5 days / 4 nights Itinerary

Day 1: Balmaceda - General Carrera Lake
After arriving at the airport, we will begin our journey through the Austral Highway to the south, the unpaved stretch of the Pan American Highway. We will cross rivers, lakes and valleys surrounded by mountains and virgin forest. Our destination is General Carrera Lake, one of the world's largest freshwater reserves. It will be a long trip because we can stop several times along the way to observe the nalcas in the cajón Cofré, the lupines on the banks of the Murta River and the unique landscape provided by Lake General Carrera. We will arrive at sunset at the lodge where a delicious welcome dinner awaits us. Lodging at Mallín Colorado Ecolodge.

Day 2: Hike through Mallin Colorado
After breakfast we will trek or ride through the Mallín Colorado forest, among lengas, coigues and ñirres, with abundant wild flowers on the trail and extraordinary views over Lake General Carrera. Little by little we will go up to arrive at clear heights where we will appreciate in the distance the calypso of Lake General Carrera and vast mountainous landscapes. We will continue until we get to see the glaciers of Cordón Contreras, eternal snows that are appreciated from very near. We will continue our tour stopping whenever necessary to observe infinity of wild plants, herbs, flowers and countless trees of all ages. After lunch in the lodge, we will go south through the town of Puerto Bertrand and we will see the Baker River, at its birth and at the confluence with the Neff River. We will stop on the way to observe its rapids and the abundant vegetation on its banks, as well as to appreciate closely the incredible calypso color of its waters. We will return in the afternoon to the lodge for dinner and sleep.

Day 3: Marble Cathedrals and Explorer Bay
Early in the morning we will head north to visit the marble cathedrals. Before arriving at Puerto Tranquilo, we will board a boat along the shore of the lake to arrive at a peninsula of impressive rock formation, due to the erosion caused by the millenarian tapping of the water. We will enter the caverns in the boat to appreciate the spectacular combination of colors of the water with the white of the rock. Then we will enter a newly built road towards Exploradores Bay, which changes rapidly towards a more humid forest, a climate that surrounds the Northern Ice Fields, where we can see abundant varieties that we had not seen before. At the foot of the glacier, we can take a short hike and climb to see the impressive Exploradores Glacier, which descends from the Mount Valentine of the Northern Ice Fields. We will have lunch on the way and return to the lodge in the afternoon. Overnight at Mallín Colorado Ecolodge.

Day 4: Playa and Puerto Guadal
After breakfast, short walk to Mallin Colorado beach to observe the flora on the lake. We returned to the lodge for lunch and took advantage of a short break. Before sunset we will visit the nearby town of Puerto Guadal and its houses with beautiful gardens. From a specially selected point, we will see an extraordinary sunset (weather permitting). Return to the lodge, dinner and lodging in Mallín Colorado.

Day 5: Transfer to Balmaceda
Very early in the morning, we will start the way back to Balmaceda airport, passing through the same places we arrived, but in the morning, with another light, calmly appreciating the flora on the way, which is varied and magnificent. We will arrive at the time to take the connecting flight.
