Paddling in the INCA Lagoon

kayaking the Inca Lagoon -Portillo
 

Description
Includes

Requirements
Observations

More than 500 years ago the Incas traveled through a great part of Chile and used this passage as a strategic way to cross the mountain range.  Traces of their existence in this place are evident from remains found in the Andes mountain range.  

Paddle in a sea kayak in a lagoon with this historical background at 2,800 meters above sea level, surrounded by gigantic Andean massifs that disappear in the crystal clear waters of the lake that is more than 500 feet deep.

You will be overtaken by the prevailing silence, the majestic condor flight and the snow capped cordillera.  We will experience unique sensations reserved only for us silent paddlers.

We meet at 7AM in Santiago (YAK office) and return the same day late in the afternoon (aprox 8PM).

Includes

  • Transportation in private vehicle from Santiago 
  • Sea kayak Guide during entire trip (NOLS courses, Wilderness First Responder first aid course). 
  • Navigation Equipment: Imported seakayaks from Canada, expedition models, with original rudder, spray skirt, paddles, high floatation life jackets, paddling jackets and wetsuit. 
  • Picnic during the paddling (cookies, sandwich,fruit and juice).

  • Ask about recommended gear list.
