A medium difficulty hike to a hidden side valley south of the Reloncaví Fiord. On Day 2 it starts at 6 am and the first 3 kilometers of walking are relatively steep uphill. During the 3-days hike, an average of 4 hours per day is hiked, the 1st and the last day are intended for arrival and departure from and to the airport Puerto Montt. 

The progam

5 days / 4 nights

At the airport of Puerto Montt you will be greeted by our English-speaking tour guide and transferred to Puerto Varas to your hotel right in the center of the city.

In the afternoon or early evening, the trekking agency will contact you to organize a meeting and discuss the upcoming days. Then we have free time to walk along the beautiful coastal promenade of Puerto Varas, relax in one of the many good coffee shops and enjoy the view of the volcanoes. Overnight at Hotel Weisserhaus.

Departure at 6:00 am from Puerto Varas along the shore of Lake Llanquihue to Ralún, where the Petrohué River flows into the Reloncaví Fiord.

From there, continue along the south coast of the Fiords and cross Cochamó to the Puelo Valley to Tagua Tagua Lake.

From here we will drive for 20 minutes over the crystal-clear water to the entrance of the Tagua Tagua Valley, where we will see a beautiful waterfall, 70 meters falling deep directly into the lake.

After 8 km of hiking uphill, we arrive at our mountain hut by the Alerce lake where we stay the first night.

After breakfast, we go deeper into the valley. We walk past waterfalls and then we walk along a crystal-clear river.

We will see 3500 years old Alerce trees until we arrive at our second accommodation that is located directly at a glacier lagoon.

We will sleep there having the refuge just for us.

In the morning, we leave our refuge and start walking for almost 4 hours down the valley until we get back to the Tagua Tagua Lake, where our boat already awaits us. Overnight at Hotel Weisserhaus.

After breakfast, we are taken to the airport to continue our adventure in Chile at a different place.
