There is no doubt that Caleta Tortel is a special place that serves as the port of entry to the Northern Patagonian Ice Field and the Southern Patagonian Ice Field, two large masses of ice that form the third largest expanse of ice on the planet after the Antarctica and Greenland, and to which belong well-known glaciers such as Perito Moreno, Exploradores, Calluqueo, Gray, San Rafael, O'Higgins, and of course the aforementioned Jorge Montt and Steffen.
This route counted among some of the most beautiful and least traveled routes in the country that during 3 days of adventure in the middle of lakes, mountains and Patagonian steppe turn this route into an incredible destination for the more adventurous.
The Route of Patagonian Parks is a new travel destination that will conquer the hearts of world travellers with its pristine landscapes, fauna, glaciers and grass lands. It offers an opportunity for development and of pride for the communities of southern Chile, their landscapes, culture and history.
