Bio Bio Expeditions


This outfitter is a Chile expert first and foremost: It got started on the now dammed Bio-Bio River and then decamped to the Class V Futaleufu, which is now the company's most popular run. It also seeks out burly whitewater in Africa, Asia, and North America: Siberia's Katun, Nepal's Marsyangdi, and California's Salmon.
