The South Chile region
Chile is a diverse country. It could be said that it concentrates all the landscapes in the universe in one long strip of land. The most arid desert of the world in the North, and the thousands-of-years-old ice in its southernmost area. A shore that strikes from the West and an impregnable mountain range from the East. A highly developed capital city, Santiago, and islands still breathing the ancestral mystery of its statues watching over the ocean, Easter Island.
In this mosaic of shapes and colors, the majestic “Austral” South stands out. In the “Los Rios and “Los Lagos” regions, this beautiful landscape is at its most spectacular, with its Araucarias that still survive from the Jurassic Period. It is in the Region of “Los Rios” where the province of Valdivia is located. The area is gifted with a very diverse landscape with its lakes formed during the last ice age and rain forests with species as old as man himself. All this saturated with the scent of coast, countryside and island, and typical flavors like “Chupe de mariscos”, “Cazuelas” and “Curantos”.
This vast area possesses an extensive tourist industry, leading tourists to over 10 sources of hot springs concentrated mainly in Panguipulli. Panguipulli also boasts the volcano Mocho Choshuenco, with its height of over 2 thousand meters, and seven lakes that make this place one of the most important spots for ecological and adventure tourism in Chile.
Puerto Montt, The capital of “Los Lagos” Region, is one of the most densely populated cities in the South of Chile. Located 209 km to the North, it is the site of one of three UACh branches. Puerto Montt is also the starting point of Chile's marine insular territory where untouched nature consisting of channels and archipelagos can be enjoyed.
Futaleufú River is known worldwide by adventure tourism lovers as it is one of the greatest challenges for those who practice rafting.
Chiloé is one of the two biggest islands in South America. Land of legends and traditions, and of a community that still keeps the country way of life. Chiloé is known for its architectural tradition with more than one hundred small wooden chapels- traces of Jesuit and Franciscan work, 16 of them declared Patrimony of Humanity by UNESCO-, its houses coated in roofing tiles made of larch wood (a native tree from the area) and its stilt houses.
Chilean Patagonia includes 132 thousand square km of islands, channels, inlets, snowdrift and glaciers that hang down from the summits. Ships offer cruises to this land of eternal ice that crashes into the water, such as San Rafael Glacier that is over 30 thousand years old. Atop the erratic and rebellious waters of the Magellan Strait winds can exceede 100 kilometers per hour. Evangelistas Lighthouse is the last remote guide for seamen. In Tierra del Fuego, huge livestock farms were established and gold mining labor was developed. Currently it is the center of oil activity in Chile.
The Antarctic Territory was defined in 1940. It extends down to the South Pole, where five military bases and one civil settlement are home to important scientific activity.
Chiloe Island, Castro
Chiloe is Chile's largest Island located in the north Patagonia.(If you look at the map it is the island just south of Puerto Montt.)
To cross to and from the Island you can take a ferry (the trip from mainland Chile to the Island takes about 30 min.) or take a flight Santiago/ Castro ( 2 hours and half).
The Isla Grande of Chiloé is South America's largest island and among its most striking cultural anomalies. Divided by the gentle peaks of the Coastal Range, Chiloé's eastern and western coasts are two worlds apart. To the west is a wilderness of endless beaches, dune habitat, and temperate rainforests, much of it protected in one of Chile's most forgotten national parks. To the east are the scattered islands of the Chiloé archipelago, sheltered from Pacific storms, intensely cultivated, home to a traditional culture of subsistence farmers, fishermen, and craftsmen.
The Jesuit order made this corner of the earth their special responsibility, erecting schools and over two hundred elegant wooden churches. A set of sixteen is considered a National Historic Landmark in Chile and, since 2000, a World Heritage Site by Unesco.
A rich mythology - populated by strange trolls, sea monsters, and eerie ghost ships - is yet another mark of Chiloé's singular history.
Today, Chiloé balances wild, unbridled nature with one of South America's most remarkable traditional cultures. Renowned for its seafood, its woolen handicrafts, and the warmth of its people, Chiloé is still a largely unknown destination for walking and biking, fishing, paddling and birding.
The town of Castro, characterized by its fleets of yellow fishing boats and distinctive palafito houses built on stilts above the tides, is easily accessible and provides a full range of tourist services. The charming islands of the archipelago, meanwhile, can only be visited by boat or kayak.
