From Castro, we head to Chonchi and once there and, meanwhile we adjust the bikes for the bike fitting, you´ll have time to explore the Church “Nuestra señora Del Rosario”, from the XIX century.
From Chonchi we begin to pedal towards Chiloé National Park. The light traffic and the beauty of the landscape, turn this trip in a perfect option where most of the route runs along the Huillinco and Cucao lakes with small farms.
Five miles before the National Park, we´ll stop in the indigenous community of Quilque for a light-lunch to recover energy and enjoy the local gastronomy with organic products.
Once in the National Park, it’s possible to leave the bicycles, and hike into the forest in “El Tepual” trail. In the afternoon, we’ll return to Castro by car.
