  • Beautiful ride, must take all day to go and well appreciate this beautiful island. Each village has an attractive Park, mirador, River.

  • To stroll and spend an afternoon touring. Maybe missing offers for for and to ar something and rest looking at the views. Detif peninsula there is a restaurant below, in my opinion does not take advantage of the beauty of the surroundings and is expensive.

  • Can be reached from Chonchi taking the ferry and a few minutes in this wonderful island, first we went to the Church from Ichuac, very nice, though it lacks much to restore; You can climb up the Campanile, follow Puqueledon, Aldachildo where the Church was closed, then continue along a single path where you see the sea on both sides, a dream of a beautiful day, until reaching the Church of Detif, also heritage, here impacts me popular culture put plastic flowers, when the nature that surrounds it is as generous with all kinds of flowers. Excellent ride.
