      Absolutely fantastic reloncavi fjord kayak
      We kayaked reloncavi fjord. Our guide was phenomenal. He was patient and upbeat with our slower pace. Our kids were tired partway through and he arranged a closer pickup for us with no issues. When one boat got a broken rudder partway through going against the wind he helped us across by helping to steer the back end. This was an incredible experience and also the beat packed lunch we have had on a trip in chile.

      Wonderful intro to Chile and Patagonia
      This was a family vacation including parents, daughter and husband- 4 of us. We wanted an experience in the Northern Patagonia district trekking and sea kayaking. This was our first excursion to the area, for 7 nights and 8 days, from Puerto Varas to the village of Chaiten. We are so pleased with our journey, and gradually want to work our way down Patagonia from where we left off. Working and travelling with Jacinthe (Jass) and Javier was great! Every day was an adventure and a new challenge with a great opportunity to relax as we didn't have to do all the organization and planning. We just had to show up and get involved. Loved it and can't wait to do the next part! Extremely well done!

      German anyone?
      This area was originally settled by Germans. There is a large German influence here in the architecture of the surrounding area. You will see why it is called the City of Roses.

      Highly recommend full day kayak with Jass Puerto Varas
      We had a fabulous full day kayak trip with Jass and highly recommend this tour! Jass is vivacious, engaging and great fun to spend a day with, as well as being very knowledgeable about the area, its history, birds, trees, fishing industries, Chilean politics, etc. I had read the reviews on TripAdvisor and everything was just as described and better. We thoroughly enjoyed the delicious lunch stop at a small family farm where the family and Jass made us feel very welcome. Jass even arranged transport to the airport for us at the end of our adventure. From being picked up at our hostel at 9am to being dropped at the airport at the end of the day, everything about this tour was seamless (and she did all this for us on Christmas Eve). We learned a lot, enjoyed kayaking in spectacular scenery and thoroughly enjoyed Jass’s guide services and company.

      Great Kayak Experience with Jass
      I met Jass in Puerto Varas during an outdoor expo downtown, the French Canadian owner of an adventure travel company. I enjoyed speaking with her and booked an all-day kayak trip on a fjord about an hour away from Puerto Varas. It was an excellent experience: great scenery, well organized, and well paced. We had lunch along the route with a family of Chilean farmers Jass befriended a few years ago. Meeting them and being guests in their home was a highlight of our trip. They gave us a tour of the farm. Jass is passionate about this place and we loved her enthusiasm. Highly recommended!

      2 incredible days trekking and kayaking. A must in Puerto Varas!
      Firstly If you want to book an incredible experience please contact Jass for the best days! We really researched our trip carefully and decided to go with Jass and we are so glad we did! We did a 1 day trek Orsono Paso Desolacion. Our guide was fantastic! So organised , knowledgeable, professional, warm and funny. Such superb attention to detail. The 1 day kayaking to Reloncavi Fjord ranks as one if the best outdoor days ever. We had blue skies and perfect conditions. It was so much fun to be with Jass’s guides once again. The description of lunch at the farm is understated on the website!! It was brilliant but you just have to experience it yourselves. Also we have left knowing so much of Chile’s history, stories and politics. I have never written such a good review of anything. I ran out of “incredibles” and associated synonyms! Such a pleasure to meet you and spend time with you all . Huge thanks and good luck with the rest of the season !

      Peaceful Half Day of Kayaking
      I had an amazing time kayaking Laguna La Poza with Jacynthe! It was completely enjoyable and the views were beautiful. Jacynthe really went the extra mile to schedule a tour with only me, a solo traveler, in the winter on what turned out to be a great weather day. She really cared that I enjoyed my time in Puerto Varas. Now I wish I was here in summer so that I could go to some of the longer treks or adventures! Highly recommend.

      Unique kayaking experience!
      We had a great time kayaking with Jass in estero reconclavi. Thw views were amazing, and she is patient with our beginner level speed. She's also knowledgeable about where the current in the water is headed so we knew when to paddle more heavily to avoid being swept away from the water. We went to a local farmer's home for lunch, which was really unique as well. Overall, it's a great time and I would recommend booking kayaking with Jass for anyone visiting the area.

