Description

We leave at 8:00 AM , and after 70 km of travel to Bahía Brown, the chosen place to begin our adventure in kayak, we will have gone through the primordial forest along the route J. Bahia Brown has an incredibly beautiful landscape and also has a famous group of "flag" trees. After kitting out the double sea kayaks, it's time to enjoy the most beautiful beaches and remote bays along the Beagle Channel.

After kayaking for about 2 hours, and once we arrive at the uninhabited Gable Island, the largest of the Beagle Channel, we will find our refuge, a picturesque construction that we have restored without altering its past. There we will relax while enjoying a delicious hot meal. After lunch, we will take a walk on the island, and we will have the opportunity to kayak once more before dinner.

When the night comes, and after a very active day, we will sleep in the middle of the Beagle Channel, "off the grid" and camping under the southern stars.

During the second day, after breakfast, we will make the most of a full day kayaking in this vast, wild and tranquil area. To really enjoy two very exciting days, we put at your disposal all the necessary equipment and security, and specialized, bilingual guides (Spanish-English). Check for the availability of French-speaking guides.
