Carretera austral medium Carretera Austral

Chile's southern highway

The Carretera Austral runs for 1,200km through Chilean Patagonia, all the way from Puerto Montt to the great glaciers of Villa O'Higgins. This is Patagonia at its most authentic and beautiful. Gauchos herding cattle, glaciers tumbling off mountain tops, turquoise rivers and warm hospitality are all part of the landscape of Chile's southern highway. We have been travelling this road since 1995, which means we're fussy about our trips. Rather than go through middle-men, at Pura Aventura, we work directly with each hotel, guide, restaurant giving you access to the ultimate tailor made trip in Aysen.
