We will leave from your hotel in Coyhaique at approximately 6 AM to begin our trip along the Southern Austral Road, towards the town of Puerto Tranquilo.
In our route of approximately 223 km, we will contemplate beautiful forests of lenga, plum or notro, coigüe and ñire. We will also go through important milestones along the way, such as Laguna Chiguay, Piedra del Conde and Portezuelo Ibáñez, which has the highest height of the entire Austral Highway. We will be able to appreciate Cerro Castillo as we approach the Ibañez River valley, crossing the new Cerro Castillo National Park.
We will have several photographic stops along our path, where we will pass through the Dead Forest, the witness of the eruption of the Hudson Volcano that took place in 1991, and we will descend through the Murta River Valley until we find ourselves facing the immensity of the General Carrera Lake.
We will arrive in Puerto Tranquilo in time for lunch at a local restaurant. In the afternoon we will make a brief transfer to General Carrera Lake to make the expected navigation to Marble Chapels. This place of singular beauty and formed by the action of the lake on the limestone has caves of great attraction. After obtaining impressive views of Marble Chapels, we will return to the city of Coyhaique, where we will make a previous stop at the Villa del Cerro Castillo to buy a snack if you wish.
