We are located in the Huiros bay, in the heart of the Mountains' fjord, into the Alacalufes National Reserve.
To arrive we take a ferry to go across the Señoret channel to Antonio Varas peninsula located in front of Puerto Natales. Then we continue by car for 45 minutes through a gravel road (white line) until the embarking spot, where we’ll have a tasty lunch. Afterward we take a fast boat and navigate one and a half hour (orange line) until the end of the Resi fjord; the beginning of the “Alacalufe path”, named as the canoeist ancestors who inhabited all the fjord lands in the last 5,000 years, and used this pass to connect the fjord Resi with the Mountains’ fjord. Once in Resi, we disembark and hike for 30 minutes (green line) to reach the Acantilados lagoon, which is incased between huge rock walls, so it's only possible to go across by boat, taking five minutes to reach the other side where we hike for another hour and a half until the Huiros bay, where our exclusive floating Refuge “Explorador” is located.
The return to Puerto Natales is by the same route.
