Pumalin Park by Sea Kayak

This sea kayaking adventure takes place in the heart of Pumalin Park, traveling along the beautiful Quintupeo and Cahuelmó fjords. Travelers will paddle between huge granite walls and waterfalls that plunge into the ocean and see plenty of austral dolphins, sea lions and endemic bird species. Visitors will also enjoy hot spring baths and walks to hidden lakes that very few have visited.
