Go kayaking in the lake district
Get active in the stirring scenery of the southern lake district on a kayaking excursion.
The eddying aquamarine waters of the River Petrohue connect Lago Todos Los Santos with the beautiful Reloncavi fjord and ripple past outstanding views of Osorno volcano. Kayaking here is not physically challenging but it is nevertheless a wonderful way to get amongst the magnificent scenery and breathe in the fresh mountain air.
After paddling along the lower section of the river, there’s a chance to stop and soak in the natural hot springs of Ralun. Then it’s back in the kayak for the final stretch to make a memorable entrance into the vast fjord with its crown of volcanic peaks.
