Multisport is a special educational program prepared for Nido students. It is a trip combining three different activities in one of Chile’s most traditional locations. This trip is also a personal challenge, every adventure member will have to face his/her own personal goals. It is probable that each student will have different levels of experience in the three disciplines that we offer (biking, horseback riding and kayaking), so some activities will be easier than others depending on each student. They are all also meant to be fun.

The trip entails gently pushing the comfort zone of our physical and mental abilities, organization skills and our ability to work as a group.

This trip will help students to learn that the biggest challenge is usually in our heads and the way we approach our lives.

There is a high water period from December through May which is caused by the melting of snow as the Andean summer begins and from the rainy season in the upper jungle. The low water period begins in June and ends with the rising waters in November. While the water level can fluctuate more than 45 feet, the warm and humid climate remains relatively constant throughout the year, giving this area its botanical category of "Everwet Tropical Forest".
