CHAULLÍN ISLAND

ABOUT

The day begins with a visit to the Lahuén Ñadi Natural Monument that consists of 200 hectares of pristine alerce (Patagonian cypress) forest just 15 kilometers from the city of Puerto Montt.

We begin the tour with a trail apt for people with disabilities and enter the forest to see a 1,600 years old tree. We continue on to Calbuco, where we sail for 15 minutes to Chaullín Island for lunch before exploring the island, which is a living display of the zone’s history, its customs, and a century-old arrayan (Chilean myrtle) forest.
