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.

This was my first experience with Adventure Life - and I couldn't have been more pleased with the trip. The guides and local staff in both Buenos Aires and Uruguay were terrific - extremely helpful and accommodating. I really enjoyed meeting the friendly staff in Buenos Aires in person (I left my bags with them for the afternoon).
