Chile travel

Coyhaique and Puerto Aysén

If adventure runs through your veins, this is the right place for you. This corner of Patagonia challenges you to climb its amazing peaks, like the Mackay or the Castillo. Trekking is a must and fly fishing gives you time to relax on the amazing rivers.

Wonder at the untouched nature of this area in the heart of Patagonia, with its evergreen forests and lengthy Carretera Austral, which will captivate you with beautiful views. This is the perfect destination if you want to push your senses to the limit and get in touch with your wild side.

Visit the arts and crafts fair in Coyhaique’s Main Square. You’ll find handmade products on the stands made with materials like native wood, leather, stone and wool, souvenirs that will remind you of your trip through the south of Chile.
