“crossing on a barge with no motor”
Reviewed April 9, 2014

There is a crossing of the Baker on a barge that hangs from a cable. It crosses in both directions with the current. We were en route to the Cochrane General Store-- don't miss it!

“Amazingly Beautiful”
Reviewed April 7, 2014

This is one of Chile's most important rivers. The government is considering allowing HidroAysen to build two hydro electric dams on the river, changing it forever. Hopefully, this will not be approved. But if it is, go see the river before it is changed forever.

“An amazing Sight”
Reviewed March 7, 2014

Fast moving, powerful, beautiful in any weather. Colourful. An ever changing constant wonder to be photographed or just enjoyed.
Make sure you have time to visit the confluencia. Large loud rolling waterfall above the confluence of the Neff river joining the Baker

“Baker River”
Reviewed February 9, 2014

The color of the Baker River was the biggest surprise in a 2 week period of surprises that we experienced and enjoyed in the patagonia region of Chile. The glacier clear water with copper looks like Caribbean water. Unbelievable. We pray the conservationist in this country are able to prevent others from building dams in this natural wonder.
