World-class whitewater rafting, hiking, horseback riding, mountain biking, and trout fishing!

This exciting multi-sport Wilderness Medicine CME 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 several nights at the fabulous Bio Bio camp right on the banks of the almost surreal turquoise Futaleufu.

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

We will also do some amazingly beautiful horseback riding and hiking in the Andes. There is optional mountain biking and flyfishing for feisty brown and rainbow trout.

The Wilderness Medicine CME lectures and workshops typically take place each afternoon before dinner. Each night well enjoy gourmet meals and great camaraderie and stories from the day!
