Chile guidebook?

Hey,

Just started planning a trip to chile. Is there a guidebook? I found one for the futaleufu, but not one for the country as a whole.

Otherwise, any beta? Looking to paddle class III-IV, possibly hire a day guide for the fu.

Thanks,
Lauren

We've been planning out a trip as well, and here is the best online guidebook I could find:
Rivers Guide - Guide

You could literally spend days navigating aroung that exchile website. They have tons of good information.

I don't know if they are still doing this but the family of the late John Foss who ran almost everything in Chile and Peru was writing a guide to S. America when he died in Peru. The Family of John is still trying to get the book finished and published. Maybe it will help you. heres' the link

If you want, or need, an easier day and have the time, the Espolon is near the Fu. It is fairly mellow but the clear laminar ripply flow over the boulder bars makes a "Magic Carpet Ride". Have fun, prep for a maritime climate, i.e. rain!
