Expediciones Chile Philosophy

Over the past twenty years of our history we have evolved a company mission statement and trip philosophy that describes who we are and what we believe in.

We bring people together, from all over the world, who share a common interest in the love of the outdoors; be it whitewater kayaking, whitewater rafting, sea kayaking, kayak instruction, trekking, fly fishing, climbing, cycling, canyoning, horseback riding or a family retreat. Whether hosting you, your family, your club, a corporate retreat, or the world rafting championships, we can do it.

We believe in active participation. We are teachers and guides. The river and adventure experience provides the opportunity for you to learn more about yourself, rivers and the natural environment that surrounds us all. We believe that there is a commonality in everyone, be it improving individual skills or challenging oneself to reach lofty but attainable goals. We are here to encourage you, with the highest level of safety and support.

We play off the beaten path and through some of the Andes Mountain’s most spectacular terrain. Our guests often find that, although they came to Futaleufu for the adventure, they find much more meaningful. You too will have the opportunity to experience the colorful culture of the Andean people and the astounding natural beauty of South America while enjoying the adventurous activities we offer.

We believe in mingling with the local culture throughout our trips. The frontier families in Patagonia, Chile and Argentina, share a unique bond and style of interaction between family members that is very different when compared to North American standards. You will learn from them as they, in turn, learn from you. We often invite our neighbors to join us for a barbeque or a raft trip to experience different cultures and the splendor that lies in their own backyard.

We believe in teamwork and that comradeship with your fellow adventurers will add greatly to your enjoyment of the trip. You will meet interesting people from many different countries, yet they are united in their common ecological consciousness and love for rivers and the great outdoors. When you join us, you will make friends and memories that will stay with you the rest of your life. We often hear of our Alumni re-uniting in other countries, recreating with friends they made on our trips, or simply keeping in touch with a postcard from another corner of the world. During dinner conversations, stories of the day’s adventures buzz about.

We believe our guides and local employees are the foundation of our business, they have had years of safe experience guiding and conducting our trips, and they will personally introduce you to our region of Chile. They want to share their passion for the rivers, mountains and wilderness of the Patagonia frontier. They have made this guiding their profession and put your safety and enjoyment as their top priority.

We believe in ecological and river conservation. We have a strong commitment to the free flowing Futaleufu River. FutaFriends, a grass roots organization, has a mission to protect this river and the local culture that depends on it to live. We are demonstrating that eco-tourism is a viable alternative to hydroelectric development.

Most of our guests come on our trips for the challenges of a new adventure or to escape the pressures of the outside world, however they often find much more than just healthy, invigorating recreation. Come discover the colorful culture of the Andean people and the astounding natural beauty of South America, all the while enjoying the adventurous activities of the Futaleufu River Valley in Patagonia with Expediciones Chile.
