Itinerary

Depart from Coyhaique, early in the morning heading 223 kms (140 miles) south on the Carretera Austral (Austral Road) to the town of Puerto Tranquilo. Throughout the journey, you will see beautiful Coigue, Lenga, Ñirre and Ciruelillo trees forests.
We will cross through iconic places such as the Chiguay Lagoon, La Piedra del Conde (The stone of the Count) and the Ibañez Portezuelo, which has the highest altitude of the whole Carretera Austral (1.000 meters a.s.l). Approaching the Ibañez River, the magnitude of the imposing Castillo Hill will be appreciated and we will pass by the village of Cerro Castillo. All this area belongs to the Cerro Castillo National Park. The tour continues to descend through the valley of the Murta River which you will be able to see covered up by colored cloak in spring due to the local Lupinus up to where the General Carrera Lake is born.

There will be stops on route to take photos. After about 3½ to 4 hours’ drive, we will reach Puerto Tranquilo for lunching in a local restaurant. In the afternoon, a short hop takes us to the shores of General Carrera Lake for the boat trip to the Marble Chapels Sanctuary of Nature. This is a place of unique beauty, where wave action has polished the limestone to form really attractive caves.

In the afternoon, return to Coyhaique with a stop in Cerro Castillo town to buy some snacks.
