Reviews 5/5 Stars - Based on 5 Reviews

Highlights of Laguna San Rafael Boat Ride

We will embark on a unique adventure through one of the most immaculate landscapes of Chilean Patagonia: Laguna San Rafael National Park, the largest in the Aysen Region, whose extension is made up mostly of ancient ice from the Northern Ice Fields.

We will make a full day navigation in the reserve, during which we will be able to see the glaciers and if we are lucky, we will be able to watch the native fauna

Always accompanied by expert guides, we will have the opportunity to enjoy meals on board and the unique opportunity to drink whiskey on ancient ice. 

Come with us and get to know the San Rafael Lagoon in a very special way!
