We’ll head out from Castro to Chepu River where we’ll get familiar with the basics of handling our kayak and try out our safety equipment.
After this we´ll spend 3 hours kayaking through submerged temperate rain forests that boast an abundance of bird life, among other flora and fauna – all associated with this wet temperate ecosystem.
Finished the kayak we continue in the area of Chepu to visit a rural tourism spot (“Los senderos de Chepu”) where our host will be waiting for us with homemade lunch to recover energy before enjoying a 2 hours hike inside an old native forest where we´ll have plenty of chances to observe, or at least listen birds as Chucao tapaculo and the Black-throated Huet-huet.
In the afternoon, we return to Castro.
*NOTE: Kayak & equipment’s are delivered by the company Ecolodge Chepu Adventures that provides kayak services to Chiloetnico.
