Parque Tantauco – the wild side of Chiloé

The mystical Island of Chiloé is famous for its wooden churches, “palafito” houses, and picturesque fishermen villages. In the southern part of the Island, the Tantauco Park shows a wilder and rather unknown face of Chiloé.

The privately owned park consists of 115,000 hectares of virgin forests, lakes, grasslands, hilly landscapes and swamps, and takes visitors into a fantasy world. It is home to endangered Chilean species such as the Pudú, Darwin Frog, and Copihue Flower. Well-kept hiking trails lead through the park, and early risers can explore the entire northern part on a full day excursion to and from Castro. Guests with more time to explore this green paradise may sleep in well-equipped, cosy “refugios,” domo tents, or at campsites. The main route crosses the whole park in about five days (some hikers need only four days, some more) and ends at a breath-taking wild coast. Once there, guests may go sea kayaking, fishing, keep exploring, or just relax. Options for returning to “civilization” are via boat to Quellón or via plane to Castro.
