The Family Float trip is an exceptional trip, exclusively offered at Amity Tours.
It begins at the mouth of the Rio Tolten; the outflow of lake Villarrica, which is alongside the town of Villarrica. The entire family is fitted in top of the line kayak equipment to ensure optimal functionality and safety. After the fitting, the head guide goes over all of the proper safety and precautionary measures, as well as how to operate the raft and duckies.
The actual experience on the water is peaceful and relaxing. One can enjoy the beauty of Chile while floating down the river as it twists out of the Andes towards the Ocean. Some of the sights include a couple of the volcanoes located in the area, Chilean farms, and wildlife.
After a few hours on the river the whole trip stops on a private, secluded section of the river. We will enjoy a couple hours of gorging ourselves on a massive Authentic Chilean Barbecue, which has already been set up and conducted for us by our local crew. While slowly eating the massive spread, families are welcome to fish with their kids in the river, take photos, explore the country side, or just sit by the fire and enjoy a cold beer or exquisite Chilean wine.
Once everyone’s stomachs are completely satisfied the trip down river starts back up again. The second excursion on the river is identical to the first, a few hours floating down stream, with a few mild rapids here and there for a little bit of excitement especially when done in one of the Duckies. After a full day of sun on the river, everyone is picked up by the van and brought back to Pucon.
We can organize any multi-day whitewater paddling trips in the south of Chile, including Rafting, Kayaking and Ducky.
