Detailed Itinerary
Day 1: Puerto Varas to Cochamo. Hike. Camp.
Collection from your hotel in Puerto Varas (please ask about hotel options) for a drive along the scenic coastal road that will take us through Ensenada to the town of Cochamo located by the Reloncavi Estuary, the northern-most fjords of Patagonia.

Here we will meet our guide and local arriero and load the horses that are going to carry all our gear. Once this is done we will pack our day packs with our personal items and start hiking up into the valley through the thick rainforest with incredible views of the huge granite walls all around us.

Once in Las Junta we will rest at the new mountain refuge which has incredible views of the surrounding valley with its granite peaks, cascading waterfalls and pretty rivers. For those with some energy left, we will hike around the Junta Valley before returning to our campsite where we will set up camp in this magnificent setting.
