The Pumalin Park is one of the largest private parks of the world, comprising 800 thousand acres of temperate, old growth rainforest in Northern Patagonia, protecting 3.000 thousand year old trees and unique biological features. You will paddle this incredible landscape where the Andes plunge into the sea, visiting undeveloped natural hot springs, sea lion colonies and streams so pure you can drink directly from them. For the adventurer, the self sufficient trips will immerse you in an intense experience where you power yourself through glassy waters or choppy seas, negotiating with the winds and 20 foot tides. More relaxed vessel supported trips, can be customized to your needs to combine full paddle days, with rested relaxed nights in the vessel. Available from October to April, with prime time from December to March. Peak season is January/February. Patagonian weather is unpredictable though.
