Chiloé Island image

From the Lake District it is a short ferry ride to the archipelago of Chiloé, composed of 30 islands with their brightly coloured wooden houses, many churches and rich mythology. Ferries, either from here or from the mainland, form the first link of the southern highway or Carretera Austral.
