The Marble Caves of Patagonia, Chile, are beautiful vibrant blue caverns, partially submerged in the equally stunning turquoise waters of Carrera Lake.

The lake itself is on the border of Argentina and Chile, with the caves located on the Chilean side. The caves are comprised of three main caverns: the Chapel (La Capilla), the Cathedral (El Catedral), and the Cave (La Cueva).

Visitors to the caves can explore them in a small boat or kayak, but only when Carrera Lake’s waters are calm and gentle.

A rare and invaluable natural wonder, the existence of these caves is currently threatened by plans to build five large dams in the area. If you visit these caves, please treat them with the utmost respect and care.

  1. Gosh, just perfect this place and the others! Congratulations for the website. I LOOOOOVE to see high quality photos of beautiful places. Again, congrats and thanks for the photos! I’ll dream with this places and travel through the images. lol

  2. When I look at these gorgeous photos, it brings me a sense of awe but at the same time, it makes me feel sheltered and that I haven’t seen anything in the world myself! Ha, ha. That’s okay, though, because now I feel compelled to be more adventurous and get out and see what the planet has to offer. I hope to do this immediately without causing too much of a carbon footprint. Now, how am I suppose to do that? I’m not sure at the moment, but I will ask around and I know there’s a way to do things without harming the planet too much. :D

  3. very nice! Beautiful!
    There is nothing more natural than the nature in it’s entire beauty, untouched, pure, magnificent.
    Create moments, explore nature, enjoy life!
