Three Amazing Adventures in Aysen


5D/4N Starting at $2990.00 per person

The variety of landscapes you will find driving south of the Balmaceda Airport along the Carretera Austral, in Chilean Patagonia, is one of the surprises you will find during your stay in Aysen. Kayaking inside the Marble Caves, walking over the ice of the Glacier Exploradores, rafting on the River Baker, plus a boat navigation to the San Rafael Glacier will be an amazing experience.  During the whole trip, far behind, the huge Northern Ice Fields form a spectacular white backdrop as part of the most beautiful landscape in Patagonia. The Mallin Colorado Ecolodge is located in middle of this stunning Patagonia landscape on the southern corner of Lake General Carrera, close to the Marble Caves, Exploradores Glacier, and the San Rafael Glacier - each can be visited in one day.

The 5-day program include all ground transportation, 4 nights lodging at Mallin Colorado Ecolodge, all meals, excursions per the itinerary, bilingual guide.

"The trip was amazing and very well organized."

Traveling in Chile can be difficult because of the reliance on flights to get from one place to the next in such a long country. Transfers, flight times, and locations must all be accounted for. What makes this travel agency stand out above the rest is their experience with South America. They have been to Chile on numerous occasions and have first hand experience with the many different places to travel and hotels to stay.  Everything was planned to the very last detail and the trip went without a flaw. Their knowledge of the region is extensive. The pre-trip information was also very well organized and informative. We traveled with 3 young children, so it was reassuring to know we were in good hands. I would use this company again without hesitation if traveling in one of the countries they have expertise in.
