Women's Adventure Travel: Women's Multisport Adventure Vacation in Patagonia, Chile with H2O Patagonia
Come experience Patagonia's awe-inspiring landscape in the supportive environment that only women can create. This adventure is the active woman's dream vacation; combining exciting sports and blissful pampering into one amazing week.
Not many vacations give women this chance to explore and brave Patagonia on
their own terms. Free of competition and ego,we'll work together as a team to
meet each day's adventure and celebrate our achievements every evening in an environment
of relaxation and comfort. We'll let the aqua waters of the Futaleufu rush us through
towering boulders and lush green river valleys, trek in a nearby nature preserve,
ride on horseback up the stunning slopes of the snowcapped Andes Mountains, and
rappel down the beautifully contoured walls of Gelves Canyon. In the evening we'll
return to a tasty meal, wood burning hot tub, yoga classes, a masseuse, and
private riverside ranch bungalows in a high-end rustic comfort environment.
Though we often create custom itineraries, the multi sport adventure vacation in Chile with H2O Patagonia typically takes you away from home for seven to ten days including travel time (we offer either seven or four night packages for this trip). Whether you arrive in Patagonia via Santiago, Chile or Buenos Aires, Argentina, we make the travel as pain-free as possible. Your arrival into the heart of Patagonia on day two of your South American adventure is exquisite, and each day after that is fun-filled yet relaxing. Day nine finds you refreshed, renewed and invigorated as your bags are packed for the journey home.
Note: Trips can be added and custom itineraries are available! If you are interested in a women's multisport adventure trip during a week not listed here, please fill out an online inquiry form or call us toll free at 1-866-525-2395. We will do our best to accommodate your desires.
Women's Multi-Sport Adventure Vacation Sample Itinerary
Day 1 - An H2O Patagonia representative will meet you in either Puerto Montt Chile or Bariloche Argentina (your choice!), before whisking you away to our 175-acre riverside ranch on the mighty Futaleufu River. Entry via Puerto Montt entails a short flight over the Chilean Fjords and drive thru Chile's old growth forests to our base camp. Entry via Bariloche Argentina is a breathtaking drive over the Andes mountains range to Futaleufu Chile. Once settled, you'll meet your rafting guides who will prepare you for the week's adventures on the Futaleufu river.
Day 2 - Bridge to Bridge, Class III-IV+:
These rapids are big and exciting, but consider today a warm-up for the whitewater to come. After rafting we return to base camp where the activity options abound: kayak on the lake, relax in the hot tub, trek to the top of nearby ridges, or simply enjoy appetizers and drinks at our riverside bar.
Day 3 - Hike and float upper Futaleufu:
Today your morning is spent trekking through an awe-inspiring nature preserve along the Upper Futaleufu River. Later, we'll paddle inflatable kayaks back down to Antucamay. Your night is spent dining on exquisite food and relaxing in our spa.
Day 4 - Horseback ride with local "huasos" (Chilean Cowboys):
Today, cool-tempered horses lead you through the breathtaking hills and valleys of Futaleufu. This ride makes you feel as if you have stepped back in time, back into the old-world charm that permeates this region. After the ride we return to Antucamay for a restful evening of pampering.
Day 5 - Rafting the Futaleufu River, Inferno Canyon:
Back to Whitewater Rafting! Today we launch at the ranch and float downstream to Inferno Canyon*. This section is the perfect mix of gorgeous pools punctuated by stomping whitewater. At the confluence of the Rio Azul we'll call it a day and return to the luxury and comfort of Antucamay.
Day 6 - Canyoning and inflatable kayaking:
If you've ever dreamed of being a kid again, canyoning is for you. Canyoning is the hybrid of watersports and mountain climbing. Rappel down waterfalls, leap into turquoise pools, zoom down water slides, and crawl through tiny caverns. After canyoning, you'll spend the afternoon kayaking down the Espolon, a stunning tributary of the Futaleufu.
Day 7 - Rafting the Futaleufu River, Pasarella to Casa de Empanadas, Class III-V:
Your adventurous week closes with a bang! **World-class rapids are interspersed with calm pools on this final day of rafting.
Day 8 - Departure Day:
After a hearty breakfast and a farewell to your guides and staff the charter flight will return you to Puerto Montt (or transport to Esquel or Bariloche). Please plan your Puerto Montt-Santiago flight for mid-afternoon in order to meet your outbound international connection that evening. Most international connections leave Santiago after 8:00 PM, arriving at US destinations early the following morning.
