Chiloe is a truly unique location. Its vast coastline, wetlands, river systems, forests and fields offer some of the richest bird watching in Southern Chile; even from the 30 minute ferry journey to access the island, you can spot dolphins, penguins and groups of playful sea lions. On arrival on the island you will be met with rolling countryside, dramatic coastal scenery, quiet bays and inlets, and allwith a back drop of the mighty snow peaked Andes. Get off the beaten track for a few days hiking the rugged pacific coast, sea kayak in the peaceful water channels, visit penguin colonies and explore beautiful wooden Jesuit churches on the Eastern Coast.
