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

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

Light bounces into the caverns and strikes the carved marble walls, creating this enchanting lightshow.


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 by small boat or kayak, but only when Carrera Lake’s waters are calm and gentle.

Carrera Lake is on the border of Argentina and Chile, with the caves located on the Chilean side.

A rare natural wonder, the existence of these caves is currently threatened by plans to build five large dams in the area.
