For those who are looking for amazing landscapes, cultural diversity, delicious food, excellent wine, and a great human experience with warm-hearted people, Chile is a must-see destination. Our country has a unique mixture of landscapes and different kinds of weather which delivers an incredible display of natural wonders, such as the Atacama desert, Lake District, Patagonia and Easter Island “Rapa Nui”.

On December 14, 2020, a total solar eclipse will cut across Chile’s Lake District at Northern Patagonia, where anyone within the 56-mile-wide path of totality can witness the moon pass fully between the sun and Earth.

The phenomenon occurs when the new moon comes between the sun and Earth and casts its umbra – the darkest part of its shadow – on Earth. A total solar eclipse is almost as dark as night. While the majority of this year’s total solar eclipse will take place over the Pacific Ocean, it will pass over South America – Chile and Argentina – in the late afternoon, meaning Chile’s Lake District is one of the best – and only – places in the world for viewing. Come and enjoy the unique natural event…Once in a Lifetime!


Widely known for its clear skies, Chile has become a global power in astronomy. With different observatories located throughout the territory, especially in the north of the country, Chile is now a key participant in many scientific advances and discoveries of the last couple of years.
But the mysteries of the cosmos are not exclusive to astronomers and physicists, since different organizations have started to open its doors to the public with the purpose of allowing them to discover more about our universe.

Paranal astronomy observatory chile.In the north of Chile, in the Atacama and Antofagasta region, different observatories have been installed, making the most of the amazing skies of the Atacama Desert.

It is said that in the Chiloé National Park there is a beach of clear sand and deep blue sea bordered by a lush jungle, you can hear travelers talking about this beach that only some have had the pleasure of visiting.

The instructions say that to get to Cole Cole from Ancud, the first thing to do is take a bus to Castro, the city of the palafittes. Once in Castro, you have to take a bus to Cucao by a route that takes approximately 2 hours to be traveled.

The walk from the end of the road in Cucao to the beach is 15.8 km, and this is only one way. For this reason, most of them trek with tent and lunch, spend the night on the beach and return the next day. Although there is also the option to make the round trip in one day.

After registering in the administration of the Chiloé National Park, you must return to the dirt road and continue north until the end. A little further on from the Chanquin bridge, at kilometer 5, the road ends and the walk begins.

The first thing is to cross a small lagoon that separates the road from the beach. The instructions say that you have to walk north along the river and the hills until you see a farmhouse on a hill. This would be the community of Huentemó.

The wind runs strong and there is no demarcated route. The chances of getting lost are and the adrenaline that this causes, accompanies them.

Once you have seen the town, you have to walk towards the hills in search of a bridge. The walk continues crossing and skirting the hill until you reach a booth where you have to register. The demarcated path starts here, two hours after having walked with uncertainty through the widest and wildest beach on the island.

From this point everything is accurate and the landscape changes drastically. From walking on an open beach framed on one side by the sea and on the other by the green mountains, we pass a narrow black dirt road surrounded by evergreen trees, bushes and climbing plants.

We are in the middle of the Valdivian jungle walking among coihues, alerces, tepas, quilas, arrayanes and cypresses of the Guaitecas.

It is a little traveled route, and this is good news because this increases the chances of seeing a Darwin fox (lycalopex fulvipes), endemic species in danger of extinction that only inhabits two places in the world: the Nahuelbuta mountain range and in the Chiloé archipelago.

After approximately 50 minutes, you will reach a cliff from where you can see the famous Cole Cole beach. It is a unique trekking of spectacular landscapes with a final reward that is really worth it.

Located in the southern zone of Chile, the Chiloé Archipelago is a group of more than 30 islands full of natural beauties, a rich mythology and unique cultural traditions in the world. The best known is the Big Island, being the gateway from the Chacao Channel and home to the largest cities in the area: Ancud, Castro and Quellón.

However, beyond the Big Island there are treasures scattered by the sea that you must explore. Take a nautical chart and make a different trip with the 10 islands of the Chiloé Archipelago that you should know:

1.- Lemuy: From Castro you can take a ferry to access the island of Lemuy, whose main attraction is the land language that has to one side and serves as a natural viewpoint to other islands, giving the feeling as if you floated in the sea. It has activities such as boat rides and walks, as well as a long suspension bridge in the middle of its Valdivian jungle.

2.- Caucahué: Carahué, which means “place of large gulls”, is a small clod of land that surprises with lush forests that converge on beaches with intense blue waters, generating a pleasant sensation of relaxation. Here you can enjoy sightings of wild birds and direct contact with an almost virgin nature.

3.- Butachauque: Known for its beautiful sunsets, the flat coast of Butachauque allows you to have a panoramic view of the water and fields of the place. Being one of the smaller islands, it has a family atmosphere that receives tourists with food and typical legends. It is even said that through the water channels that surround it, some of the classic myths of Chiloé were born, such as the ghost ship Caleuche and the sorcerers that turn into birds like the “tue tue”.

4.- Mechuque: One of the towns of this island of the Chiloé Archipelago has a picturesque red bridge of oriental style that allows the inhabitants to cross the channel of sea water that divides it. Most of the houses of Mechuque are built on the traditional palafitos of the archipelago, which gives an added value to the rustic line of the landscape.

5.- Quenac: Its name originates in the culture of the Chonos and means “unprotected place of the winds”. Full of mysticism, in Quenac stories of magical events are spread, like that of the Dallín Lagoon, which they claim is formed by the cries of a young virgin of the place.

6.- Tranqui: Paradise of outdoor adventure, the island of Tranqui has a wide range of camping and extreme sports such as climbing and canyoning around forests of native trees and large beaches of gray sand.

7.- Quinchao: At 25 km. north of Castro, on the coast of Dalcahue, a ferry departs that in less than 5 minutes takes tourists and locals to the island of Quinchao. There you can visit a picturesque village dating back to 1660: Curaco de Veléz. Appreciate the unique architecture of its houses made of larch and cypress tiles, and visit the Church of Our Lady of Grace of Quinchao, a World Heritage Site.

8.- Aucar: Called “The Island of the Navigating Souls” by the writer Chilote Francisco Coloane, Aucar connects and disconnects from the mainland depending on the level of the tide. To get there, you have to cross an extensive and beautiful wooden bridge, while the one in charge of welcoming you is a large botanical garden that contains all the flowers and trees native to Chiloé.

9.- San Pedro: Due to its small population, this island allows a total disconnection of the world (ideal for a couple getaway). In the waters bordering San Pedro you can see blue whales and penguins, or navigate peacefully through a romantic lagoon that is inside.

10.-Metalqui: The shore of this small rocky islet has become home to a colony of sea lions that share the beach with different species of birds, becoming the delight of visitors.

In Ancud visit the exhibit of the UNESCO World Heritage churches. Then this tour takes you to the churches in Dalcahue, Castro, Nercon, Vilupulli and Chonchi. These are fine examples of the wooden churches of Chiloe built in the 17th century.

From Puerto Montt or Puerto Varas, cross the Chacao Channel by ferry and drive to Puñihuil on Chiloé. Take a small open boat to visit the colony of Magellanic and Humboldt penguins (and other marine life). Visit a few sights in the city of Ancud before returning.
