A stay at Tierra Chiloe on the Island of Chiloe will add a unique dimension to a Chile itinerary.
Chiloé Island, is the largest island of the Chiloé Archipelago in the Los Lagos Region of southern Chile. It is separated from the mainland by the Chacao Strait. The whole island, dotted with picturesque fishing villages, feels like a trip back in time. The towns are filled with colorful houses and old wooden Jesuit churches and are surrounded by rolling hills.
Tierra itself is set just outside the Chiloe’s main city of Castro with views of blue waters of Northern Patagonia. The hotel is surrounded by gentle green hills dotted with brightly colored wildflowers and native trees. In Tierra style, the lodge´s distinctive architecture is in-step with its breathtaking surroundings. Each of the lodge’s 12 rooms has a sea view and common areas include a reading room, cozy living room with fireplace, dining room, terrace, and spa.
Daily excursions give guests to explore the island and the surrounding archipelago. Activities include cultural trips, boating, horseback riding, biking, nature walks and more rigorous trekking. Tierra Chiloé even has its own boat, the “Williche” for use during maritime outings on the archipelago’s ocean, channels, and fjords.
We particularly like the cultural dimension of a stay Tierra Chiloé. The beauty of this destination is as much in the landscape as it is in the island residents with their deep-rooted culture and timeless traditions. Tierra Chiloe and the island of Chiloe are truly a special experience.
