Welcome to Parque Nacional Chiloé

Following in the footsteps of Darwin after 150 years, the visitor will find an isolated but wildly beautiful assortment of rolling hills, native forests and pristine coastline in Parque Nacional Chiloé. It is home to the Chilote fox, the rare pudú (miniature deer) and over 100 species of birds, including the Magellanic penguin. The park offers a variety of walking trails, through forests and under twisted tepú trees, along miles of unspoilt coastline or along nature trails that lead up onto the hills for superb views of the surrounds. One of the draws of the hiking trails in Chiloé is the wide selection of short hikes, making it a good activity even for visitors who aren't in the best shape. The park is also home to several Huilliche Indian communities. The information centre at the entrance has good displays on the flora, fauna and the traditions and folklore of the Huilliche people.
