A diamond in the rough
South of Puerto Montt, surrounded by majestic fjords, Puerto Chacabuco looks more like Norway than Northwest Patagonia. The town’s history as an important fishing village still holds true today. And with a population of just 1,200, Azamara® guests can expect a truly immersive experience on shore.
Plunging waterfalls. Fathomless gorges. Dramatic coastlines. Puerto Chacabuco is your gateway to some of Chile’s most stunning natural wonders. Don’t miss the Río Simpson National Preserve: a protected park that boasts all three; plus, some of the best fly fishing in the world. A visit to Aiken del Sur Private Park promises the same, with an enchanting opportunity to get back to nature at serene Lake Riesco.
For wildlife lovers, a 20-minute boat ride will whisk you to Deer Island, home to one of the largest deer species in the world—the red deer. While the island’s deer population is estimated to be about 200, they’re known to be shy: so, keep your eyes peeled, and your shutter finger at the ready. For an indoor adventure, make your way to the Regional Museum of Patagonia where you can view photographs and articles that chronicle the history of Northwest Patagonia’s pioneer era.
