About
This excursion is recommended for those who wish to enjoy relaxing in places in a beauty and absolutely undisturbed by man’s presence. The excursion starts at Lake Menendez, after having crossed the footbridge over the Arrayanes river and walked approximately 2,000 m. At Chucao Port, you will board the boat to sail across Menéndez lake and get to the banks of the northern branch. During the voyage you can get stunning views of the southern wall of Torrecillas Glacier, Big Island, forests and falls.

Cancellation policy
  • For a full refund, cancel at least 24 hours in advance of the start date of the experience.
What to expect
  • Once arrived at Sagrario port you will disembark and start a hike into the heart of the National Park which protects the millenary Alerce trees. Fray Francisco Menéndez was the first European to record in writing between 1783 and 1786, the geography of the lake district, of what is known nowadays as Los Alerces National Park. His trip, whose aim was missionary, resulted in an adventure of geographical reconnaissance and a search for the City of the Caesars, and became the first exploration of these areas. The tour guides will lead you along a trail of extreme beauty which takes the visitor into the depths of the Valdivian forest and its magnificent specimens. You will see Swan lake, the rapids of Swan river and last but not least, “Grandfather”, an alerce tree over 2,600 years old, with 2.2meters in diameter and 57meters high, undoubtedly the most outstanding example of its kind, which constitutes one of the oldest living species in our planet that inhabits a place where pollution does not exist or is practically nonexistent.

El servicio es excelente. Tanto el capitán del barco como la guía son muy atentos. Durante el viaje nos sirvieron cafe, te o mate a eleccion con galletas. Durante la caminata nos permitieron estar el tiempo que deseamos. El lugar es impactante por su belleza que emociona.

La navegación es tranquila y segura para hacerla con niños, los paisajes excepcionales y la calidez humana excepcional. Nos sirvieron ricos dulces para acompañar un buen mate estando a bordo. Tanto el capitán como Marcia, la guía, fueron muy amables y predispuestos a brindar información. Ese día, celebramos el cumpleaños de mi hija y ellos compartieron una pequeña torta al son del cumpleaños feliz.La caminata por el Alerzal milenario, una vuelta atrás en el tiempo increíble.Excepcional paseo!

El lugar esta muy bien cuidado, los guardaparques super amables y con mucha voluntad para ayudar en cualquier cosa. NO pudimos realizar todo el recorrido por problemas meteorologicos que nos impedian circular por determinados senderos pero asi y todo el recorrido fue hermoso.
