Chiloé National Park

Los Lagos Region, Chile

Encompassing over 427 square kilometers (165 square miles) of indigenous forest, this park is situated on the west coast of Chiloé. The terrain is rich with wildlife including, at the coast, sea lions, penguins and seabirds. The village of Cucao in the southern part of the park is the location of the start of the Chanquin-Cole Cole Trail, which runs alongside the white beaches of the Pacific shoreline. Meanwhile, in the northern part of the park, the Castro-Abtao Trek weaves through dense forest before eventually reaching the Pacific Ocean.
