On the north shore of Lago General Carrera, sleepy Puerto Ingeniero Ibáñez (also known as Puerto Ibáñez) serves as a transit station for ferry-goers traveling to the south shore of the lake and Chile Chico. Climbers come for the new sport-climbing routes. Clobbered in Volcán Hudson's 1991 eruption, it has since recovered.
If local handicrafts interest you, ask around for pottery artist Señora Marta Águila or weaver and herbal-remedy specialist Señora Juana Vega. It's that informal. Locals can also point you to cave paintings or the stunning Río Ibáñez falls, 8km away.
