Departing in February, our eight-day journey through this raw and remote corner of Chilean Patagonia begins in the port city Puerto Montt, a short flight from Santiago de Chile. Snaking its way down country the yacht takes in volcanic calderas, temperate rainforests and wild flora and fauna.
An exclusive voyage that takes in little known areas of Chilean Patagonia, the superyacht holds no more than between 8 and 32 guests.
Visit the Chiloé archipelago, known for its 17th and 18th-century wooden churches built by Jesuit missionaries. Wildlife lovers can spot seals, humpback whales, orcas and Chilean dolphins.
Active travellers may wish to hike to the summit of the Chaitén Volcano, setting foot on one of Patagonia’s spectacular glaciers. Explore the surrounding forest, while local gauchos guide horse riders along remote trails. There is excellent brown trout fishing and options to white water raft down river.
When not dining onboard, traditional Chilean barbecues are often held in the remote wilderness.
Relax on the superyacht’s sun deck or admire the passing view from the jacuzzi. Sip a cocktail at the end of a long day of exploration.
The yacht is equipped with all toys to visit the wildest and remotest landscapes.
Helicopters will transport passengers deep into the mountains for trekking or heli-assisted kayaking.
Explore the biodiverse ecosystem of Tic Toc Bay in the Corcovado National Park. Fertile waters mean blue whales are able to nurse their young.
Travellers may become involved in an important whale research programme that looks to ensure the survival of the majestic beasts for years to come.
Stop at the Melimoyu National Park to hike through the rainforest, over glacial streams and onto volcano slopes. Later in the day, snorkel with sea lions or those who are PADI certified may explore coral reefs.
After sailing through spectacular fjords, the super yacht will slowly approach the Queulat Hanging Glacier. With more than 260 KM of glacier to explore, there are excellent opportunities for fly fishing or for catching king crab.
To relax, soak in one of the many thermal baths or hot springs.
Measuring 2KM by 20KM, the San Rafael Glacier dwarfs the surrounding landscape.
Kayak to the majestic glacier and hear the tremendous sound of segments of ice splitting and crashing into surrounding waters.
Up above, in one of the yacht’s helicopters, a bird’s eye view offers a new appreciation for scale.
