Better than most things in Southern Patagonia (I'd argue better than all of it, but I'm biased). We were able to raft and kayak here and the scenery is just wonderful.

We spent several days on the "Futa" with Earth River Expeditions. Don't be fooled, this is seriously big white water when the water level is up and you should be in good physical condition to do the more challenging runs. If you are doing a...More
