Jan, Feb, Sep, Oct, Nov, Dec
A 4-day trip starting in Arturo Port, at water’s edge of Lake Lolog, crossing the River of Auquinco Valley. We cross beautiful landscapes of native forests to end in a beauty spot next to Laguna Verde.
Keep reading the following itinerary of the way among Aunquinco Valley. You won’t want to miss this opportunity Patagonia is offering you.
Day 1: Arturo Port – Auquinco (4 – 5 hs)
The first day of this trek consists in skirting Lolog Lake by a dense forest. After 2 hours of hike we will arrive at Playa Bonita. If weather helps we will enjoy a rest time and a swim in this lake. Then, we will continue until we get to Aunquinco spot where we will spend the night in our base camp. You have to know during this walk we can find vary of birds such as the Pitio, woodpeckers and the Huet.
Day 2: Auquinco – Corner of the pines (4 – 6 hs)
Our second day will be easier and very different from the first one, because we will hike among steppe lands characterized by its thick grass. If it’s hot we can refresh our bodies in the cold but calm waters of Auquinco River. In the middle of those valleys we can find traces of deers, wild boars and if we are lucky, we can see one of them around.
Day 3: Corner of the pines– Portezuelo waterfall (5 – 6 hs)
Some minutes after leaving the Corner of the Pines, we can admire the beauty of the Araucarias. They are antique and typical trees of The Lanin National Park and they have been used as food resources by Mapuches.
As we walk the mixed forest, we will start finding the first signs of an ancient volcanic activity. While we are leaving the forest, we will be entering into a black sandy landscape that slowly turns into a high desert. When we go through it, we will find the Portezuelo Waterfall and the volcano Achen Ñiyeu on whose side arises a beautiful slag heap.
If weather conditions and National Parks allow us, we can spend the night at the waterfall foot.
Day 4: Portezuelo Waterfall – Green Lake (2 – 3 hs)
The day begins walking among the slag heap which is lava transformed into rock and channeled through an ancient glacial valley, approximately 450 years ago. This last section of the trail will take us to the Laguna Verde (Green Lake), where we can rest while waiting for the transfer.
In case the weather conditions are not favorable or National Parks do not permit to overnight, we will sleep in Laguna Verde directly.
I know it is the experience you are looking for. It will be a pleasure for me to be your guide during these 4 days. Get in touch with me and let’s do it!

I had a very good experience booking the hike through Explore-Share. Communication with the team was prompt and clear and the booking process was seamless. The trip itself was also just perfect. Uroš was a fantastic guide, highly skilled and talented. The hike felt safe at all times, even on more exposed routes, thanks to him. He was always up to date on the weather forecast and planned the days around it, checked the conditions on the route ahead of me, if needed, discussed and adapted the routes to my level and always made sure I was safe and comfortable. I highly recommend him, as well as Explore-Share.

Explore Share is a really usefull website that has a great overview of reviewed guides for a (in our case) hiking/climbing trip. During the booking I got assigned an assistent for Explore Share that helped solve questions that I might have. Great customer service, and I will come back again.

Guide was very experienced and very patient with us. We learned a lot and he tried to fit in all the knowledge he could in one day, super awesome. A little tough going back and forth to get the trip set up hard to tell if the site is sketchy until you see reviews but all worked out. Ended up with an awesome day with an awesome guide. Overall pretty satisfied and thankful!

It's the 2nd time we have been booking with Explore-Share. The booking was super easy and both Explore-Share and the guide were fast in their responses. We did rafting as a family with 3 kids for the first time in Slovenia. The guide (José) was super nice. He was doing everything he could to make everyone at ease with rafting (he gave clear explanations), have a great team spirit (we were joined by 2 other girls) and have a good time. We had lots of fun and the nature there is so beautiful. Thank you Explore-share and Soca splash for the great afternoon! I would recommend this activity to anyone without a doubt. My kids immediately told me they want to do rafting again soon !"
