Turismo Vientos del Sur is located in Mallin Grande, a village 80 kilometres from Chile Chico and 30 kilometres from Puerto Guadal, in the Aysen Region. We are surrounded by the beautiful General Carrera Lake, farmland and livestock fields, rivers, valleys and the imposing mountains of the Chilean Patagonia.

Access

Crossing the General Carrera Lake.

Heading from Coyhaique or Balmaceda you need to take the Carretera Austral towards south until you get to the intersection with the route X-65, which leads to Puerto Ibañez. In Puerto Ibañez you have to take the ferry La Tehuelche or La Pilchero to cross the General Carrera Lake (duration approx. 2hours) in order to get to Chile Chico. From Chile Chico you have to take the CH-265 route for about 80km until you get to Mallín Grande. Our property lies on the right hand side 1,5km before reaching the village of Mallin Grande.

Recommendations for your journey

Plan your journey with time in advance, the region of Aysén is one of the vastest territories of Chile and in general the distances are measured by the time you need and not in kilometres. Have in mind that big parts of the roads are gravel roads, which can be in bad conditions eventually, therefore it is recommended to use a 4×4 vehicle and drive with caution. Furthermore consider that in a lot of parts of the Carretera Austral and its connecting routes there is no phone reception, nor internet access. As well you should bring money in cash, due to the fact that lots of establishments do not have the possibility to pay with credit or debit cards and inform yourself about points of service and ATMs on your route. Finally take notice of the weather conditions can vary quickly even though it is summer.

And the most important… Enjoy your journey, respect nature and discover the local culture!
