South of Chiloe and Puerto Montt lies the wild and beautiful Aysen District. This expedition highlights the virgin forests of Patagonia, offering you a glimpse of the impressive landscape of this wet and windy region. Traditional music, dances and a tasty lunch complement your experience. An approximately 15 minute ride takes you to the Aiken del Sur Park, where you’ll visit the information center for an introduction to the area. You’ll join your guide on an approximately two hour walk along the River Trail that will immerse you into the deep nature of Patagonia, traversing prairies and humid forests.
Stop for photos along the way and to learn about the local fauna and flora. At the end of the trail, the Old Man’s Beard Cascade awaits. The return walk takes you along the Waterfall Trail, where you’ll board your coach to a local venue for a typical Patagonian barbecue lunch accompanied by Chilean wines and folkloric dances. Feel free to join and learn the steps!
