Traveling Solo?

You’re in good company. Solo travelers typically make up about half of our small groups. With curiosity at the center of our experiences, there’s a natural camaraderie that develops over the course of a trip. We have two options for you: 

Shared Room (subject to the latest Covid-19 guidelines): You'll be matched with another solo traveler of the same gender.

Private Room: Have your own room, subject to availability, for a supplemental cost of $525 per person. After booking your trip, please request a private room when you fill out your traveler information form and we’ll add the option to your booking and final balance. 

Note that for the two nights at the Caleta Gonzalo cabins, a single room cannot be guaranteed and you will most likely need to share with another traveler.

 

Activity Level

Travelers should feel comfortable walking 2–4 miles over the course of each day and spending most of the day outdoors. The longest hike with be on Day 8 (4 hours; 3miles/5km) and can be optional. Travelers should also be comfortable taking ferries, and if continuing to the extension, will have an opportunity to kayak.

Accommodations

We’ll be staying at locally owned boutique hotels throughout the trip. In Pumalín Park, we’ll be staying two nights at the Caleta Gonzalo Cabins. There will be two or three people per cabin with a shared bathroom. Note that wifi and single rooms are not available at these cabins. Keep in mind that in these more remote locations, many amenities, such as the types of pharmacies or grocery stores you expect in a larger city, will not be available.

Arrival & Departure

Our trip begins in Puerto Montt the morning of Day 1, when we’ll be meeting at the airport and transferring by private vehicle to Puerto Varas. Your flight should arrive in Puerto Montt no later than noon.

Our trip concludes in the morning on Day 10. We recommend departing any time that day (transfer from Puerto Varas back to Puerto Montt). 

*Airport transfers are only provided if arriving & departing on the trip dates, or if pre/post arrangements have been made through Atlas Obscura.
