When you go trekking to the mountains, normally you can find mountain refuges to cover the basic needs, as shelter, meals and sleeping berths. But, what if instead of going to the mountains, you would like to go trekking to the fjords? And not just any fjords, but the remote and uncharted fjords of Patagonia!...Would it be possible?
A question we asked ourselves and have answered with facts!
We have set the first and only floating Refuge in one of the most remote areas, as is Kawesqar National Park, making it possible to go trekking and explore the amazing Mountains fjord and surroundings with the basic needs covered. Such an innovative idea that is unique in Chile and the world!
"Explorador Patagonia" is a wooden boat covered with fiberglass, optimally equipped with all the necessary implementation and comfort for different kind of expeditions that require to navigate and explore autonomously the fjords of Patagonia for weeks. In November of each year we navigate to the Mountains fjord and anchor this boat in the heart of this fjord and we don't move it again until March, to make it become our Floating Refuge during these months.
During the season, this Refuge is our home and our base of operations for our trekking expeditions in the area.
