Chilean North Patagonia and Carretera Austral
Rich in unexplored areas, Northern Patagonia covers the south end of the Región de Los Lagos and the region of Aysén in its entirety, going from Chaitén to the Southern Patagonian Ice Fields. The Carretera Austral (Austral Highway) crosses the area and it takes you to several fishing lodges, thermal springs, and several hotels that combine comfort and adventure.
You can visit the region with our tours and cruises. Also, if you want to go through Carretera Austral on your own there are several "self-drive" tours and car rental options. To get to Northern Patagonia and Carretera Austral you can buy a plane ticket in our flights section.
Thinking of Going to Patagonia?
DescriptionThe Carretera Austral (Austral Highway) is one of the biggest human efforts to rule these lands. This highway begins in Puerto Montt and then takes you to Pumalín Park, a contentious foreign-owned private park aimed at maintaining and protecting biological variety. Through a side road from there you can travel to Futaleufú, an ideal place for lovers of kayaking and rafting. The river's white and stormy waters pack a whole challenge for the brave ones.
