Kayaking

From the most placid to the most exhilarating experience, kayaking in Central and South America runs the gamut. Kayaking is one of the activities we include in almost all of our multisport trips to the Galapagos and Patagonia. It is also a popular activity that kayakers seek out on their own during the free time we build into many itineraries.

WARM AND BLISSFUL

Warm-weather kayaking is a pleasant experience that passengers get to have in many locations where Southern Explorations travels. In the turquoise waters of the Galapagos, you may find yourself paddling around marine turtles, sea lions and fur seals. The archipelago offers sheltered coves and calm shorelines where wildlife encounters are endless. While kayaking in Puerto Villamil’s protected bay on Isabela Island, you may encounter Galapagos penguins, sea turtles and rays. During four days of our 12+-day Galapagos by Land and Sea trip, we arrange your days so you may spend them according to your interests. If you’d like to paddle every day, we’ll make it happen.  Some of Panama’s best kayaking is found in Bocas del Toro, located on the Caribbean coast near the border with Costa Rica and a place so beautiful, TV shows like to film episodes of “Survivor” here.

KAYAKING AND MORE

In many locations that Southern Explorations travels, a lot of other activities beckon on the way to paddle or afterwards. For instance, north of Quito, you may take a 1-day kayaking excursion on San Pablo Lake, one of Ecuador’s largest, stopping at one of the world’s top craft markets, Otavalo, afterwards. Even on trips that are almost all about the kayaking such as our 8-day Amazon Kayaking Adventure, passengers spend time getting acquainted with the indigenous Amazon lifestyle from the Huaorani people and take night walks in the rainforest to search for nocturnal species. The guided trip ventures into wildlife-rich lakes and flooded forests. At the end of the day kayakers enjoy forest to table cuisine and camp at the Shinipuno Lodge The trip is considered moderate to challenging but requires no previous kayaking experience. While enjoying a stay in Buenos Aires, kayaking enthusiasts may schedule a guided half-day paddling excursion in the Parana delta, the world’s fifth largest river delta, located just outside of town where the scenery and bird watching are spectacular and the water markets one-of-a-kind. On weekends, the excursion includes a stop at the Puerto de Frutos crafts market.

COOL AND BLISSFUL

There is kayaking, and then there is kayaking amongst ice bergs like in Torres del Paine’s Grey Lake. The scale, the colors and the silence make it an unforgettable experience. In Patagonia, you may also sidle up near a glacier. While visiting the mountain town of Bariloche and Nahuel Huapi National Park in Northern Patagonia, you have your choice of lakes. One memorable paddle is a full day of kayaking in the park’s scenic namesake lake and a picnic on shore. Tierra del Fuego National Park is blissful too aboard inflatable kayaks along the Ovando River, Laguna Verde and Lapataia Bay that offers some of the area’s most breathtaking views. Sea-kayaking in Antarctica is the ultimate paddling adventure because it brings you closer to whales, penguins and seals than what Antarctica Zodiac boating excursions do and allows you to navigate through narrow fjords bordered by icebergs.
