The Glacier San Rafael is the result of more than 30 thousand years of nature’s work and together with the Laguna they probably are the best and most worldwide known destination in Aisén, not only because of their beauty but because it is the closest glacier to the Equator, at sea level. The Laguna was discovered by Europeans in 1674 and connects to the Pacific Ocean through a small 6 by 9 miles entrance. We invite you to discover this wonder of the world on board of a high speed catamaran.
