Victoria Island and Myrtle Forest
Knowing Victoria Island and witness the spectacle of Myrtle Forest, is a pleasure that has already been experienced by millions of visitors to the National Park, but this island still looks intact storage conditions to the next tourists arrive to Puerto Anchorena for disembark and cross it.
Setting off from Pañuelo Port and after sailing for about an hour, we get to Quetrihué Península where you visit a unique myrtle forest which is considered the only one left in the world. While walking along a wooden trail you can appreciate these hundred-year-old species. The myrtle is a bush that grows the size of a tree. It is cinnamon-colored and features a thin bark that comes off and reveals some white spots underneath which make the myrtles unique in themselves. At the end of the trail, you can visit the famous “Casita del Bosque”.
Then we sail for about 40 more minutes to Victoria Island and disembark at Puerto Anchorena. You will be able to visit a nursery of conifers and other species, enjoy natural viewpoints and walk along trails which unfold amazing beauty. One of the trails leads to Playa del Toro (Bull Beach) where you can see cave paintings and relax at a beach of volcanic sand.
During the trip, you will be accompanied by our professional guides from the National Park.
