With a blue sky in the background and a very pleasant temperature, we started to paddle quietly, following the instructions given by our guides. Breathtaking sceneries succeeded one another as we floated down the river.
The Fuy is a mountain river whose rapids have been classified as grade III-IV, that is to say, that going through them demands significant technical know-how. Therefore, adventurers should be alert and obey the guide, even though this kind of navigation is not particularly risky.
As we got along the waterway, various rock formations caught our attention to both sides. The descent would take approximately one and a half hours up to Lake Panguipulli.
All this seemed very simple, but once we went through the first rapid, adrenaline took hold of each of us and the voyage became more attractive. Our paddles kept moving and the raft was sliding down the river at full speed, causing us to move from one side to the other.
Everything was joy and excitement. Every time we went through a fall, the group would scream with the pleasure that conquering and taming a part of the river represents. Our eyes were now on the next fall.
We all became quiet whenever a backwater followed a large fall and let us flow down the magic of the river as we observed the valleys with their native forests and turquoise waters. We confirmed that it was undoubtedly one of the most beautiful rivers throughout Chile to practice this activity.
The high temperature, a typical feature between December and March, was one good reason for us to jump into the waters of Lake Panguipulli once the rapids came to an end. The, we swam back to the raft.
