The 170 km that separate Los Antiguos from Puerto Tranquilo can be covered by highway 265, which was opened last century, in the 90s, and has allowed us to reach the Southern Highway through “Paso de las Llaves” (Keyhole Pass), a key panoramic point of General Carrera Lake.
The whole trip is by ledge trail, with many curves, ascents and descents. It is an unpaved trail which allows us to circulate at very low speed and, thus, to appreciate better the astonishing landscapes of the lake at its different points.
That is why we believe that the BEST WAY of visiting Marble Cathedrals is by spending 1 night in Puerto Tranquilo. Actually, in this way, if weather conditions are not favorable, we can take the boat trip early the following day, when there is no strong wind yet.
The visit to Bertrand Lake and Baker and Neff rivers confluence proposed for Sunday, along with the other places, turns this proposal into… THE BEST ONE… UNDOUBTELY!!
