Full description
Embark on an exhilarating 2.5-hour rafting adventure on the Maipo River. Navigate various class 3 and 4 rapids surrounded by beautiful mountain landscapes and in the company of expert guides to keep you safe. Enjoy an ideal group experience with the thrill of intermediate level rapids without the need for previous experience.

The rapids' constant flow provides action throughout the descent. In spring and summer, with its highest flow, the Maipo River increases in intensity and becomes the favorite adventure site for those who visit the Cajon del Maipo. Challenge the river's best rapids and, if conditions allow, dare the salto de la fe (faith jump), a unique cliff jump of over 3 meters (around 10 feet) into the river.

The tour lasts 2 hours and is suitable both for those with and those without experience. At the end of the rafting, enjoy a delicious tea or juice and warm up in the hot showers. Receive approximately 30 digital photos of your experience to show your friends and family.

You can begin the tour in San José del Maipo or Santiago. If you choose the option with transportation from the meeting point in Santiago, you will have 3 hours of free time after the activity to have lunch (not included) and get to know Cajón del Maipo. The local partner's shop is right in the center of San José del Maipo so you can easily walk and explore the surroundings.
