HOW TO GET HERE
Amidst Andean snow-capped mountains, the peaceful Futaleufú Village is located south of Santiago, the capital of Chile, and very near the border with Argentina. It is an ideal destination for adventure tourism in South America due to the beauty and power of the waters of its main river, the Futaleufú, one of the top five rivers in the world for whiter water sports, which in Mapuche language means “big river”. The village lives essentially off tourism and offers basic infrastructure services, such as inns, hotels, bars, restaurants, shops, convenience stores and health care centers, among others.
Through Buenos Aires:
From Buenos Aires, there is a flight of approximately 2h30 to the city of Esquel, on the border of Argentina with Chile. From there, it takes another 1h20 by car to cross the border and reach the farms.
From Santiago, there is a flight of approximately 2h30 to Puerto Montt. From there, the road to the community is spectacular, crossing fjords, lakes and national parks, such as the famous Pumalín Park.
By car, the journey takes approximately eight hours.
Another option is flying from Buenos Aires to Bariloche. From Bariloche, the journey is by land; it takes four hours to arrive at the city through a route with a beautiful view of the Andes.
