Discover Chiloe's Chauques archipelago by boat, before navigating the maze of waterways and landmasses of colourful Mechuque village by kayak and on foot


Chiloé’s surrounding, smaller islands are a treasure trove of wildlife and cultural heritage waiting to be discovered. Mechuque in the Chauques Isles, is one of the loveliest. Begin with a short tour of Tenaún, a quaint port town of few residents which has a striking central church. Boarding the boat in Tenaún, a windswept 45-minute voyage will take you to the Chauques archipelago, a beautiful maze of interconnecting waterways and landmasses. From Mechuque spend the afternoon kayaking the serene canals of Chauques in traditionally dugout canoes or taking a relatively easy hike up to the Mechuque viewpoint. From here it’s easy to capture the perfect panorama of this picturesque island network.
