Pucon, Chile is a major center of adventure. During the summer, activities include hiking, rafting, horse back riding, fishing, canopy, canyoning and many other adventurous activities. Endurance Sports Travel has tackled all of these. We would encourage you to stay post race to enjoy the adventures that Pucon, Chile has to offer.

Volcano

The area around the town of Pucon is filled with many fun and adventurous things to do. For those who want a bit of a challenge there is the hike up the live, active volcano Villarrica. From the top of the volcano you can see into Argentina and you over look numerous lakes, mountain ranges, rivers and two other live volcanoes.

Waterfalls
Experience the thrill of rappelling for the first time. To add to the excitement rappel down waterfalls! This adventure is referred to as "canyoning" and even though you may have no prior experience, it is very safe and an incredible thrill.

Kayaking
Kayaking on class two and three rapids is easily accessible to those who dare the ride. Even if you have no prior experience you can use an inflatable kayak that allows you to safely navigate the rapids along with your guide.

Rafting
You can enjoy the excitement of Rafting on class three and four rapids and this has been one of the highlights of the trip for those adventurous enough to go.

Hot Springs
For those that like to have a bit more relaxing fun after the race there are eight different hot springs in the area. We have visited 4 different hot springs over the last few years and have found them to be exceptional and a great way to relax. After stressing my adrenal glands with the aforementioned activities as well as after a hard race and a long night at the race party, the hot springs were "just what the doctor ordered."

Horseback Trips
Also on offer are some relaxing and very scenic horseback trips in the local fields and woods leading past beautiful streams and the occasional waterfall.

Camping
The last few years some in the group have opted to go on a one night camping trip to the Cani Sanctuary. We watch the sunset from the rim of an ancient volcano. From this point we can see 4 volcanoes and the Andes. We sleep beneath some of the oldest trees on the earth (2000 yrs), beside a crystal clear lake within a crater. This is an incredible trip!!

Other Activities
Other activities include sailing, windsurfing, jet-skiing, water-skiing as well as technical and non-technical mountain bike rides
