A nice view of the Neff and Baker rivers meeting. Great photo op of beautiful waters and lots of energy. Its a ten minute walk from the road through a nice park. A good break after a long drive.

The Baker river is beautiful. The blue color is very special. It is nice to make a boat ride on Lago Bertrand. It is also nice to walk to the confluence of the rivers and to see the waterfall in the river.

When driving along River Baker we simply couldn't resist stopping alongside it and taking loads of photos as the colours are simply breathtaking.

The best river for trout fly fishing in all of Patagonia ! The whole river has spectacular views, clearest emerald waters, forests surrounding, and the Patagonia Bake Lodge to enjoy a week of fishing and relaxing.

The 'confluence point', where the deep-green/blue Baker River streams into the Chacabuco, is a spectacular sight. From the Carretera Austral it is about a 20 minute walk to the viewpoint.

The Rio Baker is beautiful from start (where it forms from the effluent of Lago Beltrand) to its end at Caleta Tortel 150 kilometers to the southwest. Throughout it has a distinctive green hue. The highway (Carretera Austral) is unpaved and not always for the...More
