Chiloé Island

Discover iconic Chiloé Island

Chiloé is one of the many islands that dot this picturesque landscape of the Lakes District. As the second largest island in South America, it is home to the Chiloé National Park, which Charles Darwin wrote extensively about, detailing the region’s exceptional wildlife, in his book “The Voyage of the Beagle”.

Here, local Chilotes showcase their unique customs and palafitos (wooden structures built over the water on stilts) greet travellers upon arrival. Be sure to visit Castro, the third oldest town of Chile and the capital of Chiloé, to tuck into its speciality dish of curanto, a scrumptious combination of meats, seafood and vegetables.
