Chile Kayaks and Logistics
My name is David Hughes and I'm the owner of Pucon Kayak Hostel. I'll be happy to address your questions.
A. Kayaks - we rent Chile's best and freshest selection of kayaks including: Tunas, Mambas, Newmads and old Nomads, Flying Squirrels, Zet selections, Remix', and 9Rs. Cost is $US20/day.
B. Class IV-V in February - Thus far we've been experiencing a low year from north to south. With that said December is currently experiencing a great rain flow of several days including today, Christmas.
February is similar to June or July in Colorado and many of your classic creeks are drying. The Pucon area runs like the Palguin and Trancura hold well. You should expect the Upper Fuy to be dry but the Middle Fuy would be a great V run with the bono 50 footer as the icing on the cake. It and the Truful Truful are day trips from the hostel.
To the north 9 hours you might enjoy the Maipo. And everyone loves the Futa to the south.
We'd be enthusiastic to host you as you get on your feet and notch some of the Pucon runs. And help with your logistics if you need it.
