A 15-minute ride from Puerto Chacabuco takes you on an outstandingly beautiful road up to the recently-opened Aiken del Sur Private Park -- a wilderness adventure in the virgin forests of Patagonia. The natural beauty of Aiken del Sur includes Riesco Lake, waterfalls, indigenous perennial forests, caducifoliae, ferns, moss and lichen, myrtle and turf prairies with wild fuschia and calafates, as well as macal and mallines or swamps.

An easy half-mile stroll (or longer if time allows) follows a path to Barba del Viejo falls. A refreshment will be served at the park's restaurant before you return to Puerto Chacabuco to re-board the ship.

Notes:

Wear comfortable walking shoes, sunscreen and insect repellent. It is essential that you wear warm, layered, water-resistant clothing in order to fully enjoy and participate in this excursion. Your guide will do his/her best to speak English, but please keep in mind that the limited tourism infrastructure here is part of the ports charm, and bear with any language difficulties he/she may encounter. The coach is not air-conditioned.
