Description of Sea kayaking in Patagonia, Chile

This sea kayak trip offers an expertly guided mix of adventure and challenge in the remote and beautiful setting of Chile's Northern Patagonian Fjords of Quintupeu and Cahuelmo – an island-strewn spot where the Andes plunge into the sea, complemented by verdant forests laced with hiking trails, cascading waterfalls, natural hot springs and remote historic settlements.

After exploring your starting point in the pretty lakeside 'City of Roses', Puerto Varas, your kayaking adventures begin in Quintupeo fjord, paddling between towering granite cliffs and waterfalls to your overnight camp site at the fjord end.

Heading onto the Cahuelmó Fiord, nose your kayak inland among narrow valleys carved into mountains rising from the sea. Look out for seals as you cut through the water to reach your campsite by natural hot springs where you can have a sunset soak to ease any aches.

The next day lets you stretch your legs with a hike around Cahuelmó, before returning to the water to paddle Pichanco, where a van begins your journey back to civilisation – with a headful of unforgettable memories.

Responsible Travel

As the pioneers of responsible tourism, we've screened this (and every) holiday so that you can travel knowing it will help support the places and people that you visit, and the planet. Read how below.

Planet

Our small group size - maximum of 12, usually 6-7 - ensures this is a low impact trip. The trip is self-supported - no vehicles are used. We use locally produced fresh produce as much as possible and always in preference choose local over imported goods. We pack out all waste and minimize this by using products with minimum packaging, leaving no litter and keeping all water sources clean, leaving camp-sites cleaner than we find them.

People

When out on tour we encourage learning about Chile, the local culture of the teams we work with and the areas we pass through. Our guides hold informal talks with groups to inform about and discuss with them all aspects of local life. This helps understanding of the area and appreciation of the people who live there. We will meet quite a number of local people.

We are also now supporting the UK registered chairty Amantani. As this charity is very much in keeping with our ethos of small scale, targetted help which is educational & sustainabale. HuchuyYachaq is the other main Peruvian charity we support by paying a for a full time teacher. A % of all our income goes to support those projects.
