4.5
#1 of 7 in Parks in Isla Chiloe
Adventure across an area of protected coastal and mountainous landscapes at Chiloe National Park. This 431 sq km (166 sq mi) park was established in 1982 to protect areas covered by Valdivian temperate rainforest. Explore thickly forested sections featuring perennials, shrubs, and climbers, or take a hike in the foothills of the Chilean Coastal Range, with plenty of challenging and easier walks to choose from. If you want to spot wildlife, the coastal areas are your best bet--there, you can observe a local population of blue whales and river otters.

  • This is the "ranger station" for the park. There are great trails here though the forest and down to the beach. Lots of interesting information. This is the place to start if you want to explore the park. All but series hikers will find all they need here, and serious hikers can use this as a starting point or source of information.
  • Very beautiful place. if you are lucky you can spot a "Chucao", a very curious bird. "copihues" a type of wild flower. very easy trekking and walk trails.
  • Camping with a summer tent is not the best choice in the National Park of Chiloe. Not surprisingly, the literature warns that visitors will be at the mercy of the Pacific storms, so expect a lot of rain.
  • Not wow
  • good
