Day 1 Puerto Varas / Caleta Cholgo
We pick you up at the meeting point, Puerto Montt’s Airport and as we drive southwards. We will cross on a ferry and once on the other side enjoy the Pichicolo thermal spring, our last stop until we rich Caleta Cholgo where we set up camp and spend the night.
(2 hours by private transfer, 45 minutes by ferry) (DL-D) (Night by Camping)

Day 2 Hornopiren / Quintupeo Fjord
We will drive south and reach the ocean and once in our Kayaks 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.
(4 hours paddling, 13 KMS) (B-BL-D) (Night by Camping) (No facilities available)

Day 3 Quintupeo / Cahuelmo
This will be our longest day; we will paddle for 5 to 6 hours, nearly 16mi and 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.
(6 hours paddling, 25 KMS) (B-BL-D) (Night by Camping) (No facilities available)

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.
(5.5 hours paddling, 25.5 KMS, 4.5 hours by private transfer) (B-BL)
