Saturday - Yan Kee Way Lodge - Horseback ride - Boat Trip & Wine Tasting Dinner

Following breakfast, we depart Yan Kee Way Lodge at 9:45 a.m. for “Los Volcanes Park.  Our expedition is a 4 and one-half hour horseback ride through a beautiful temperate rain forest.  Our mounts will take us on trails through the pristine forest where you will see beautiful color contrasts between the red Notros and the white Ulmos flower interspersed in the deep green of the native trees and foliage.  Our expedition will take us to the lookout known as “Salto de Piedras” or Rock Waterfall.  At a height of 328 feet above the Rio Blanco, we will be surrounded by a pristine landscape as we enjoy the turquoise colored waterfall from the Andes Mountains known as “The Angle”.  We will enjoy the beautiful views of the volcanoes Osorno and Calbuco.  If you feel up to it, you may take a dip in Angel waterfall.  Its’ cold, fresh mountain water, is loaded with healthy minerals.  After enjoying this scenic spot, nestled in the Andes, we return to our point of departure and to Yan Kee Way Lodge. At approximately 3:30 p.m., we depart in a boat for a cruise on Lake Llanquihue Lago Llanquihue, which is the third largest natural lake in South America.  Small towns, many of which incorporate the word “Puerto” in their names, surround it.  Puerto Varas, founded in 1854 by German colonists in their efforts to colonize this beautiful, verdant but forest covered land.  In the years thereafter, additional small towns sprung up around natural ports, using the lake as the only means of transportation in the area.  Yan Kee Way Lodge is located in the South East corner of the Lake, in a small bay or “ensenada” which was once the port of Ensenada, and now is a small village with the same name.

Our Lodge location is unique; perhaps the only place in the world like it. Volcano Osorno terminates at the waters’ edge, forming the North Eastern shoreline of the bay. It is one of, it not the only, places in the world where one can see a volcano in a stand alone setting.  The most similar comparisons are Fuji in Japan and Mt. Rainier in Washington State.  Unlike other volcanoes, Osorno is not lost amidst a surrounding mountain range.  One can see precisely where this 8,730-foot volcano begins and ends.

Our expedition departs from the beach in front of Yan Kee Way lodge.  We will have the opportunity to appreciate the scale of the lake and its surroundings.  It’s easy to imagine what the early day colonists must have felt in their small boats as we look at the wooded shore line and contemplate their thoughts as they moved across the expanse of this lake using oars, the wind and, finally, steam for propulsion.  We will enjoy a pleasant trip along the shore of the Lake, were we will see beautiful landscapes near the impressive cone of Osorno Volcano.  The lush native vegetation covers the many lava fingers that fan out, reaching out into the lake, creating, and a series of small coves along the shoreline.  Depending on the day and the season you will spot local wild life along the wooded shoreline.  The waters are clean and clear. One may see through the water, to depths of over 30 feet, to the lake bottom.  During the fall, you may have the opportunity to spot salmon and trout that use the fine bottom sands and underwater springs for their spawning grounds.  We will return to Yan Kee Way in time for our 7:00 p.m. Wine Tasting and dinner.  Enjoy the facilities of our spa before retiring for the night.

Sunday - Yan Kee Way Lodge - activities - Photographic Expedition & return to Airport

After our breakfast we depart Yan Kee Way Lodge and travel through Villa Ensenada to the skirts of Volcano Osorno, to the entrance of Vincente Perez Rosales National Park and the Laguna Verde area.  Our expedition takes us along the skirt of the volcano, where we will enjoy the native plant and animal life until we arrive at a location known as “Los Pilleyos”.  We continue into Vincente Perez Rosales National Park to visit an area where we may see the glacial run-off from the volcanoes’ slopes and glaciers, together with other points of interest.  We will then proceed to the famous Petrohué waterfalls or “Los Saltos”. The falls were created, first by the enormous lava flows of Osorno Volcano, which cut-off the flow of water between Lake Todo Los Santos and Lago Llanquihue and formed a new outflow from Todo Los Santos, now known as the Petrohué River.  The volcanic flows created a rise in the land that immediately came under attack by the power of the river. The lava was, and is being sculpted into unusual forms by the power of river. The flora and fauna of the temperate rainforest abound in this area.  We will take short hikes to “Los enamorados” and “Carrilemu” where we will learn about the different types of rocks, vegetation, and animals that live in this temperate rainforest.  We’ll complete our expedition with a to visit Todos Los Santos Lake or as it is also known--“Emerald Lake,”--so named for the deep emerald color of its waters. You will want to take photos from the beach while enjoying picnic lunch.  Return to Yan Kee Way Lodge. This is a special expedition for the family and for those who love the outdoors and wish to see and photograph the flora and fauna of this area.  Return to Yan Kee Way Lodge for lunch. Free time to enjoy our comfortable accommodations.  Transfer “El Tepual” airport.
