What our specialists say...

Aisen is one of the lesser visited regions of Chile but only because, historically, it has been tricky to reach. Recent times have changed that and this stunning part of Patagonia is now more accessible than ever. This trip takes you to stunning marble caves, across beautiful lakes, through vast landscapes and to tiny villages all away from the crowds that now gather in more traditional regions of Patagonia.

We recommend this trip for:

  • Santiago
  • Puerto Montt
  • Puerto Varas
  • Puerto Montt
  • Balmaceda
  • Lago General Carrera
  • Balmaceda
  • Santiago
