Ancud, Castro and Dalcahue (Chiloe) – from Puerto Varas
A visit to Chiloe’s main cultural highlights
Depart from Puerto Varas towards Pargua, to board a ferry that crosses over to Chiloe. After a 30-minute crossing, visitors get to Villa de Chacao. From here head to Dalcacue, situated 20 minutes away from the island’s capital – Castro. In this magical village a famed crafts fair can be visited (Sundays only) which offers an assortment of woven fabrics and regional basketry items. There will be enough time to walk around and visit the cove, the main square and church, a designated Unesco Heritage Site. Following is a visit to the Gamboa district and typical crafts fair. On the return trip, a stop at the city of Ancud is planned, to visit the Plaza de Armas square, the Regional Museum, the Municipal Market, Huaihuen Hill and San Antonio Fort. The return trip includes a second crossing of the Chacao Canal towards the mainland.
