Floating through the stunning Maichin canyon

Here at <ESCAPE>, we have our roots in whitewater kayaking.  The nearby waterfalls and Class V rapids are the reason we came to this area to live and play, and we love sharing the magic of our local runs.

We specialize in coordinating all-inclusive 7-10 trips for kayakers looking for the ultimate international kayak vacation.  We take care of logistics so that you can make the most of your time here in Chile.  Our riverside guest house is nestled into the forest, on the slope of towering granite peaks.  It is just upriver from the town of Curarrehue and just downstream from the headwaters of the Trancura river in Sector Puesco of the Villarrica National Park. Each trip is designed to maximize time on the water while also providing a real cultural experience via immersion into the rural Chilean and native Mapuche lifestyle.

If you are traveling with your own gear, and you are just looking for someone to show you the lines on the Rio Maichin or Puesco or their tributaries, we will be happy to arrange a guide to help get you safely down our local runs.  We can also help to arrange lodging for those interested in staying closer to the good whitewater around Curarrehue instead of in Pucon.
