Beautiful hilly property located in Aysen, near a village owning 500 meter of river shore. Good fishing, on a great Patagonian river. It has an extraordinary vision, very close to Carretera Austral, a paved road crossing from North to South this region. So with access the whole year.
Besides the sea is so close in Puerto Chacabuco, or also in nearby Puerto Cisnes. This last place is located 110 kilometers away and it is a small fishing village located on the channel called Canal Puyuhuapi. From this place you can sail by the protected channels of this great archipelago containing hundreds of islands, which it is ideal for sailing. There is a unique and exquisite cuisine done out of fish and seafood from these sea waters. There are hundreds of rocky islands, but all of them covered by dense rainforest, making it difficult to cross.
Rafting by rivers, canoeing by river and kayak on the sea are another option for water lovers.
So, the whole area is a call for adventurous spirits.
This is the Patagonia. Weather can be unpredictable. It rains 1.800 millimeters during the year or 720 inches in Mañihuales where the farm is located. However, if you draw a straight line from East to West, from the Argentinian border to the middle of the archipelago in a small fishing village on an island called Puerto Aguirre, rain may be 300 millimeter on the border line with Argentina and 4.000 millimeters on Puerto Aguirre. The distance from the border is 53 kilometers to Mañihuales and 110 kilometers from Mañihuales to the village of Puerto Aguirre. So, on a very short distance you may have dry, cold, windy climate of the flat Patagonia right on the border with Argentina with little rain and lots of snow. While on the middle of the channels and fiords you can have more than 4 meters of rain. In one spot called Chile Chico, by lake General Carrera, there is an incredible micro climate, where you can harvest fruits from the Mediterranean climate of Central Chile, as tomatoes, peaches, cherries, strawberries, etc, having days with over 30 degrees Celsius. And very close to it, you have the permanent freezing Northern Ice Field with many glaciers.
So, Patagonia is wild. You have must have that on mind. If you enjoy the energy of changing seasons on a short area, having extreme weather conditions, this property is for you.
Patagonia is rich in many resources, being ecotourism one of its main features. Fresh water is also a huge resource. There are some specific spots where it can rain even up to 8.000 millimeters per year. The Northern Ice Field is one of the largest reservoirs of fresh water available for mankind out of the Polar caps.
The sea has a great potential, and there are many salmon farms cultivating salmons and trouts on the sea. There are also mussel farms.
For many, Patagonia should be kept pristine as an asset for future generations. It depends mostly on the people choosing to live there.
