Aysen's Lakes and Lagoons

This tour goes along the Pacific Ocean to one of the most beautiful lagoons named "Los Coipos", where you have a fantastic view of the Andes and the birds greet you with their song. From there, we will go to the bay of Acantilada to view the Condor glaciers. A perfect viewing platform offers a wonderful view of the Andes for taking wonderful photos.

Then, we continue to the former capital, Puerto Aysen, to admire the longest suspension bridge in Chile, designed by Gustav Eiffel. From there, we will hop in a vehicle to take a 10 km off-road trail to a 40-meter-high waterfall called "Cascada del Leon", located in the middle of the cold rainforest.

From here, you will be taken to "Puerto Aysen," where you will visit the "Plaza de Armas," for a quick restroom break and a chance for you to take some pictures of the local scenery, including the "golden gate" of Aysen.

Continuing to the next lagoon and crossing the former using the last century existing connection road, the old route from Puerto Aysen to Coyhaique, you will have a unique experience eating from the Chilean Cowboy BBQ. Everything that will be served here is organic. Here, you get a warm welcome and deep insight into the people's way of life in this part of the world.

Afterward, you will go back to Puerto Chacabuco, where your ship is waiting for you.

Best Tour ever

Only 4 of us on this unbelievable tour. Tour guide & driver were fabulous. Spent as much time as we wanted at each location. Even stopped to allow us to photograph flowers and plants. Great lunch at a organic farm.

Beautiful scenery, natural, with good guide and driver. Explanations of the native people and history as well as uses of some of the products from the land. Some remote and scenic spots.

Amazing views, amazing guide
February 16, 2019
Tour date 2/7/19. We were met at the dock by Angelika and team and whisked away for an amazing tour. It was immediately obvious Angelika really loves showing the beautiful place she lives with everyone. She is extremely knowledgeable, and is easy to understand. It is a fair amount of car time since the beautiful views are spread out, but we did make frequent stops to soak in the views. We spent quite a bit of time in remote locations to enjoy the sights without crowds, so as a result this is a "pee in the woods" tour so that is the trade off for getting to see areas most others will not. This tour was the highlight of our South American ocean cruise.
