Brief Route Description:
Arrive on your International flight to Santiago. A connecting flight to Puerto Montt departs from the same airport. Spend the night in Puerto Montt.  The next morning at 9 a.m. take a taxi to the small plane airport La Poloma. A taxi can be sent to your hotel since not all taxi drivers know the entrance to this smaller airport. You are allowed 15 kilos of luggage. Over this they may charge excess baggage fees.  Upon arrival at this small airport there is a small office near a hanger, let them know you have arrived. The flight departs at 10 a.m. It is a beautiful 35 minute flight over the ocean bay to an remote airstrip just 500 yards from the coast near the coastal town of Chaiten. It takes 3.5 hours of ground transport to arrive in Futaleufu.  Hotel reserves for the village of Futaleufu can be made from this web page. On the return do not plan on same day connecting flights out of Puerto Montt before 2 pm. We can be reasonably assured that the flight from Chaiten will arrive in Puerto Montt around 1 pm.

Air Tickets Chaiten:
On this route it is important to use our travel agent. Gilda is the only one in the USA that can reserve and sell the tickets on the Puerto Montt - Chaiten route. She knows all the details of this route. Upon arrival at your hotel in Puerto Montt call the airline company (or our office) and let them know your name, and ask them what time you should be at the smaller airport called Aerodroma La Poloma. It is 10 minutes from the City Center of Puerto Montt. http://www.exchile.com/airfaresearch.html

Direct Charter Flights:
Direct flights to Futaleufu are available. These flights fly direct over the incredibly rugged Andes, in view of the active Chaiten volcano. This can be a spectacular experience. If bad weather happens the flight would be diverted to Chaiten. We would quickly put together ground transportation to get you the 3.5 hours from Chaiten to Futaleufu.

Ground Transport:
The transfer from Chaiten to Futaleufu can be done on a public bus or a private transfer. Our Travel agent can help you in making this choice.
