Sea Kayaking and Culture in 
the Chiloe Islands
7 days

Immerse yourself in the fascinating, cultural experience of Chiloe Island as we glide silently through the mysterious byways of this archipelago, where Spain once maintained its last stronghold of colonial power in South America. Our sturdy kayaks emulate the spirit of the fragile dalcas; in which the natives traveled many centuries ago. Today there still vestiges of this original Araucanian way of life, in harmonious combination with the influences of German immigrants in the late 1800s and of modern-day Chile.  On every lovely island we visit, you'll see moss-covered old wooden churches gracing the seaside, as well as palafitos (stilt houses) that are 20 feet and more in the air when the tide is out, but nearly awash when it's in. Wander through the local market of Castro. Enjoy this opportunity of a lifetime to enjoy a fantastic adventure at the other end of the Earth.  1 night in four star hotel in Santiago, 2 nights traditional stilt style hostel, 2 nights family home
