ADVENTURES

Collect memories, not things.

There’s only one road into the Aysén region of Chilean Patagonia and if you follow its unpaved contours from start to finish you’ll experience a kaleidoscopic journey where foggy fjords give way to brooding rainforests, bone-dry pampas and powder- blue lagoons. Shaped by the forces of the Patagonian Ice Field – Earth’s third-largest freshwater reserve – Aysén is an extreme landscape in constant flux. But with fresh routes to glaciers, a booming craft-beer scene in remote hamlets and a massive new nature reserve green-lit for national-park status, Patagonia’s last frontier has never been such a delight to explore.

EXPLORE THE LAND OF GLACIERS

Marvel at the delicate bauty of ice

Glaciers have been responsible for carving out Patagonia’s most iconic landmarks. Discover the hidden glaciers of the west coast, icy gems that are rarely if at all visited. Get up-close with the ice at the Nothern Patagonian Ice Field where you can hike or climb a real glacier.

Cerro Castillo
HIKE THE STUNNING CERRO CASTILLO

Find one of the best-kept secrets of Patagonia

Recognizable for the jagged peaks of Cerro Castillo and the cobalt blue waters of the lagoon, this national park is considered to be the quieter alternative to Torres del Paine. The most popular option is a four-day trek that takes you through the heart of the rugged terrain with breathtaking views.

HIT THE ROAD

Because the greatest part of your road trip isn't arriving at your destination.

Carretera Austral is an iconic challenge and an ultimate journey through South America’s most sublime landscape. It’s a 1240 km route through Chile’s most remote regions. Completed in 1996, the road winds through ancient forests, glacier streams, and snow-tipped mountains. The further you go, the more remote you get, the more your breath is taken away. El Maitenal is located near km 110 from the South, close to Villa Cerro Castillo.

The still mostly unpaved road was commissioned by General Augusto Pinochet during his dictatorship and took over 20 years to complete. It is considered to be one of the most ambitious infrastructure projects in Chile.

MARBLE CAVES

THE WORLD'S MOST BEAUTIFUL CAVES?

Explore these water-sculptured blue caverns on Lago General Carrera.

This stunning set of water-filled caves on Lago General Carrera is one of the world’s top natural wonders. You can explore them on a boat or in a kayak (which is much more fun).

The cavern walls, reflecting the azure waters of the lake, change their colour depending on the time of a day and water levels. Paddle through the marble cavern and its tunnels to get the most out of this adventure.
