At 7:45 a.m. we depart Yan Kee Way Lodge for a 15-minute trip to Petrohué. Petrohué was established as small port by the early pioneers of this region, on the shores of Todo Los
Santos Lake. Upon arrival, we assemble on the shoreline and receive a briefing on our expedition and collect our equipment for the Canyoning expedition. We then board our boat and cruise
along the shoreline of the lake for approximately 15-minutes until we arrive at the beach along side of the River León. At the river, we will make a final security check of our equipment and
receive technical and safety instructions. Our expedition really gets underway with the ascent of this steep and exciting canyon and river as we make our way through its’ amazingly crystal
The destination and goal of the 1st half of our expedition is the “Pozon”, with its’ grand waterfall which cascades down from an altitude of more than 131
feet. To attain our goal, we have to negotiate a number of different obstacles including waterfalls, climbs, swimming against the current in several parts of the river, and a variety of jumps into
the river to make our way upward. Once we reach the Pozon, we’ll relax, eat our lunch to gather our strength while appreciating the special beauty of this temperate rainforest.
The descent is even more adventurous. We will be jumping into numerous pools as we make our way back down the river canyon, rappelling across waterfalls, and floating down many
sections of the river, until we return to our starting point. This adventure provides you with an intimate experience with nature in the midst of the flora and fauna of a vast temperate
rainforest—a cool Jungle. Back to Yan Kee Way Lodge.
