Hornopiren, Rio Negro, located at the foot of the Hornopiren Volcano. Later, we

any luck, observe Toninas . . . the Southern dolphin!
Day 3: We proceed on to Cahuelmo. On the way, we will visit an impressive
sea lion rookery, home to more than 200 sea lions that will be just meters away
from the yacht! In Cahuelmo, we will visit the hot springs and might even indulge
in a barbecue at the Quincho Country Home, an exclusive hotel just outside the

try your hand at fly fishing.
