Chile Sea Kayaking:
Patagonia Sea Kayaking Vacations

Expediciones Chile has been running sea kayaking expeditions since the early 90's. A sea kayak can take you to a pristine, spectacular world, seldom seen by people. We invite you to come explore the best kept secret of the southern Andes, a magical place where hundreds of glacial lakes are connected by thousands of kilometers of pristine rivers, all flowing through the dramatic Andean Mountain Range to the majestic fjords of the southern Pacific Ocean. Our Sea kayaking trips run through some of the most breathtaking scenery anywhere in the world. Kayak across high glacier fed alpine lakes; journey through rarely explored canyons and spectacular wilderness areas; and explore the majestic coastal fjords and isolated island archipelagos of southern Chile.

The amount of sea kayaking experience you have will help us determine the best trip for you. For truly expert sea kayakers with experience in bad weather, on moving rivers, and with rescue skills, we offer a self-guided version. However the challenges of self guiding can not be underestimated.

All that is required for our guided trip is an adventurous spirit and the enjoyment of an intimate relationship with the natural world that you experience while wilderness camping in unpredictable weather. Trips run from December through April. Contact our office.

Expedition Sea Kayaking Vacations in Chile

Andes to the Ocean
Sea Kayak Adventure crossing Lago Yelcho.

A life changing experience - as it has been described by some. We have what Magellan couldn't find, an all water route across the Andes to an active and recently exploded volcano on the coast Volcan Chaiten (May 2008). This is our most spectacular Patagonia sea kayaking trip.

On your first day upon arriving in Futaleufu we outfit you to your kayaks, and put in on the warm lake Lago La Paz. Here we go over the fundamentals of strokes, maneuvering, and rescue techniques. In the afternoon we will start packing up for the trip and stay in a bed and breakfast or pitch our tents in the riverside Campo Tres Monjas. The next morning we pack our gear into the sea kayaks and we put-in in the afternoon at the end of the whitewater on the Futaleufu River. Here we start your voyage down the last part of the Futaleufu river. The second day we start to cross Yelcho Lake, passing through a steep, isolated Patagonian fjord-like lake in the heart of the Andes. After several days we then enter the Yelcho River that winds along huge forested mountains. We will descend two rapids that are Class 2. In a sea kayak this is exciting and requires your full attention. Our voyage finishes very close to the Pacific coastline at a place on the river called old Chaiten, near the semi destroyed town of Chaiten, complete with a steaming volcano. Camp on white sand beaches, view magical waterfalls, experience the remarkable fishing or gaze at the towering glaciers high above. Each evening you will set up your own tent and help in preparing dinner. On this Chile sea kayaking odyssey you will experience: glaciers, scenic volcanoes, temperate rainforests, fjords, exotic wildlife, unique micro-climates, fishing, and a warm and welcoming Chilean culture at the beginning and end of the trip.

The Andes to the Ocean is our most challenging Chile sea kayaking expedition, as the experience can change from strong sunshine and delightful camping, into a rugged physical challenge of paddling into strong wind, waves, open water and wilderness camping in the rain. It is not for everyone. For those expert sea kayak groups that are experienced in rescue there is an unguided version.

Patagonia Sea Kayaking:
Sea Kayaking Chile Day-Trips

For our Multisport Clients:

Our multisport rafting vacations often provide an introduction to Sea Kayaking in Chile. Our daily sea kayaking trips return to our Patagonia Eco Camp. Our guides will teach you the sea kayaking basics in a truly spectacular setting. We have a short drive to the put-ins of the different lakes we target everyday. We sea kayak in Patagonia to remote and spectacular locations during the day in a time forgotten, but at night you can return to all the comforts of the Eco Camp.

Lonconao Lake: The first of our set of trips. This is a good warm-up paddling day to start a week of action. This is a beautiful lake sheltered from wind so that even with bad weather it offers a nice day of Chile sea kayaking.

Espolon Lake: A higher alpine lake offering glaciated vistas and waterfalls plunging into the lake.
