Tierra Chiloé: Hiking Ahuenco Park

Level: Difficult
Duration: Full Day

Hiking a Slice of Unique Landscape

To start our journey toward Ahuenco Park, we will travel by land to Chepu, the small town on the shore of the island’s largest river.

On the way, we will cross the Chepu River by boat, passing through the sunken forest and arriving to the pier, to start our trek through native forests and by points looking out on the Pacific Ocean.

During the summer months -if we are lucky, we will have the opportunity to see the island’s two main penguin species: Magallanes and Humboldt, who arrive here to produce and raise their nestlings. We will return on the path and again cross the river on the way back to the hotel.

*Penguin sightings occur between October and April.
