Jason A. Atkinson


Northern Patagonia

late march 2016


Hosted with Ryan Allred of Jefferson Fly Water, Atkinson will return to the Futa tol see old friends, chase a few fish, float one of the worlds greatest rivers, ride a few horse, and eat from local gardens.

The Futaleufú River, located in northern Patagonia, is one of the premier whitewater destinations in the world. The river is fed by glacial and snow melt in the Andean lakes region of Argentina and Chile. Cutting through the volcanic mountain range, the river gorge drops as low as 1,700 metres (5,600 ft) below the surrounding glaciated peaks. The name Futaleufú is an indigenous Mapuche word that means “Grand Grand Waters,” and locals often refer to the valley as "un paisaje pintado por dios"—a landscape painted by God.
