Chile - Andean Fjords

Chile - Andean Fjords

This is an unforgettable adventure in the magnificent Chilean fjords of Comau, Quintupeu, and Cahuelmo. On the eastern side of the Gulf of Ancud, wild mountain cliffs soar out of the ocean to touch the sky. See stupendous glacial valleys, primeval temperate rainforests, and numerous kinds of marine wildlife - including dolphins, sea lions, penguins, and other sea birds.

Enjoy fresh salmon steaks, or steamed shellfish gathered from the cliffs at low tide - all prepared by our cook in the miniature galley of our picturesque support vessel. Watch the sunset on the peaks as you relax in natural hot pools. Spread your sleeping bag under the diamond stars of the Southern Cross.

Words alone simply cannot express the unique beauty and variety of this majestic land, whose calm, protected waters do not require you to have any previous experience with sea kayaks.
