Chile travel

San Rafael Lagoon National Park

 

This is a paradise for explorers. Inside the park you will discover massive glaciers and rocky formations of the Northern Ice Field, and you will come face to face with the challenge of climbing Mount San Valentín, the tallest peak in the Southern Andes.

Keep your eyes wide open and do not forget to bring your camera! This park is home to a rich diversity of land and marine birds, such as the black-bowed albatross, cormorants, and black-necked swans, as well as the South American sea lion, porpoises, and elephant seals.

Strap on a life vest and sail through the San Rafael Lagoon. This natural pool of water comprises 742 hectares, and its stunning landscape and biodiversity make it worthy of its title of UNESCO Biosphere Reserve.

Climb aboard a cruise shop or catamaran and embark upon an adventure through the islets, canals, and fjords of southern Chile. An enormous glacial wall will astound you upon your arrival to the lagoon, as well as the thunderous noise created by the ice falling into the water. Top this magical moment off by toasting with a whiskey and a cube of Patagonian ice.
