Come to live an unforgettable sea kayaking adventure!
In this challenge we will cross the Pirehueico Lake, a narrow and long stretch of water surrounded by millenary native forests. No speed boats, no tourists, only you, your kayak and nature.
Pirehueico was created by a huge glacier 20.000 years ago. The glacier melted and created the lake. We will camp at the Termas del Lago Hot springs, were we will enjoy a nice BBQ with a tasty Chilean wine.
In native language (Mapudungun) Pirihueico means snow lagoon.
