trip report by site editor Rick McCharles

Most hikers bypass the island of Chiloe en route to bigger adventure destinations in Patagonia.

Click PLAY or get a glimpse of my hike on YouTube.

That’s the Chiloé National Park. The southern section near the village of Cucao. Entrance fee $3 in 2018.

It includes zones of dunes, Valdivian temperate rain forests, swamps, and peat bogs. The huge beach was easily my favourite part.

No need to make a trip only to hike. But if you get close, it’s definitely worth a day.

On the same trip hike nearby Tantauco Park.
