A magical archipelago where myths and legends abound View on Google maps
An enchanting archipelago of 30 islands just off the coast of Chile’s Lake District, Chiloé feels so otherwordly that it could just as well be thousands of miles away from the mainland. Explore the island on foot thanks to an impressive network of hiking trails winding through wild national parkland, kayak along tributaries past the island’s colorful stilt houses and colonies of seabirds, and let fishermen recount folklore tales as you feast on the fruits of their morning’s catch.
"Chiloé was one of my very first experiences of Chile, and it was here that I realised just how special the country is. I first went as a very young girl on camping and hiking holidays with my family. Later on, I returned again - this time with ten girlfriends. Seeing the island's churches, traditional palafito houses and national parks, I was reminded of Chiloe's uniqueness. "
