KOLEUFU PATAGONIA

RIVER RESCUE TRAINING TEAM

We are a river rescue and safety training provider center based in Chilean Patagonia, led by Daniel González. Our river rescue training team offers courses for international certifications through the approved Rescue 3 and IRF programs. All certifications are valid for 3 years. We speak Spanish, Portuguese, Italian and English.

Koleufu Patagonia was conceived by Daniel González, who began his life on the river paddling a cataraft on the Futaleufú River and today is a rafting instructor, as well as a professional kayaker and world-class certified guide.

It has formed an excellent river rescue training team with the best professionals in the sector.

We teach navigation, safety and decision-making skills.

This way, when there is an emergency, our trained rescuers can confidently respond to incidents or flooding in the river, always working safely during rescue efforts.

Our operation has its base in Futaleufú, where we have a first-class classroom, first-class equipment, rafts, cataraft, a variety of kayaks and the necessary technical equipment to be able to best develop the course you choose.

In addition, we can carry out courses and workshops in Central and South America.
