The Marble Chapels and the Exploradores Glacier

Marble Chapels and the Exploradores Glaciers

After breakfast you leave to Puerto Tranquilo. It is a beautiful drive along the northern shores of Lake Carrera, passing Lake Negro and the Leones River.

Just before arriving at Puerto Tranquilo, at one hour from El Mirador de Guadal, you can (weather permitting) take a boat tour on Lake Carrera to the Marble Caves, an intriguing geological formation formed by an island of marble polished by the turquoise colored water of the lake. The tour will last about an hour after which you could have a coffee at Puerto Tranquilo.

At the end of the path you will arrive at a platform from where you will be able to enjoy the great view at the Exploradores Glacier.
