Attractions:
The beautiful Quintupeu Fjord is located south of Puerto Montt. This place is where the German Ship “SMS Dresden” hid during the Malvinas Battle in the year 1915. The Fjord has a narrow entry and in its natural walls of 600 mts. high, long water falls and alerce trees can bee seen. Some of these trees can have up to 3.600 years of age and they are surrounded by flowers and other species, such as copihue, tepas, ulmos and lengas in the highest areas and here nature gives us an amazing view with volcanoes as the Yates and Hornopiren. The estuary and cliffs' view is something impressive, unforgettable and touching.
The Llancahué hot springs are located in the same named island, south of the Ciervo's Island. This hot springs have covered and open air swimming pools and they offer also a fascinating opportunity: take a bath in the Pacific Ocean, where its waters lessens the temperature. From this place we will have an exceptional view of the Llanchid Archipelago at sunset.
We will also visit the Rio Negro town, a peaceful and quaint village of this area. Its wooden houses, made of alerce's shingles, have shade colors that contrast gladly with the green vegetation of the place. In this village you will be able to walk down their streets.

The whole area is known because of the presence of Andean Glaciers and geological faults that conduced to the glacier erosion. Get on board and enjoy this weekend Cruise, were gastronomy and the landscape will be at your service.

Have fun onboard Skorpios.
