You are picked up early this morning and head out of the city across the Maipo Valley. Arrive to the river base of either San Alfonso or San Jose where you meet your guides who will give you a safety briefing and get your equipement set up (wetsuit, helmet, paddle jacket and life jacket). Listen to a safety and technical instructions talk before setting out. The Maipo River flows between steep canyon gorges in the heart of the Andes mountains.

Beyond expectations! Then again we weren't sure what to expect. Lovely stay at the lodge, met other like-minded travelers (many had their trips planned by Adventure Life) and the owner was a gracious hostess. It felt like you were one happy family, visiting with a favorite aunt.
