This is an ancient glacier bed surrounded by mountains, with an exuberant and unique vegetation, located 60 miles north of the Glaciar San Rafael, in insular Aysén. Cruceros Skorpios owns a total of over 1,000 hectares of forest and mountains here, in addition to the Skorpios hot spring installations with pure and warm thermal waters; the site also offers treks through this southernmost rainforest, motor-boat trips to the inner waters of the fjord, fishing and Patagonian cuisine with its outdoor barbecues over traditional fires.

This site was declared a Natural Sanctuary by the Chilean National Monuments Council. Quitralco which means “Waters of Fire”,was a resting place for the canoeing Indian tribes that hunted and gathered in the area.

Skorpios has converted various open—air and covered pools which give passengers the chance to enjoy the thermal spring baths at different temperatures; these waters are especially good for the skin and for relaxation.

Quitralco is one of the Skorpios passenger’s favourite places on the Ruta Chonos. It has attractive paths, a beautiful park and garden with native trees and shrubs, and a docking bay for Skorpios ships. It has a spring that flows down the mountain which is used as source of potable water for Skorpios II.
