Excursions

Each day at Tierra Chiloé is an open invitation to explore, discover and engage. Navigate the waters on boating escapades, uncover UNESCO cultural treasures, cycle or trek through scenic landscapes, bask in the verdant forests and embark on horseback odysseys – crafting your adventure, your way.

The Williche

The archipelago of Chiloé is composed of one large island and several smaller islands and islets. The Pacific Ocean surrounds and carves out this particular geography, creating beaches, pensinsulas, fjords, marshes and bays, leading to a healthy biodiversity for a diverse range of animals, especially migratory birds. Traversing both land and sea with a guide is a fantastic opportunity to understand this ecosystem and vibrant habitat.

Sailing is a part of daily life for the locals of Chiloé. Tierra Chiloé’s wooden yacht, the locally-built and much loved ‘Williche’, allows guests to appreciate the archipelago from the water and travel like a local, making the voyage to and from excursions just as memorable as the destination. Delicious food is prepared and served onboard, including sea urchins and premium Chilean oysters, freshly shucked.
