Requirements

We will paddle our sea kayak through a very tranquil river until we reach our destination... the Maule River. 

As we advance, leafy forests and great walls will appear in front of us. We will camp on beautiful sandy beaches, where the tranquility of the paddling and the environment will permit us to become one with our spirits and we will have the opportunity to share our stories around the bonfire. It will be a new way to travel and to live.

Itinerary

Day 1:
We will start our trip at 11:30 am at the TurBus bus station in Talca. We will then start our journey to one of the most beautiful river of the central zone of Chile. After setting all the equipment in the kayaks, you will be taught the basic safety rules as well as the best paddling technics.
Our itinerary is more or less 60 km long on the quiet waters of the Maule river. We will camp close to a former train station surrounded by woods.

Day 2:
In the morning, maybe in the fog, we will unset our campsite and carry on our journey among landscapes that get more and more amazing and colourful. We will camp on the riverside.

Day 3:
We will start early by navigating close to forests until the mouth of the river...alost to the sea. You surely will be amazed by the shipyards, by the typical fishing boats set on the riversides. We will be back to Talca or Constitución just in time to take the bus back to Santiago.
