 This camp was voted one of the top 5 whitewater camps in the world!

This exciting multi-sport Veterinary CE Course takes place in the spectacular northern region of Patagonia. This area has some of the most fantastic mountain scenery in the world, including giant peaks with awe-inspiring glaciers, beautiful pristine forests, and resplendent whitewater rivers.

The Futaleufu is considered to be one of the most beautiful and exciting whitewater raft experiences in the world! We will stay most nights at the fabulous Bio Bio camp right on the banks of the almost surreal turquoise Futaleufu.

Each day of this CE course will be a new adventure! Several days will be filled spectacular, professionally guided whitewater rafting on the Rio Azul, the Rio Espolon, and the Futaleufu.

You will also have the option to participate in horseback riding and hiking in the Andes and also be able to do optional mountain biking and fly-fishing for feisty brown and rainbow trout.

The seminars typically take place each afternoon before dinner. Each night well enjoy gourmet meals and great camaraderie and stories from the day!
