This dwelling must respond to the respectful and conscious development of hiking and mountaineering activities, being everyone's responsibility to contribute to making tourism an engine of environmental and social transformation, with low environmental impact”.

 Douglas Point Summit

Located in the wild and lonely lands to the SE of the Comao Fjord and on the north bank of the Vodudahue River, the summit of Douglas Point (masl) rises majestically and at dawn, above the forests and rivers of this extraordinary sector of Patagonia entrance north of the Pumalin park circuit. Its great massif of pure white granite and its dome shape make this hill known as Gorilla, it is a formidable attraction that draws the attention of the Navigator and obsesses the Mountaineer and Climbers Due to its large number of practically vertical walls, the hard approach by the humid jungle make, above all, the capricious Patagonian climate, this peak a great challenge for the ropes that venture to conquer its summit.

Eco-tourism team

The responsible and sustainable tourism has always been one of the objectives of the Alerce 3000 Foundation and the VODUDAHUE project. To fulfill this dream, a recent agreement was signed between the Alerce 3000 Foundation and Vertical, the country’s leading firm in the development and implementation of outdoor education programs. The idea behind the agreement is to develop, together with local operators, activities aimed at conserving, protecting and professionally managing the environment.
