My 17 year old Son and I went on the 4 day trip through Northern Patagonia with Juanfe in April. We learned a lot about the Chilean culture and way of life as we kayaked through the most amazing fjord. The peace and tranquility of the water and surrounding area was nothing that I had ever experienced before. From the... More

We did 4d sea kayaking trip to North Pumalin with Yak Expediciones in mid-February and this trip definitely became one of the main highlights of our long travel through South America. We love trying new things and being active and have done lots of different activities while travelling but this experience was something special! In 4 days we not only... More

We did the 4 day kayaking trip to the Northern Pumalin Park with Juanfe in March. We had one of the best experiences we've had in Chile. We have 2 small kids (9 and 6) and Juanfe was great with them, getting them really involved. We saw all the wildlife you could expect, dolphins, sea lions, penguins, pelicans, sea birds,... More

We were looking forward to this trip for a long time and were not disappointed! The scenery is magnificent, remote enough to feel like an adventure, and the wildlife great fun. There was enough canoeing, (tho one more day would be better) and we always felt in safe hands with Juanfe, who is also very friendly and keen that his... More

To have the experience to learn about paddling in kayak and enjoy unforgettables landscapes around fjords. To share the passion for kayaking among people from different countries and cultures. Full recommended, it is important to have good physical condition and spirit of adventure. Carlos

We chose this tour because we've had several guided and independent kayak trips and knew that a guided trip in this region was best for us due to the logistical advantages. Juanfe is a "one man show". He owns his company and is the guide for all his trips. He demonstrated high integrity with how he handled all aspects of... More

My wife and I went on the 1 day trip to Reloncavi Fjord. We had no experience of kayaking but Juan tailored the trip to our level. He was a very sociable guide, making us feel at ease straight away despite our lack of experience. We stopped at lunchtime for a picnic, with delicious filled rolled made by Juan's daughter....

After seeing some of Juanfe’s kayak trip postings, I decided that a YAK tour was exactly what I wanted to do. I chose the 6 day Pumalin Park trip because I was interested in the warmer weather of Northern Patagonia (I’d seen many photos of the temperate rainforest lush green flora vs southern glaciers); I was interested in something more...

My husband and I attended the 4 day trip through the Pumalin Park a few weeks ago. Although the owner of the company is really lovely and the park is beautiful, we were disappointed by our experience.  The four days included : one day driving day with a short hike and no kayaking, one day with two hours of paddling...
