Road transfer to and from Puerto Montt or Puerto Varas

Barraco Waterfall hike: starting from the Lodge, we walk a path along the Barraco River through rain forests with Myrtles, Ulmo and Hazelnut trees, Tineo and Laurel bushes, crossing two streams on a relaxing 15 minute hike to the waterfall. We cross the river along a rope rail to the very base of the Barraco Waterfall.

There begins the adventure along ancient rain forests, streams and waterfalls, and unique vegetation in this one-of-a-kind nature preserve.

When we hike to the Alerce Cabin only, we hike back to the park entrance where our jet boat awaits.

Caribbean beach “asado” (barbecue): Enjoy a 45 minute ride on our Viper jet boat on the Puelo River with its occasional rapids, arriving to Playa Caribe, a white sand beach with calm turquoise waters surrounded by lush vegetation. Our chef will prepare a delicious Patagonian asado on the beach.
