          A wonderful day’s sea kayaking and lunch
          A very professional operation with outstanding staff including both guide and driver, with excellent equipment for sea kayaking. The days paddling wasn’t easy due to current but the guide Paz navigated the best route for the group. The lunch at Yolanda’s was a fantastic authentic experience to share a meal and see locals living simply as they had for generations. Thank you KoKayak, I highly recommend this experience.

          2 Day Kayak Excursion
          An amazing experience! Our very informed guide, Eli, was able to answer all of our questions regarding the area and local fauna and flora. Yolanda and her son Juan Carlos, whose land we camped on during our 2 day excursion, helped us understand more about life in the countryside. 10/10, would recommend to anyone. Also we saw dolphins.

          Brilliant experience
          Amazing trip . We did the two day kayaking tour and the views were spectacular . We had done short kayak trips previously but this was much bigger than what we had done before . Our wonderful guide Elle was so helpful and great at pointing out local wildlife along the way’s . The overnight stay was at a Charming farmhouse and it was so nice eating with Yolanda and her son and hearing their stories

          Great kayak trip with an expert guide.
          Cristina made sure we had a guide on short notice for our sea kayak tour in the fjord. Catalina our guide was great. She had attended college in Pucon to be a guide and her English was very gook. We were able to see penguins, seals, and briefly some dolphins. They even went out of the way to deliver an item we left behind.

          Fantastic kayaking experience in northern Patagonia!
          We took a kayak trip in the first fjord of Patagonia with Ko'KayaK and Paula as our guide. We had a wonderful experience kayaking with Paula as she was very knowledgeable, professional, enthusiastic, and loves what she does. We enjoyed the natural and cultural experience. The kayaking itself was moderate but not too difficult and I would expect that beginners would still be in safe hands. Stopping for lunch at Yolanda's and Juan Carlo's house was icing on the cake as this family has been on this particular property for many generations and built their home and livelihood from the land and sea. Everything associated with the process of arranging and doing this trip with Ko Kayak was flawless. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED experience!

          Amazing kayak experience in Pumalin Park
          We wanted to explore the amazing Pumalin Park area under our own power by kayaking through the fjords , seeing penguins, pelicans sealions and many sea birds. We were well looked after by Richard and Catalina with snacks, meals and drinks throughout. All the transfers by ferry and motor boat were seamless. The hot springs at the hotel and camp were very relaxing after the efforts of the day. Richard added a jungle walk to Lago Abascal on our final day, so beautiful, remote and unspoiled. You really have a sense of achievement at the end of the trip as the motorboat took us back along the route we had kayakked the previous four days.

          Kayaking and Rafting
          We did two trips with Ko'Kayak, a half-day rafting trip and a full kayaking trip. Both were great. The guides were awesome and the shuttle service was very nice. We went in early November and they provided all the necessary equipment including wetsuits, booties and splash jackets. Lunch at Yolanda's place on the kayaking trip was wonderful. Remember to bring your own paddling gloves if you have them.

          Amazing rafting fun!
          Had a wonderful time at Ko Kayak today, the white water rafting was so exhilarating! The team prepared us thoroughly and we felt very safe, the guides were really experienced. Not only was the rafting great but also the transfers, drivers and hosts who prepared Snacks for us and ensured we had the best photos just added to the experience greatly. Highly highly recommend!!

          Full day Kayaking
          We had a beautiful day kayaking in the Peloncavi Fjord. Simon and Cathalina were fantastic guides and Mario was the driving force behind it all. The lunch at Jolanda's place was an experience on its own.

        The half day trip on the Petrohue was exciting and fun. Our guide Amparo was great! She was able to give paddle commands in English and Spanish, and made sure everyone had a good time. I was able to get photos from the day, and the pizza and beer afterward made for a wonderful trip.

        I had such an amazing experience on the Petrohue rive with Ko'Kayak! First off, the guides are so professional and experienced. They know everything about the local nature. Additionally, the Petrohue is an especially beautiful river! I have been rafting many places, and this river is surrounded by three volcanoes, and the water is an incredible crystal-blue color! Elisban was such a perfect guide, he hit every single wave perfectly, knew all the special tricks, and explained how to paddle very well. I feel like I learned a lot about rafting. Great team, beautiful place, would do it again!

        My husband and I did a 1/2 day rafting trip with our guide Simon and an expert kayaker who was there to save us if we fell in and who was also amazing to watch. The company was highly focused on ensuring a safe trip which we really appreciated as well as a fun adventure. Simon handled the raft expertly, provided clear direction, and videotaped the whole adventure. We would definitely recommend!

        We did this as part of a cruise around Argentina, Chile and Uruguay. It was one of the tours offered by the cruise line. There were 3000 people on the cruise and only 40 of us did this trip. The other 2960 did not know what they have missed!!! It was incredible!! I would strongly recommend it ( but its not for the faint-hearted!). The experience was the best of the holiday.

        Fantastic experience rafting with Ko'Kayak. The river was big and bouncy, making it very fun. We had the opportunity to jump in the river too. Some great photos were also taken for a small extra cost. Totally recommend!

        Amazing experience! Excellent team, with great equipment. The wetsuits, shoes and helmets were dry, this is very important if you think about it. They took and shared some great pictures of the whole river rafting experience and end it with some delicious sopaipillas & pebre (like scones and pico de gallo, but way better). We can't wait to go back and book another adventure with them. Thank you Ko´KayaK!

        Very exciting rapids - don’t wear your glasses ! Very professional instructions and equipment kept us feeling safe, but this is not for the faint hearted. It was fabulous as an adventure, and the warmth of the river water was an unexpected comfort. Amparo’s English is excellent, so there were no communication problems. Her delivery is also entertaining, so we had a good time all around, with a welcome warm snack afterward.

        I’m so glad we did this w/this group. Catalina, our guide was the absolute best. We speak very little Spanish & she made sure we understood the directions in Spanish & English for our safety. We’re very grateful for this extra help. The rafting was incredibly exciting. We turned at one point & were able to view Volcano Orsono. We had several breaks where we could get out & play around. They even let you walk a path & take a jump into the rapids for fun.
        The pictures are OK. I imagine it’s hard to get good clear images.

        Excellent experience with the remarkable team from ko'kayak rafting the Petrohue River in Puerto Varas. Highly recommend this excellent company!! The guides were dynamic, knowledgeable and loads of fun. The equipment was in top shape and appropriate safety precautions were taken to make the trip both safe and enjoyable. The scenery was exquisite and the rafting was challenging. The home-made pizza and beer toped off what was a wonderful expedition on a beautiful sunny day.
