ITINERARY

With this package, you will be able to discover two of the most important highlights in the Chilean Lakes area: the Chiloe Island visiting the penguin colony and an amazing full day navigation to the village of Peulla. You also will enjoy Rafting and a vist to Senda Romahue reserve.


DAY 1: PUERTO MONTT - PUERTO VARAS

Upon arrival at Puerto Montt airport you will be taken to Puerto Varas, known as the “City of Roses”, located on the shores of Llanquihue lake. Here you can enjoy a wonderful panoramic view of the volcanoes Osorno and Calbuco and the beach in the summer months. Overnight in Puerto Varas.


DAY 2: RAFTING PETROHUE RIVER

Pick up from your hotel in Puerto Varas and hop in our van for a scenic drive along lake Llanquihue to our base in Ensenada. The first contact with the raft is during a complete safety talk under the shade. Then we get geared up and drive 5 more minutes to reach the put in of the Petrohue river. The river flows out from Lake Todos los Santos and makes its way to Reloncavi fjord surrounded by snowcapped volcanoes such as Osorno, Calbuco and the antique chimney of Puntiagudo. We put in on a calm section where we can practice our strokes before getting into the action with the first rapid called “Ciao Seco” (good bye to dry) from here these are 13 kilometers of continuous fun filled class III and IV rapids like the tricky “Ese”, “Los Pollos”, “Queso Suizo” and “El Nadador” in between many more. We enjoy great places where to stop, climb on the cliffs and jump into this clear water. After 2 hours of this treatment we reach our take out and the changing rooms before heading back to the base for a locally crafted beer and some snacks. Drive back to Puerto Varas. Overnight in Puerto Varas. (breakfast, snack)


DAY 3: SENDA ROMAHUE RESERVE

Today we will visit Senda Romahue, one of the Lake District’s hidden jewels. Located along the shores of the Maullin river, this private reserve within a farm serves as a shelter for many endangered species such as the Puma, the Chilean fox and the Pudu (smallest deer in the world) amongst others. Your host will explain some of the daily tasks needed to take care of the animals and how he and his family are continuing the preservation efforts. Afterwards, you are invited to a home hosted lunch that includes delectable local specialties made with ingredients grown on-site in the organic garden. Later a guided bird watching and nature walk on one of the many beautiful trails along the Maullin river, one of the few protected wetlands in Chile. You also can enjoy a horseback riding.

This full day excursion allows us to visit the northern part of the Chiloe Island and the Gulf of Ancud. We will get to know its history and its forts, customs and legends.

We will continue our journey to Caulin, a characteristic cove whose activity is collecting seafood and seaweeds and growing oysters. It is also a privileged place because of the large number of migratory birds that get to it.
