The first settlers likely arrived at Puerto Bertrand around 1920, but it wasn’t until the 1940s that the town was officially incorporated. The town is located along the shores of Lake Bertrand, at the beginning of the Baker River, which has the largest volume of water of any river in Chile. The area’s turquoise waters are a paradise for lovers of fly fishing and also provide a great setting for other outdoor activities, including rafting, boat rides, bird watching, day trips in kayak, or longer trips, including a gorgeous excursion along the river to Tortel. It’s also the starting point for beautiful, little-explored trekking routes that wind through Chile’s Northern Icefields.
