For over 25 years Earth River has pioneered rafting trips around the world, discovering classics like Patagonia's Futaleufu River. Chile rafting was in its infancy when we made the first raft descent of this remarkable natural treasure in 1991. From that time on, our specialty has been running safe, multi-camp, wilderness expeditions; a rare reprieve from an often harried daily life. In order to meet this challenge on the Futaleufu, which is too demanding for baggage boats, we purchased four remote, wilderness camps along the river which are limited to 16 guests.
Our guides are the cornerstone of Earth River. They are among the most competent and accomplished in the industry. Between first descents, exploratories and conservation awareness trips, Earth River challenges their guides more than any other outfitter. They have been hand-picked to be able to meet these challenges. They are also special people as is exemplified in the "Personal Reflections" link beneath each guide's bio.
