Day 1 Puerto Varas / Hornopiren/ Caleta Cholgo

We pick you up at the meeting point and as we drive south towards Hornopiren. We will cross on a ferry and once on the other side enjoy the Pichicolo thermal spring, our last stop until reaching caleta Cholgo, were we set camp and spend the night. (4hrs / 140kms de transfer) (BL-D ) (night in camping)


Day 2 Cholgo / Quintupeo Fiord
After breakfast we will have a talk on safety, rescue and paddling instructions. We will start paddling towards the narrow entrance of Quintupeo fjord. This day we will sail for 4 spectacular hours in the heart of Pumalin Park. The Fjord has huge granite walls; we can see waterfalls that jump from the Andes to the sea and in this -undoubtedly- beautiful little corner of this planet we will set camp at the end of the fjord and relax. (3,5hrs / 13km / 7mi paddling)(B-BL-D) ((night in camping)


Day 3 Quintupeo / Cahuelmo
Depending on the weather and the tide, we might have to do some night sailing, which will give us a different view of the fiord. As every effort is rewarded, we will arrive to Cahuelmo Fiord after about 5 hours, a wonderful place with big mountains that rise from the sea and then go inland amongst narrow valleys just waiting to be explored. We will see a colony of sea lions and once we have reached the end of the fiord we will find the Cahuelmo Hot Springs, a part of the Pumalin Project. We will set camp near the natural pools dug on the rock by local people in the early 30`s. We will enjoy a hot spring bath and the amazing southern latitude sunset followed by dinner and free afternoon. (6hrs / 25km / 13.5mi paddling) (B-BL-D) (night in camping)


Day 4 Cahuelmo / Puerto Varas
Today we wake up early and paddle north to Pichanco. Here we will meet our private mini bus that will take us back to Puerto Varas by a shorter way this time, crossing by ferry the Reloncavi Fjord and going by the small towns of Puelo and Cochamo. (6hrs / 21,5 km / 11,6mi paddling) (B-BL-D) (night in Puerto Varas)
