Auquinco means “agua que resuena” - “ the echoing water” in Mapuche. It is the water calling you. It is a primitive call, a rough sound, a peaceful prayer.
Auquinco is a river lovers’ team who decided to respond to the river’s call. Auquinco organizes eco-sustainable trips to make the fascinating Patagonian rivers and landscapes accessible to water and outdoor addicts of all levels; a trip to discover the Chilean soul, that will bring you to the most remote and wild landscapes, to crystal clear rivers and water dancing on the slippery stones.
Alternating kayak, rafting, horse riding and fly fishing, the trip will let you discover the uncontaminated Northern Patagonia, little known by tourists, where you will be able to hear the Earth’s heart beating. In Patagonia humans and Nature are following the same rhythm in complete harmony, composing a melody echoing since centuries in those intact places. Lodging will alternate comfortable hostels, “intothewild” camp spots and traditional cabanas.
Eating around a wood fire, descending the rivers following the stream, horse riding on ancient paths, breathing and living the simple wild life: this is Auquinco.
