In the morning we pick up at your hotel in Puerto Varas for our drive to the island of Chiloe, which includes a nice 30 minute ferry crossing during which we can observe sea lions and maybe dolphins. Once on the island we continue south to the fishing village of Dalcahue. We take our time to explore the beauties and culture of this beautiful small fishing village. Rustic homes, traditional fishing boats and the friendly people make Dalcahue a charming village. On Sundays we can visit an interesting local market in Dalcahue, where local typical crafts are sold. You learn a lot about how traditional life in Chiloe is and was during the last years. We continue our journey to Castro, the capital of Chiloe, to observe the traditional palafitos (houses built on stilts along the shore) and visit the majestic wooden church (an UNESCO World Heritage Site). We stroll through town and stop at the crafts market featuring wood and woolen products from the region. In the late afternoon we return to Puerto Varas driving along the eastern coastal road passing by several small fishing villages.
