Patagonia is renowned for its crystal clear lakes and rivers as well as dramatic mountain scenery. We base our adventure from our luxury lodge on the banks of the Rio Futaleufu. You will have the opportunity to learn from world class instructors on the magnificent Lago Espalon, a short drive from our camp. From your basic strokes and eskimo rolls, to river running techniques we will cover all you need to know whatever your level of experience. With plenty of white sandy beaches along the Rio Espalon and Rio Azul you will be in your own little piece of paradise. And if that isn't enough we always find time at the end of the day to relax in our riverside hot tub, drink in hand. Life just doesn't get much better!   Enjoying every minute of the kayak school!
