ROBERT KENNEDY JR.

“Eric Hertz and Robert Currie have devoted their lives and their company’s resources to saving some of the world’s last great white-water, wilderness rivers."

OUTSIDE MAGAZINE

“The absolute mastery of Robert Currie guiding in the back of the raft made every element of the Futaleufu river seem heightened, perfected, colorized, almost virtual."

ESPN TELEVISION

"Earth River is the premier river runner in the world. Their staff includes the finest guides to be found."

JACOB SCHERR, DIR. OF GLOBAL STRATEGY, NRDC

“Earth River is more than a great whitewater outfitter. Their contributions have made a real difference in our efforts to preserve some of the world's most beautiful rivers in Chile and Canada."

MATHEW MUKASH, GRAND CHIEF OF THE CREE

"I want to personally thank Earth River for helping us stop the hydro-electric projects on our land preventing the destruction of one of North America's last great wildernesses."

NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC MAGAZINE

“I’ve rafted with Eric Hertz down some tough rivers—the Futaleufu in Chile, the Colca in Peru. He's one of the best in the business—obsessed with safety."

Earth River Trust Properties

Earth River Trust on Patagonia, Chile’s Futaleufu

“Earth River’s land conservation effort on the Futaleufu is nothing short of Herculean and represents the single largest river land trust endeavor ever initiated by a commercial outfitter.”
