Seakayaking Rio Bueno to the Pacific Ocean 

 To the Sea By Means of the Bueno River
 

Description

Requirements

An area that emerged with the contribution from European immigrants to a past native Huilliche, in the middle of a dreamy scenic environment. 

The first three decades of the 20th century were characterized by the apogee of the logging activity, which originated in the installed sawmills within the mountain range area. Before the existence of the train to Ignao, the wood was transported by raft through the lake's outlet, the big Bueno river.  

In this area, is where one of the greatest natural catastrophes happened throughout the history of the country: the eruption of the Carrán Volcano on July 27, 1955.

How To Get There
Bus (www.turbus.cl)

We will travel to the X region  (the Lake District), approximately 900 km south of Santiago. It will be 4 days of paddling through the tranquil and totally transparent waters of the Bueno River, along the shores of the Alerce Costero National Park, whose historical past will show us traces of a glorious time period when  steam boats traveled the river with merchandise for the main cities of southern Chile.  All that is left there today are the skeletons of the boats along the shores, their memories and the settlers testimonies about this way of life. 

They will share with us their unique lifestyle which is isolated from the routine and conflictive world we come from. Isolated from the restlessness and yearning. Their happiness and love for the land where they were born will surprise us. Stories of cougars and hand made bread. Our trip down this enclosed winding river will leave us permanently astonished, especially the last part where the river outpours into the sea with a contrasting native vegetation as a bordering landscape. 

Down the Bueno RiverFortunately, the only way to access this natural beauty will be by water since roads do not exist. 

At the end... we will have a new group of friends and unforgettable memories 

We use the word expedition due to the exploratory nature of the trip, the fact that all the participants must share the duties and should be prepared for personal challenges, especially climate changes. 

To promote the safety of our trip, we will use singles and doubles kayaks made in Germany and the USA; but most importantly we will offer a practical discussion about rescue and paddling techniques. 

Our trips are true sea kayaking expeditions where our participants will learn exactly what this means.

We will be paddling in an area completely isolated, where the climate and positive mental attitude of the group will play a huge role in the decisions we make.
