If you are a fauna lover, you will find the typical birds of southern Chile: black carpenter, kingfisher and black-necked swans. In the higher areas, you will see how the condors are planning. Also if you are lucky you will see pumas and culpeos foxes that come to get food. In the waters of the Queulat Fjord you will see dolphins and sea lions.
The Hanging Vestisquero is the most emblematic place of Queulat National Park. You can see a huge mass of ice falling like a waterfall. This landscape is touching and very profound for those who have time to contemplate its beauty.
The Queulat Park has been positioned as one of the favorite parks of the Carretera Austral, you can do trekking, camping in different sectors, boat and bicycle tours. Although these activities can be done at any time of the year, we recommend summer (between December and March) for the weather conditions. Recall that Aysén Patagonia is the rainiest region of Chile.
