The Northern Ice Field, San Rafael Lagoon and San Rafael Snowcap are the favourite spots for national and foreign visitors because of their amazing landscapes and ecological biodiversity.

Day 8 - Tortel

Caleta Tortel is a coastal village located between the mouth of the Baker River, the largest river in Chile, and a small embayment of the Baker Channel. The surrounding geography is rugged, formed by a number of islands, fjords, channels and estuaries. The village was founded in 1955 to exploit the cypress de las guaytecas wood that was abundant in the area. The timber business accounts for most of the economy in Tortel to this day. The Chilean Patagonia is a region of great natural diversity. This unique place has forests, mountains, islands, canals and glaciers, all of them barely explored by man.

The Angostura Ingles (English Narrows) are located north of Puerto Eden, a small isolated port located on Wellington Island, in the Magallanes Region of Chile. The village is known for being the home of the last Kaweshkar people.

At the foot of the massive Darwin Cordillera mountain range, the majestic scenery and wildlife of the inner passages of the Chilean Channels is an assault on the senses.
