Description of the tour
On this tour we will travel to the Island of Chiloe, visit the city of Ancud - the former capital of the island with a historic fort. Then we will visit a colony of Magellanic penguins and Humboldt penguins.
Having left the city of Puerto Montt, we head for Chiloe and a small village of Pargua. From there we will cross the Chacao Channel separating the island of Chiloe from the mainland. On arriving in Ancud city, we will visit the ancient fort of San Antonio, the main square and the city market. We will have enough free time to walk in the downtown and along the waterfront. Then we will drive another 17 miles (27 kilometers) to the Pacific coast to a place called Punihuil, where two species of penguins (Magellanic penguins and Humboldt penguins) settle for breeding offspring from November to March. Here we will have lunch and make a small motorboat excursion with special guides, who will introduce us to the fauna of these islands.
