Located in the heart of Pumalin National Park in Chile's Patagonian Lake District, Quintupeo Fjord was known amongst locals as the hiding place of the German battleship 'The Dresden' during the Battle of the Falkland Islands in 1914.
In this almost untouched place, kayaking is the best way to make the most of its waterfalls, huge sloping granite walls and close up views of its abundant trees and vegetation. It's a truly wild place to camp and everything is still and quiet save for a pod of austral dolphins or sea lions sunbathing nearby. Not far from the fjord you'll find the picturesque Island of Llancahué, where you can relax in its 52°C hot springs.
