Day 1: Chiloe Island | Wildlife-watching Boat Trip

We leave Puerto Varas and go south to Ancud, the gateway to Chiloé and one of the province's most important cities. Before traveling east to Puihuil, a natural monument consisting of three small islets*, we stop at its museum to learn about the island's unique churches and also make a stop at its famed fishing market. We head to the waters after a substantial meal to give you a close look at some of the local marine species, including the Humboldt and Magellanic Penguins. Following that, we'll go to Castro, where you may unwind in the beautiful gardens of Hotel Palafito, your home for the next two nights.

*Note: This itinerary is modified in winter due to penguin migration, and instead includes a visit to Fuerte Ahui from April to August.

Day 2: Chiloé National Park & Traditional Lunch

  • Hotel
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch
Do an easy trip in Chiloé National Park today, a secluded region of evergreen tep (Tepualia stipularis) forest on the border of Huillinco and Cucao, two lakes that extend between the island's rolling hills. We finish at the indigenous community of Quique, where a feast of Chiloé-style homemade delicacies awaits us. After that, we return to Castro for the remainder of the afternoon, stopping briefly along the road to view the Chonchi patrimonial church, which dates from the 19th century.

Day 3: Chiloé Church Exploration | Quinchao Island | Return Home

  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch
Today's mission is to explore Chiloé's remarkable churches, which are also UNESCO World Heritage sites. This morning, we'll go to Quinchao Island, where we'll take a breathtaking coastline path to see the archipelago's oldest church, Achao. After lunch, we travel to the port town of Dalcahue to view its distinctive church, which dates back to 1858, as well as its tiny market, where you can buy locally manufactured wool souvenirs. After that, we'll return to Puerto Varas, where your island vacation will come to an end.

Kate was great to work with in the planning stage. She was prompt, helpful, and efficient. Our tour guide, Edwin, was knowledgeable and passionate. We were very happy to have traveled with Adventure Life, it made the trip easy and a true pleasure. We could concentrate on enjoying the experience rather than the details of travel.
