  • Wonders of nature. It is a place that deserves to be known. Although exhausting, can be the tour per day, from Coyhaique, to navigate by boat between the chapels.

  • A wonder of nature not very widespread. This natural paradise, worth the pain to do many Kms, won't regret. They can leave on excursions from Los Antiguos, Chile Chico, Coyhaique etc. Without going to choose Chile Chico as a starting point, I do not recommend for anything the minibus for "Kingfisher", a disaster the vehicle, without air conditioning and the doors will not close therefore gets land all the time, besides that is mini bus for and load put people all the time, 5 hours until you reach Pto. Quiet river which is where does the boat to the chapels of marble. However I highly recommend doing so in own car, the gravel is in very good condition road, and say that no, for that you choose do so on excursions. The trip from Chile Chico, has a cost of 45,000 Chileans - February 2017 - (or $1250 Argentine, accept pesos), includes transfers and Lake tour; No snacks or food. But if you go with your own vehicle, you'll see incredible views, and the cost from Pto River quiet between the 8-10 thousand pesos Chilenos, much less than a contracted tour. Little you can say of the marble caves, there are no words to define these natural beauties. The Lake excursion lasts approx. 1 hour or 1 hour and a half. And Pto River quiet is about 160/170 kms drive from Chile Chico, but it is a very winding road with ups and downs, you can take 3 hours to do so. My best advice, do it in your own vehicle.

  • Beautiful boat trip to admire these magnificent cellars of marble Lady nature shaped by the dint of time and wind. Water colour and incredible purity and, when the light from the Sun is there, the nuances of colours of marble are incredible.
