Balmaceda is a small village in Chile, close to the border of Argentina. The town is situated close to Aysen Region's biggest airport, Balmaceda Airport. Balmaceda has a very small population of about 500 people. It was one of the first and largest Chilean settlements in what is now termed the Aysen Region. Travelers who visit the region enjoy taking a Balmaceda and Serrano glacier cruise to experience the natural glacier fjords formed here. The scenery is breathtaking, with views of native wildlife, waterfalls, and sights you'll experience nowhere else on earth.
