About
Kayak en Patagonia was born a decade ago, originally conceived by a group of friends and guides that were born and raised on the shores of the Senoret Chanel. Their dream was to explore and navigate the hidden secrets that only locals knew and to show their beauty and wonders to the people that visit this region. Today, after the many trips and unforgettable experiences that we have shared paddling with people from all over the world, we want to welcome you to Patagonia, a true paradise for Kayaking adventures. In Kayak en Patagonia, we want to give you a "Travel Experience". We work with the best quality of gear, equipment and food on each of our trips. Our certified guides have the knowledge and qualification that is needed to give you a safe and unique experience.

I was a solo traveler who had planned a 4-day trip. Like many things in Patagonia, plans changed, and I ended up in a 2-day Serrano River overnight trip. It was outstanding!!!
Having written back and forth to Cristian quite a bit, I can tell you he is extremely knowledgeable and professional. I would love to come back and kayak with his company again.
My guide was Rodrigo, a personable, pleasant young man who has a ton of credentials. I have been paddling for perhaps 15 years, but hold no certification. Rodrigo and I were the only 2 on the trip (amazing!) so we went at my pace (fastest to finish the 26 mile river trek, he told me) and we had fun playing around in the tricky current and serpentine bends of this gem of a river. I lucked out again and we had perfect weather. It was beautiful paddling all day. The food was plentiful and high quality. The paddling equipment, tents, sleeping mat / bag / pillow couldn’t have been better.
My highlight was the private paddle in the Serrano Glacier lagoon. Words cannot explain how amazing this was. It thundered during the night & morning with its cravings, and to paddle between icebergs was u forgettable.
Kudos to Cristian and his team. Too knot hair company here. And because I went with them (in a solo kayak, no rudder), that credential alone gave me the credibility to paddle in a solo kayak in the Strait of Magellan. The guide there knew Cristian and Rodrigo and said he doesn’t let guests without certification in their own kayaks, but he’d make an exception for me. Thanks, guys!

My son (19) and I recently completed the 3 day/2 night trip on the Grey and Serrano rivers with the Kayak En Patagonia Crew.

It was an amazing experience and I highly recommend it. The team was extremely professional and every detail was carefully considered. We were not highly experienced paddlers, but our guide, Will Copestake, talked us through every aspect of the trip. Over the 3 days, we paddled an estimated 47 miles, most of which was in the back country of Bernardo O'Higgins. On our 2nd day, we saw 2 people during our 7 hours on the river. The scenery is undescribable, the bird life unparalelled and all the equipment is top notch. While the weather was at times a challenge, Will went out of his way to make sure we were prepped for what was coming and that our campsites were warm, cozy and comfortable. If you are looking for a truly unique experience, take the plunge.

I first want to preface that my career background is 20 years in hospitality, concierge, estate management, trip planning and the vacation rental industry, so I have a lot of experience in the hospitality and tourism business. Leslie and her crew were A++++. We chose to do the self guided W trek with the full day kayak add on. I was most impressed with Leslie's willingness to answer all kinds of questions pre-trip, and she always got back to me promptly. We felt fully taken care of and confident in her organization and planning.

Side note for travelers, we highly recommend the bunk rooms or private bungalows instead of camping. Even if the camping is the only thing available when she books for you, you can ask for an upgrade when you arrive at the destination. There were a lot of cancellations due to weather on the O part of the trek so we were able to have a private room each night, even though we originally booked camping only.

This was one of the best trips we've ever done. Highly recommended! It was epic, and I would recommend Hello Patagonia to friends and family, hands down!

Thank you Leslie!

We experienced beauty on a grand scale during our 4 day kayaking trip. The quality of our 5-star British Canoe Union guide was not to be underestimated. Jeremy’s intimate knowledge of the waters we were on assisted in making this perhaps the single most spectacular trip we’ve ever been on. He was well aware of the currently water and wind conditions and was able to adapt our adventure for what nature provided. The meals that he provided were outstanding, especially considering that Jeremy was cooking in the backcountry. All provided gear was first rate including both the paddling equipment and the camping equipment. We experienced this trip in the middle of March, 2020 and Chile was shutting down while we were actually on the water. Nevertheless, Kayak en Patagonia came up with plans so that we were able to complete the trip. Would we come back? Yes!!! We’ve already booked for 2021.

I can’t say enough good things about Kayak en Patagonia and their sister company Hello Patagonia! We just completed a 9 day self-guided tour in Torres del Paine park ( the O circuit) followed by a day of kayaking on Grey Lake. Fabulous trip. Leslie was amazing and made everything so easy. She offered us 3 options: all refugios (except two locations where they only have tents), all tents with all gear supplied or carrying everything ourselves. Furthermore we could do half and half which is what we ended up doing-3 Rifugio’s (stayed 2 nights at Grey) and 4 campsites with all equipment provided. Other companies try to up sell you a guide which you absolutely do not need unless you really have no experience at all ( in which case you don’t want to do this trek at all as it is long and a bit rigorous) or you just want that service. Leslie was super easy to communicate with. Very prompt at answering emails. Flexible about our options. Organized. Knowledgeable and enthusiastic. I emailed her a bunch of general questions like how to get a SIM card or hotel recommendations and she was super helpful with all of that too. Plus she is just a really nice person which was confirmed when we met her in person to go over our trip the night before we started.
Bottom line both Hello Patagonia! and Kayak en Patagonia provide excellent service. Highly recommended!!

Cristian was highly responsive to all our enquires both related to kayaking and not related to kayaking.
On the day the kayak trainers Will, Denisse and Felipe were so lovely and helped us with everything. These guys know there stuff and even with little to no kayaking experience you feel incredibly safe. A delicious lunch was provided and Will is a Patagonia expert, ask any questions historically and geologically and he will answer them.
Highly recommend them for Torres del Paine kayaking.

Do it! At first we were hesitant to commit due to the price, however the day trip was worth every penny. The company is incredibly professional and organized. We had an amazing guide, Will. Every minute in the kayak was a jaw dropping once in a lifetime experience. Can not recommend Kayak en Patagonia enough. Truly everything you could want from a kayaking experience.

Our tour with Kayak en Patagonia was perfect from start to finish. It was easy to book and Christian was very helpful and provided us with all the information we needed. We want to thank Will who was our guide for the one day Grey tour and for making this kayak experience surely a one to remember!!

We had an incredible all day kayak experience on Lake Grey and Grey River! Our first reservation was cancelled due to wind and it was super easy to reschedule. The communication was efficient and clear. Our guides on the trip, Leslie and Rod were experienced, knowledgeable and very friendly. They always had our safety in mind while helping us to have an incredible time near the icebergs and paddling the small river rapids. The lunch provided was quite tasty and they even provided a post paddling beer. Highly recommend this trip!!

Our favorite part was kayaking among the ice in the lake below the glacier the third day of our tour. Our guide, Will, was the best guide we have ever had, (we have been on guided tours in Alaska, Scandinavia, Croatia, New Zealand). We had not river kayaked much but his expertise, knowledge, advice, support made the whole trip outstanding. He, Magda and Jen made our comfort their priority. Kayak en Patagonia and Hello Patagonia were top tier in responsiveness and service. They are highly recommended.
