Hi Steve,

Chile is a great great place for kayaking. The season is the same of new zealand. There is the super famous place call "Pucon" (is the queenstown of chile) and there you have "million" of creeks rivers.

After if you like volume rivers there are a lot: the famous Bio-Bio (but a lot of dam now), Nubbles, San pedro, Petrohué and the famous and one of the best white water rafting you can do with the Futaleufu river.
IF you want more there is the baker river, very serious class V volume...

In all these last rivers they project construction of dam....

If you have any more questions you can send me a mail:
