Picture yourself sailing through the very heart of Patagonia on turquoise waters rippled by the constant breezes. Come aboard and discover the splendor of Chile’s largest lake! This body of water shared by two countries reaches the town of Chile Chico on its southern shore, an oasis with a temperate climate and thriving agriculture. It also offers a direct route to reach Argentina.

Embarking at the Port of Río Tranquilo, head first to the incredible Marble Chapel Nature Sanctuary to visit its network of caves, especially the famous ‘Chapel’ and ‘Cathedral’ caverns. Get ready to kayak through the many tunnels whose unique colors, textures and volumes make for an amazing photographic record. This natural wonder is undoubtedly one of the highlights of Chilean Patagonia.
