Floating Maullin River

Rafting and Floating Maullin River




Located almost 1.000 km south from Santiago this area is the perfect place to observe the majestic and snowed tops of the Calbuco, Osorno and Puntiagudo Volcanoes.

We invite you to descend this calm and flat river border with Maullin Ornitological Park where the observation of native species, such as Cormorant Colonies, Black Faced Ibis and other types of Herons is possible, as well as Black Necked Swans that inhabit this marsh. Submerged myrtles with roots growing from beneath the water, propitiate the development of swamps –hualves- where animals like fresh water otters –huillines- and minks live and offer a good chance of seeing.

As we will be travelling in small groups , paddling slowly and quietly , we will have good opportunities to enjoy the flight of a variety of birds , the colours of the the clouds reflecting in the water , and the magnificent sound of the silence. We will stop for a box lunch and then continue downstream.
