Some documents state that in the late XIX century, a small town devoted to cattle farming was settled. In spite of the effort made by the central government to colonize this isolated part of the country, the attempt failed due to an administration failure.
The official record of the first colonist dates back from 1936. It was don Juan Bohle Werner, who arrived at Los Leones Islands along with his wife Estela Guerrero and their five children. They became established in the southern area and began to work the land.
It was not until 1955 that a new group of colonists arrived to build houses. The Land and Colonization office was set up. The first school, the Civil Registry and the Chilean Post Office –which still remain in the district- were inaugurated ever since.
The present settlers pay homage to the first colonists who started what today is Port Raúl Marín Balmaceda.
Among the various activities developed on Patagonian soil, the practice of golf has been gaining more and more strength in the last few years. Patagonia presents a great diversity, made up by magnificent sceneries for the development of this sport. Enjoying physical exercise and the delight of nature are combined in all its richness and variety.
Make up your mind and climb, ascend or rappel down the most impressive mountains in Patagonia and become a great climber.
Considered as a high risk sport, it requires physical strength of arms and legs at the same time, combined with the technical skill of the climber.
We recommend that beginners do not start by climbing on natural walls, but in artificial ones and under the assistance of a professional guide.
