Its waters are turquoise and are full of salmons.

We will also go by a huge valley semi covered by ash after the eruption of the Hudson volcano in 1991. In the Tranquilo’s Port, we will embark in a boat to navigate, following the coast of the General Carrera’s Lake, until the Nature Sanctuary named “Capillas de Mármol”. This place is really beautiful, where the swell of the lake has eroded and polished the limestone rock, creating attractive caves.

After having had a break for the lunch box and had a rest, we will go back through a trekking path with good indications and with low exigency for people in good health and in good physical condition.
