Trip Info

Our tour begins with the transfer of passengers to head northeast, towards the town of Dalcahue, a sector where we will visit its typical craft fair and its church declared a World Heritage Site in 2000.

Then, on a trip that lasts no more than 15 minutes, we will cross to Quinchao Island through a ferry, to continue towards Huyar (typical small town of the island) and Curaco de Vélez, which is an old Chilote hamlet, emerged at the beginning of the 17th century, which is marked by the commercial and port development that the province experienced from the mid-19th century until the 1960 earthquake. Today it stands out in the archipelago for its rural towns, its architecture, religiosity, folklore and crafts local.

Continuing with the route, we will arrive at Achao, a town built on a flat sector surrounded by hills and facing a shallow sandy beach. In front are the islands of Llingua and Linlin. In the surrounding hills there are abundant viewpoints, such as the Alto de la Paloma.

It is the main Chilote town that is outside the Big Island and as such is highly visited by inhabitants of the smaller islands, who come to study or carry out commercial activities.

The architecture of Achao stands out for the multiple forms that the larch tiles that are used to cover the houses adopt. Inside this is the Church of Santa María de Loreto de Achao, declared a World Heritage Site. It is the oldest church in Chiloé.

Finally, we will visit Villa Quinchao, where we will find the largest traditional Chilota churches and then we will reach the end of the island to the Chequian sector

Your adventure awaits!
