Dear Adventure Traveler,

Thank you for your interest in Bio Bio Expeditions!

In 1992, we launched Bio Bio Expeditions based on our genuine love for travel and a desire to explore the most beautiful and remote spots on the globe. Our adventure travel company has grown in size and scope from our first initial trips on the Bio Bio River in Chile to include multi-faceted adventure travel vacations in hand-picked destinations worldwide including Patagonia: Chile & Argentina, the Zambezi River and on Tanzania’s Kilimanjaro in Africa, Bhutan in Asia, Machu Picchu in Peru, and the Galapagos Islands in Ecuador.

Our goal at Bio Bio Expeditions is to share our expertise and our love of wild places with our guests with unsurpassed enthusiasm. As the co-founders of Bio Bio Expeditions, we are directly involved with every aspect of your adventure travel: from the original trip planning, to picking well-appointed lodges, greeting our guests, captaining paddle boats, training guides, by incorporating the locals into our trips, or by cooking river side feasts and teaching kayaking! We wear many hats and have undying passion for what we do!

We ask people who have traveled with us what genuinely sets Bio Bio apart. They tell us that it’s beyond exotic destinations, great guides, good food, and accommodations. They reminisce about the magical chemistry of adventure and camaraderie. They tell us it is about discovery of not only wilderness, but of themselves, and about renewing their enthusiasm for life. They say it’s to be far away and yet feel totally at home… and to come back and find their lives and perspectives changed forever.

Our Bio Bio adventure vacations are led by a crew of international rafting and kayaking, and trekking superstars who are establishing a new standard of excellence in the outdoor adventure industry. They are known for their friendly, caring hospitality and their knowledge of the culture, history and ecology in the many countries we visit. Safety is always a priority and we were proud to have been chosen to be the official safety team for the 2000 International Whitewater Challenge on the Futaleufu River in Chile.

At Bio Bio Expeditions, our team is closely tied together by a true desire to make your adventure with us pure magic. Our intent is to exceed your expectations and offer you an authentic, unique journey to some of the planet’s most astonishing places. Whether you are rafting through the Cotahuasi River’s canyon in southern Peru, hiking the Inca trail, climbing Mt. Kilimanjaro, trekking in Torres del Paine in Patagonia or paddling the azure clear waters of the Futaleufu River in Chile, our goal is that you will absolutely love your experience with us!

We look forward to sharing our passion for adventure with you and warmly invite you to join us. Start your next adventure by giving us a call!
