bridge" segment of the Fu from yesterday with the addition of two class V rapids at the bottom, Mas or Menos and Casa de Piedras. Apparently we took the hard route through Casa de Piedras as we didn't back paddle efficiently enough to take the line our guide had planned.
I've learned that Class V …
We took a break from rafting today to go horseback riding. The trail wound through the woods under low hanging branches, through mud, up rocky hillsides and along a steep drop off beside the river 100 ft below. It was definitely the most challenging riding that I've done! Fortunately, the horses were sure-footed, though they still stumbled on the …
Today was great fun! We took a short ride to the Rio Azul, a small, crystal clear, calm river that feeds into the Fu. We boarded 1 or 2 person inflatable kayaks that were MUCH more comfortable than the hard shells (no need to squeeze your knees under and rotate your hips out). They were also easier to get out of quickly without a heavy skirt to …
Inferno Canyon and the White Mile
Today is the day that we have been preparing for, a series of Class V rapids known as Inferno Canyon. We started out on the Rio Esplanon near at the headwaters of the Fu to get warmed up and practice our commands before starting the more treacherous section.
The Class Vs were not hugely exciting as they were again quite technical so the best …
