We depart Yan Kee Way Lodge to our launch site on the slower stretches of the Petrohué River, following the south shore of Lake Llanquihue. We have spectacular
views of Lake Llanquihue and the volcanoes Osorno, Puntiagudo, Tranador and Calbuco. Passing through the small town of Ensenada, we head southward. We are but 30 minutes
travel time, by road, from the Pacific Ocean into which the Petrohué flows.
The meandering course of the Petrohué covers much more territory and affords a more leisurely passage through the valley. Our drive to the river takes us
through the Petrohué valley where we see European style farmlands planted among the jungle like forests of Ulmo Trees. During some seasons, these trees are laden with
fragrant white flours -- the source of this regions’ famous Ulmo honey.
Upon arrival at our point of departure we are provided with safety instructions for our floating expedition. We raft or cata-raft the Petrohué River for
approximately 6 hours until we reach Ralún where the Petrohué joins the Pacific Ocean in the estuary of the fiord Reloncaví. During our trip, we will enjoy impressive views of
the volcanoes and the flora and fauna of this region. In Ralún we will visit the thermal waters located along side the river. Picnic lunch. Return to Yan Kee Way
Lodge. This is a trip for the entire family.
