Chile & Easter Island - Chiloe (Chapter)
This is the Chiloé chapter from Lonely Planet’s Chile & Easter Island guidebook.
When the early morning fog shrouds misty-eyed and misunderstood Chiloé, it’s immediately apparent something different this way comes. Isla Grande de Chiloé is the continent’s second-largest island and is home to a fiercely independent, seafaring people who developed culturally and historically in defiance of Santiago.
- Genuflect in awe upon the interiors of Chiloé’s astounding Unesco-listed wooden churches in Achao, Castro (p ) and Aldachildo (p )
- Wake up with the sun on a kayak at dawn on a river trip in misty Chepu
- Spy Magellanic and Humboldt penguins or endangered blue whales at the wild and rugged Monumento Natural Islotes de Puñihuil
- restaurants & accommodation
Coverage includes: Ancud, Monumento Natural Islotes De, Puñihuil, Chepu, Quemchi, Isla Mechuque, Dalcahue, Isla Quinchao, Castro and Parque Nacional Chiloé.
