This route was designed by Bienes Nacionales, granting an important value to the ecosystem of heritage significance in Chilean Patagonia. This route invites you to visit and enjoy two areas of spectacular beauty, landscapes without human intervention and historical and cultural places present in the territory.
Through the La Junta – Puerto Raúl Marín Balmaceda route, you will be able to visit places that were the scenes of ancient settlers, who with great effort managed to survive in these remote and inhospitable corners of Patagonia.
This circuit unites the lush interior valleys of the Junta with the spectacular seascape of Puerto Raúl Marín Balmaceda. One of its accesses is through the north entrance of La Junta, there is a road to the west that leads to the town of Puerto Raúl Marín Balmaceda.
The 75 km journey borders the meandering Palena River at all times. On the way you will find the Garrao channel and the Piti Palena fjord. It is necessary to cross the Palena River in a small ferry, free of charge, but with limited hours (we suggest you consult the Raúl Marín Balmaceda Police or the Board Office for the operating hours of the barge, since in summer the hours are extended). Puerto Raúl Marín Balmaceda is a town located in front of the sea, formed by the delta of the Palena River. It is the starting point for sailing that allows you to see the abundant birdlife in the sector, appreciate the sector of the bar and the Melimoyu volcano. This heritage route has attractive landscapes on the banks of the river, huge waterfalls and dense vegetation.
