An experience that can not be missed!

We help you to better organize your visit to the Region and in particular to the beautiful Laguna San Rafael. We offer day trips to the San Rafael glacier aboard a catamaran which departs from Puerto Chacabuco.

The catamaran sails west to enter the Aysén Fjord and continues south through the channels and through the Témpanos River. At noon you will arrive at the San Rafael Lagoon, from where you will be able to get closer in a zodiac boat to the ice floes, getting as close as possible to the wall of the glacier.

You will be able to enjoy the unique and unforgettable experience of photographing this imposing wall, from which, from time to time, huge ice blocks emerge.

The catamaran sails back to arrive at 21:00 hrs. in Puerto Chacabuco. The excursion includes breakfast, aperitif, lunch, afternoon snack, open bar, entertainment and a toast with whiskey and millenary ice.
