Kayak to Catedrales de Marmol (Marble Cathedral)

A cobalt blue temple created by nature whose walls is of the network of water-filled marble caverns show just how magnificent the precious geography of our planet can be. It is the water that formed the unique shapes of the marble walls,' explained Ms Waidehofer in her book on the caverns, Blue Light. Light bounces into the caverns and strikes the carved marble walls, creating this enchanting lightshow. Geographically it is located at 46 ° 39 '30 "South Latitude and 76 ° 37' 30" West Longitude, at an altitude of 350 meters above the level of sea, with an approximate area - according to the decree - of 50 hectares. The climate of the area presents an average of 950 mm of rainfall distributed throughout the year. The geological resource is the feature most relevant in this Sanctuary, both in the Puntilla el Marmol sector, and in numerous points from the group of islands called Panichini. Declared sanctuaries, Marble Chapels are calcium carbonate mineral formations that over the years have been eroded by the waters of General Carrera Lake, creating these navigable islets through the use of small navigations.

Once inside the caverns, you’ll see the brightness of the water is reflected in the walls and an iridescent turquoise hue covered everything, including your own self. The slight internal light highlights the irregular openings of the caves and achieves a very special effect.

It moves from one sector to another, some wide and the others narrow. When inside Cathedral, you’ll feel warmer. When the lake has no waves, even the kayaks venture to get there.

The climate of Patagonia is very variable, which usually goes from a very clear day with a pleasant temperature to a slightly rainy cold, therefore, customers need to be well prepared for activities, using clothes and personal equipment to face this variety of weather conditions during the visit to places where we will make the excursion.
