At the point where Patagonia begins, there is a swath of land stretching 200 miles that will stop you in your tracks. There are volcanoes and ancient forests dotted with crystal blue lakes, fjords, waterfalls and natural hot springs−and in December 2020—the total solar eclipse. The path of totality perfectly passes over Colico Lake, home-base for this tour. Besides many opportunities for adventure activities on both water and land, you’ll learn about the rich local culture, both from the indigenous Mapuche and the more recent German settlers. See this area through the historical lens of the Mapuche legends, cuisine and handicrafts for an important perspective on Chilean culture. This is an ideal tour for photographers, eclipse chasers, and travelers looking for a truly unique experience.

Kate was great to work with in the planning stage. She was prompt, helpful, and efficient. Our tour guide, Edwin, was knowledgeable and passionate. We were very happy to have traveled with Adventure Life, it made the trip easy and a true pleasure. We could concentrate on enjoying the experience rather than the details of travel.
