Ultimate Patagonia - Chilean Mothership Kayaking

Trip Overview

Explore the islands and fiords of southern Chile. FROM CHILEAN WINERIES TO THE SAN RAFAEL GLACIER. This tour allows you to experience the best of what Chile has to offer in a mothership style sea kayaking tour: wine, wildlife and wilderness paired with sea kayaking in one of the most stunning places on earth, all from the comfort & convenience of a personal expedition ship. Spirit of the West Adventures has crafted this trip to take in most of the highlights that they’ve discovered over the past 8 years of travelling to the area, and feel that it is an excellent & in-depth introduction to the area. Highlights include paddling in beautiful & pristine Traiguén & Goñi Islands finding traces of the original inhabitants of the area among small islands of the archipelago, viewing abundant wildlife, soaking in hot springs, basking in the immensity of the San Rafael Glacier and taking in a traditional asado (barbecue) at a remote estancia.
