Hidden beneath a peninsula on Lake General Carrera on the border between Argentina and Chile is one of Patagonia’s most breathtaking sights. Las Cuevas de Mármol (The Marble Caves) are a spectacular system of pure marble tunnels perched just above the azure waters of this age-old glacial lake, an incredible natural wonder that is just itching to be explored. Don’t believe us? Jump on a ferry from Chile Chico or check out the following pics to see for yourself.
The journey starts in Lake General Carrera, a place worthy of a visit in itself
But it’s the caves we’re here to see… Is that it?
Nope, just an island
Almost there guys…
Aaaand, here it is
Like something out of a dream
Some parts are green…
Other parts are blue…
Very, very blue
Renting a kayak is the best way to get around
Because there are lots of cool little tunnels to explore
You can get right up close to the marble marvel
Or just appreciate such beauty from a distance
Time to go home now. What an awesome day out!
