Pucón Week of Rivers

CAMP UPDATE: In light of the risks associated with COVID-19, NOC is modifying our operations across all locations including canceling all 2020 International travel for the season. We WILL continue to run courses and programs in the United States during this time with modified guidelines for health and safety, see our COVID-19 Response Page. We hope to see you for adventure travel in 2021. Feel free to contact us with any questions. 

The Week of Rivers Chile itinerary was designed after PKH owner David Hughes heard the needs of clubs like Pikes Peak Whitewater club and Chicago Whitewater Association and he later volunteered at the Carolina Canoe Club’s flagship Week of Rivers. David realized then that clubs have a mission to introduce kayakers to whitewater, to provide quality instruction, and to challenge their veteran boaters via river exploration. Chile rivers can provide proper safe and challenging features to serve the whitewater club boaters range of needs.
