  • Leaving Puyuhuapi to Puerto Cisnes, Puerto Aisén or Coyuaque by the Carretera Austral passes by this wonderful park with non-linear scenarios, where pulses an Andean lung lush vegetation, water and ice.

  • We had the strongest year-round rain, but we did and we got. The place, overwhelming the landscape is beautiful and you think that so much beauty that you see may not be real, but is it. The glacier and its lagoon are wonderful and I recommend making all the paths are different views of the glacier.

  • Another of those majestic parks national of Chile. There are adequate facilities and properly marked trails. There are different routes and panoramic of the snowdrift. Follow the instructions of the Rangers and, as always, leave no trace.
