The doorstep to Chilean Patagonia lies in the country's southern Lake District. Here you'll find towering volcanoes as well as some of the largest and most beautiful freshwater lakes in the nation. These include lakes Llanquihue, Puyehue, Rupanco, and many more. Also here are a number of crystalline rivers fed by the Andes Mountains, vast protected areas abounding with native forests, and renowned island archipelagos, like Chiloé. This island just south of the Lake District city of Puerto Montt and is known as a land of myths and legends, with unique architecture and incredible gastronomy. It's a place truly worth exploring.
We are a local tour operator in Chile. We operate all around Chile with possible extensions to nearby countries such as Argentina, Bolivia and others.
We are always seeking to develop and improve tourism in local communities and in remote zones with lower tourism levels. We believe in the strength that tourism can exert to protect and continue to protect areas rich in natural resources and that can be seen at risk by the interest of other industries. We want to take responsibility for recovering original identity and important traditions that have been lost over time.
