This trip,... More

Hola This is a great surprise that you take such a long time to analize your experience with us considering what you told me personally during the trip and during the return in the ferry boat, so we have a huge opportunity to improve in our work. Please also consider as a requirement to participate in our trips : Normally... More

My friend and I went on the 4 day sea kayaking tour of Northern Patagonia fjords and had an awesome time. Juan is a very experienced guide, highly focused on safety (he had quality equipment and starts off with a safety tutorial), and deeply caring of the local people who's homes we visited. It was nice to have a combination... More

I did the 4 day 3 night camping kayak trip in Parque Pumalin. I didn't think Juan was a guide that empowered his clients, rather he talked down to them and at them, especially the women of the group. While some scenery was lovely, the interactions with the guide, redundant food and minimal paddling the 1st and 2nd day prevent... More

Would it be ok to you to be what, would it be ok to you to test an assistance rescue shifting your kayak and experience it upside-down (or overcocme your doubt to do ?). You will make it! Juan will guide you well. Would it be great to explore a beautiful landscape, seeing sea-lions, penguins and dolphins around? You will... More

We took the one day Revonclavi Fjord tour. From start to finish the tour was amazing. Juane picked us up from our hotel, and shared some history, conservation, and culture with us on the beautiful drive out to the Fjord. We were the only two on a group tour, so we ended up with a private outing! The kayaks were... More

Juanfe is a fantastic guide, and we had a great time with him! He tailored our 4-day kayaking trip to perfectly suit our group. We kayaked through some amazing scenery, met several local families, ate delicious home-cooked meals, saw lots of wildlife and learned a lot about this less-visited region of the country. I highly recommend this trip to anyone... More

My 17 year old Son and I went on the 4 day trip through Northern Patagonia with Juanfe in April. We learned a lot about the Chilean culture and way of life as we kayaked through the most amazing fjord. The peace and tranquility of the water and surrounding area was nothing that I had ever experienced before. From the... More

We did 4d sea kayaking trip to North Pumalin with Yak Expediciones in mid-February and this trip definitely became one of the main highlights of our long travel through South America.

We did the 4 day kayaking trip to the Northern Pumalin Park with Juanfe in March. We had one of the best experiences we've had in Chile. We have 2 small kids (9 and 6) and Juanfe was great with them, getting them really involved. We saw all the wildlife you could expect, dolphins, sea lions, penguins, pelicans, sea birds,... More
