END OF THE YEAR AT THE CHILOÉ ARCHIPELAGO
The year has flown by, the routine is slowly getting reorganized and more than ever we need to celebrate life. An incredible destination in Chile for a family New Year’s Eve is Chiloé. An archipelago made up of more than 30 islands with paradisiacal scenery, famous for the houses built on stilts. If nature, luxury and tranquility are among your New Year’s Eve plans, this is a great tip.
The city of Castro, where the region’s airport is located, serves as the gateway for those visiting Chiloé. The Tierra Chiloé hotel is one of the most charming and exclusive in the archipelago. Built of wood, with a design that integrates with the exuberant nature of the archipelago, the hotel translates the essence of the local culture.
It has 24 rustic and comfortable rooms, a delightful spa, a beautiful swimming pool, and serves drinks and Chilean gastronomic recipes made with seasonal products.
As for the tours, don’t worry about a thing. Tierra Chloé has more than 20 options of tours – full day or half day – for all ages and all levels of difficulty, always accompanied by specialized guides.
You can do the tours on foot, horseback, or bicycle to Quento Beach or to the town of San José. On the Williche boat, whose name refers to the ancient people who inhabited Chiloé, the trip through the fjords and to the island of Chelin is a must. On the way you are likely to encounter dolphins and penguins.
The good news is that Chile has recently opened its borders for those who are already fully vaccinated. It is also necessary to perform a PCR test upon arrival and wait for a negative result. As of December, those who have already had a booster dose will not need to go through this procedure when arriving in the country.
With this tip I wish you a wonderful week.
