Marble Caves kayak navigation

Marble Caves kayak navigation


On the shores of General Carrera lake, there is a marble formation that crosses from the east of Puerto Guadal up to the limit of the commune of Río Ibáñez. On both coasts, the water has carved caves and grottoes in the marble, creating an extraordinary landscape. Rock presents various shades of colour according to its content, although dominated by banks of white, high-purity. On the west bank of the lake we found Marble Caves Natural Sanctuary, considered by its geological value resources and unique formations. 

We will begin sailing from bahia Mansa, 5 km south of Puerto Río Tranquilo, paddling about 20 minutes up to the Chapel and then marble Cathedral. The kayak will give us freedom of kayaking through caves and small places within the rock massif, providing autonomy and independence for photography and enjoy this beautiful place.

We will advance through the marble tunnel until the end of our journey, returning to Bahía Mansa.
