For this river rafting experience, you don’t have to go far from the city to enjoy a fun half-day on the Chili River. The river is perfect for beginners, with enough thrills to get your adrenalin pumping without requiring any previous experience or technical ability.

The rapids of the Chili River are moderate, so it’s not a problem if you’ve never been river rafting before. It’s also a great half-day experience for the whole family.
