Penguins Park!

Very nice national park from where you can take a boat and watch penguins if you are lucky and it is season for them! There are some restaurants on the beach too.

The Punihill Penguin colony and the Chilean National Park were near the end of 10 days of riding through Patagonia staying at local inns and dining at local restaurants. The dinner at El Gato in Peurto Varas was some of the best fish I've ever had. Lots of hills but the 10 mile grade over the Andes was a steady... More

We took both hikes--through the forest and through the dunes--plus stops at the museum and the visitor center. All of this took about 4 hours. It is a beautiful place. We had great weather. With clear views and sunshine. It looked like they were set up for these hikes to be quite wet and boggy.

I was a bit taken aback when I read the other reviews of this park as I don't think it does it justice. As others mentioned, the park has a number of hiking trails that are well marked, with boardwalks and plaques with information on fauna. The trails are relatively easy-going - 45 min to 1 hour loops, at most... More

We visited Chiloe National Park for one day and it was simply not enough. The brief interlude gave us a taste of what lies ahead... The small walks at the entrance to the park are scenic but geared towards families, children and the elderly. These are easy and well maintained. I regret that I did not have the opportunity to...

The park is kept in good condition, and the workers we talked to are helpful and friendly. The trails are more nature trails, than hiking trails. They let you see a variety of the plant and bird life within a fairly short distance. We did not take the beach trail in the park, but accidentally wound up on a nearby... More

As far as national parks in Chile go, the easily accessible portion of this one (the south entrance) is nothing to write home about. It has some very short, tame, walking trails and the sights aren't really that compelling. Chiloe is a place to relax, eat seafood, and enjoy the ambience. If you're bored, this park might be worth a... More

Everything was wonderful the day we visited. The park was well maintained. The staff courteous and friendly even though we don't speak Spanish. Wonderful example of the local floral and fauna. Great hiking experience in Chiloe!
