The río Baker is the largest river in Chile and without a doubt one of the greatest too. Located deep in southern Patagonia kayakers have to drive for two days on gravel roads through forests, lakes, glaciers, and amazing mountain passes. The turquoise blue color of the water and the beauty of the valley captivates you and makes you fall in love with this place. The power of the water and the wilderness around make you feel so small and so connected with the environment... it's a magical place.
There are two proposed and approved dams on the Baker and another three on the Pascua. Many people is fighting against this mega project that would flood the whole valley destroying many wildlife and some of the best white water kayaking on earth.
