ABOUT US

How it all started… 

Kayak en Patagonia was born a decade ago, originally conceived by a group of friends and guides that were born and raised on the shores of the Señoret Channel. Their dream was to explore and navigate the hidden secrets that only locals knew and to show their beauty and wonders to the people that visit this region.

Today, after the many trips and unforgettable experiences that we have shared paddling with people from all over the world, we want to welcome you to Patagonia, a true paradise for Kayaking adventures.

In Kayak en Patagonia, we want to give you a "unique travel experience”

Incredible places, small groups, the best quality gear & food and awesome people on our team!
