Baker River, Puerto Bertrand

#4 of 15 in Nature in Aisen Region
Deposited glacial sediments lend Baker River it's trademark turquoise-blue color, which provides a stunningly stark contrast from the densely forested hillside and snow-capped mountains in the background. Though the river is the country's biggest, environmental activists have been successful at saving the river from hydroelectricity dams, making it one of the few undammed rivers of this size in the world. Popular things to do here include hiking, rafting, swimming, and fishing.

  • The Baker River is the largest river of Chile and follow direction North to South. Your water has a striking blue and makes several stops along the Carretera Austral. One of the main points is the Confluence with the river Neff, completely different colors. The other is the confluence with the river Chacabuco. Another good thing is river rafting Baker from agencies in Puerto Bertrand. Is super safe and recommended. Of course, get ready because you're going to get wet enough.

  • Good people, good fishing, beautiful scenery, great adventure. I recommend also, visit Cerro castillo, Puerto Tranquilo, Cochrane and Pumalin Park created by Douglas Tompinks.

  • It was the more surprising that we visited on this trip to Patagonia. Wonderful nature. It is a quiet and lonely place. Seeing that amount of water without human intervention, of those beautiful colors, surrounded by towering mountains and with one another condor circling out there, is a simple but wonderful experience
