RAFTING OR CANOEING IN PUCON
It is an intrepid struggle of a combative crew, armed with binding and synchronised oars cutting the unsettled currents, the shivering rapids and foamy crests of the Trancura River, the powerful feeder of the Quillelhue Lake (close to the Argentine border), in order to keep afloat.
And the raft remains afloat in spite of the belligerence of the river and its rapids classes III, downstream, and IV, frightful, in the Upper Trancura, where only experts can show their ability and bravery.
The watercourse agitates and the crew rows, there is a fight; and one enjoys a kilometric adventure, an incredible and exhausting experience in currents with large swirls and high waters, which demand the best technique of the crewmembers.
With sections more than 30 metres wide, the Trancura River, 15 kilometres away from Pucon, is very well attended by rafting devotees who fully enjoy its two circuits: the Lower (class III) and the Upper, of class IV.
Sportspeople visiting Pucon will find the necessary infrastructure and services for the practice of rafting.
