Spring on the Carretera Austral

Enjoy five days completely disconnected from the stress of the city, with your family, alone or as a couple, disconnected a few days in the Patagonia of Aysen knowing diverse varieties of  wild Patagonian flowers along the road. Lupins, notro, the flower of Calafate are some of the beautiful flowers you will know in this trip.
We organize the transfers, excursions, prepare your cabin or all the cabins of Mallin Colorado if the group is large, and we care about giving them the best food that can be in those latitudes. Rich breakfasts with homemade bread, roast lamb on stick, winter soup in pots of clay, wood stove, a delight to enjoy a few days before the end of the year.

5 days / 4 nights
Itinerary

Day 1: Balmaceda - General Carrera Lake
After arriving at the airport, we will begin our journey along the Carretera Austral to the south, the unpaved extension 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 reserves of fresh water. It will be a long trip because we can stop several times along the way to observe the nalcas in the Cofré pass the lupines on the banks of the Murta river and the unique landscape that Lake General Carrera provides us. We will arrive at sunset at the lodge where a delicious welcome dinner awaits us. Accommodation at Mallín Colorado Ecolodge.

Day 2: Hike through Mallin Colorado
After breakfast we will trek or ride through the Mallín Colorado forest, between lengas, coigues and ñirres, with abundant wild flowers on the banks of the trail and extraordinary views over Lake General Carrera. Little by little we will go up to reach 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 snowdrifts of Cord Contreras, eternal snows that can be seen from very close. We will continue our tour stopping whenever it is necessary to observe infinity of wild plants, herbs, flowers and countless trees of all ages. After having lunch at the lodge, we will go south passing through the town of Puerto Bertrand and we will know the Baker River, at its source 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 appreciate the incredible color of its waters. We will return in the afternoon to the lodge for dinner and sleep.

Day 3: Marble Cathedrals and Explorers Bay
Very early in the morning we will leave in the direction towards the north to make a visit to the marble cathedrals. Before arriving at Puerto Tranquilo, we will board a boat along the shore of the lake to reach a peninsula of impressive rock formations, due to the erosion caused by the thousand-year-old pounding 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. Next, we will enter a newly constructed road to Bahía Exploradores, which changes rapidly from the landscape to a more humid forest, a climate that surrounds the Northern Ice Fields, where we can appreciate 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 falls off Mount San Valentín from the Northern Ice Fields. We will have lunch on the way and return to the lodge in the afternoon. Accommodation at Mallín Colorado Ecolodge.

Day 4: Beach and Puerto Guadal
After breakfast, short walk to Mallin Colorado beach to observe the flora on the shores of the lake. We returned to the lodge for lunch and took 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 accommodation in Mallín Colorado.

Day 5: Transfer to Balmaceda
Very early in the morning, we will start our way back to Balmaceda airport, passing by 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.