      1/2 day: KAYAK LAGUNA LA POZA
      Jass was right on time, which was really nice. She is really friendly and we connected quickly. The drive to the lagoon is short. When we got there we were really surprised with the quality of the equipment. There were all this pro thingys like a skirt so we didn’t get wet, also mittens for the paddle. Even though the weather didn’t help us a lot, we had fun and were fully aware previously of those conditions. We couldn’t go to the Llanquihue Lake because the current was really strong. If you really want to go kayaking there you should check the weather conditions, but we didn’t mind not going. Jass had contact with me multiple times via mail, so we felt like she was really responsible. Finally, the downside was we had some problems with the rudder of the kayak. She helped us even though we were on the water, but it was a little uncomfortable for my partner. We don’t think it’s her fault, and was really helpful when we needed help. When we ended the tour it was extremely cold but Jass gave us coffee, cake (she baked it) and nuts. Finally, we recommend you this tour a 100 percent. The view was breathtaking, we had so much fun and we think it’s a MUST. (SHE TOOK PICTURES OF US, so we didn’t have to take our cellphones with us. We find this a plus)

      Excellent day kayaking
      We did the full day kayak trip on Reloncavi Fjord and thoroughly enjoyed the whole day. Our guide was very good and knowledgeable, some lovely scenery and we stopped for lunch at a local farm. A perfect relaxing day. Would highly recommend this tour.

      Half Day Kayak tour
      Just finished a wonderfully enjoyable Kayak with Jacynthe at the lagoon near Puerto Varas. I would highly recommend booking with JASS when in the area. Even if you have not Kayaked before, it is a great way to see the Lake and Lagoon from the water. Jacynthe was professional and informative and I would like to personallt thank her, for taking me solo, in what is just out of season for this area.

      Two great trips!
      We did two fantastic day tours with our guide, Alex. We did the hike on Desolation Pass which was uphill for the first hour or so and then downhill the remainder of the time. The path gave excellent views of the volcano for many directions as well as the lake. On the second day, we did a kayak tour in the fjords. We had never been in a a kayak, but Alex taught us all we needed to know (it is pretty simple). The current and winds were flowing in the direction to support our travel, so this made it an easy route. We stopped for lunch at the home of a local family, and it was interesting to see their way of life on the fjord. Overall, I would recommend the experiences!

      Highlight of our vacation
      We did a full-day sea kayaking trip to the Reloncavi Fjord during perfect weather conditions: no wind, sunny but not too hot. Our guide Alex was amazing: fluent in 3 languages (English, French, Spanish), super knowledgeable, and made sure that every single trip participant had an amazing time. From all the things we experienced on our 14-day Chile trip, this was the absolute highlight.

      Great Couple of Days Kayaking and Hiking
      We enjoyed 2 great days in the Reloncavi Fjord and Desolation Pass. Beautiful views, sealions and a dolphin in great weather for the kayaking with a good lunch provided by a friendly local farming family. It was really interesting to see around their farm and learn about their way of life. The easy hike through desolation pass went through great scenery topped off with a swim in Lago Todos Los Santos. Alex was a great guide, the kayaks were top of the range and we were well looked after throughout. Highly recommended.

    Amazing experience with Jass and Chloe kayaking and hiking! Our family of 5 was able to spend our holidays with Jass and Chloe. Chloe is the best! We eased in with a 1/2 day kayak around La Posa which is beautiful and had a nice view of the volcano Orsorno on the lake at the end. The next day we went on a full hike (11.5 miles :))) thru the rainforest ending at the lake deep within the rainforest. So beautiful and got to work off some calories. The whole family loved it (kids ages 22,20,17). Thank you Jass and Chloe for an amazing and active holiday!! Highly recommend!!!

    We had such a lovely time Kayaking in the Lagoon with Chloe. It was a peaceful morning of bird watching, kayaking through willow tree tunnels and enjoying the water. Chloe is kind and knowledgable, we really enjoyed her as our guide. From start to finish, the whole trip was well planned out. Definitely recommend!
