Hidden Patagonia, Cochamo trek
Travel to Cochamo Valley in Chilean Patagonia, then venture further inland trekking into La Junta Valley - the Chilean Yosemite.
From your mountain lodge base you will be able to explore this stunning and remote valley, trekking along different mountain trails amongst the granite peaks of this hidden part of Patagonia.
The Cochamo Valley is located where the Andes merges with the Pacific Ocean forming the first Patagonian fjord. The innumerable lakes, rivers and mountains around the valley set an extraordinary stage for horseback excursions, trekking, cycling and sea kayaking.
The Cochamo Valley is only 90 Km from Puerto Varas and opens onto the Reloncavi Estuary. The valley is sparsely populated with fewer than 4,500 inhabitants and is relatively unknown outside the area, with limited road access.
This means that it is a trekker's paradise and the chances of meeting other walkers, apart from the locals, on the many mountain trails are minimal.
