Description

Departure from Puerto Varas towards Chiloé, an island rich in traditions and myths that have survived because of the archipelago’s isolation from the continent, and famous for the locals’ warmth and hospitality.

To reach this magical island you must first navigate the Canal de Chacao for 30 minutes. The crossing departs from Pargua, a town located on the continental limit of Chile. During the navigation get the chance to watch a variety of birds and sea lions, before reaching the town of Chacao where you will visit the square and church.

The trip continues along the coastal Llao Llao road to Dalcahue, home of a traditional handicraft fair with loom knit clothing, and crafts in local woods. Visit the Dalcahue church, a national monument and World Heritage Site (2000) and enjoy some free time to have lunch (if option is selected).

Later travel to Castro, famous for its stilt houses or Palafitos. Visit to the Handicraft Fair of Castro, where the woollen, wooden, and stone articles are a must-see. Make a stop at the San Francisco church, famous for its detailed woodwork and size. Finally visit the church of Nercón.
