In this region of northern Patagonia there are dozens of small lakes and rivers, created by the phenomenon of the Andes Mountain Range plunging into the ocean. It is to one of these lakes that this tour travels, allowing you to fully immerse yourself in the splendid nature that is Patagonia.
A short drive from Puerto Chacabuco brings you to Lake Los Palos where upon arrival you'll receive a short safety briefing and orientation. Outfitted with your life vest, you'll board your kayak and start off on your expedition, following an experienced local guide. Navigating upstream along the western shore of the lake, you'll travel northward to the Tabo River which feeds the lake. This is an area of calm, crystalline waters and as you paddle along, you'll be able to see the varied vegetation and the typical Patagonian birds that inhabit the area, such as the king fisher, eagles, ducks, caiquenes and others. After approximately thirty minutes of kayaking, you'll stop for a brief walk into the woods for a closer look at the unspoiled natural wonders of this area. Proceeding on, you'll come to a small island filled with lush native vegetation. In this perfect setting, you'll make a second stop to rest and enjoy a light snack.
Re-energized, you'll climb aboard your kayak one final time and begin your journey back to the starting point, where your van waits to transfer you back to the pier.
