Chiloé Island: a unique part of the Lake District in Chile.
If you’re planning a trip to the Chilean Lake District to discover its many lakes, waterfalls and volcanoes, it’s also well worth spending a few days exploring the unique and magical Islands of Chiloé. Only a short ferry ride from the mainland, yet seemingly a world away, this archipelago sits at the southern end of the Lake District, south of Puerto Montt. Here you can explore its verdant green hills, pristine national parks, small towns with craft markets and UNESCO world heritage churches. Chiloé is great for trekking, horse-riding, bike rides and kayaking amongst other activities.
An adventure at Tierra Chiloé: a unique lodge in Chile

Every piece of furniture and decor has a story, as Chilean designers have collaborated with local craftspeople to curate a space which is relaxed and welcoming. Our team of friendly staff and guides are on hand to help you discover the genuine warmth of the islanders, through our excursions that provide insights into the local traditions and myths.

“The hotel itself is simply stunning – starkly stylish against the landscape (I love the way it looks different from every angle) and so welcoming and comfortable on the inside. I could have sat and looked at the view and changing light forever. We slept with our blinds open every night, waking to a glorious morning sky.” – Sarah, UK
