Lodge Trip History:  Earth River has been running the Futaleufu as a camping
trip since 1991. In 2014,
 the company ran it's first lodge trip on the Futaleufu
which utlized just one lodge.  The trip was exspanded to three lodges in 2015
to cut driving time down as much as possible (total driving time is similar to our
multi-camp trip)
