The main idea of this trip is to visit and discover the area of Cole Cole. This place is located north of Chiloe National Park. From Cucao we will ride our horses north, through a long beach, we will arrive to Huentemo, indigenous (Huilliche) town where we can see some local productive activities. We will start riding up the “Piuchen Cordillera” (Mountain Range), among forests and cliffs we will arrive to Cole Cole Beach, that; because of its white sand and its native flora and fauna, has become the ideal spot to get in touch with nature.
Duration: 8 Hours. Difficulty: High
South from Chiloe National Park, among towering cliffs shaken by the Pacific Ocean, and the impenetrable green native forest, this wild rugged place holds memories of an exquisite past. An old gold panning site, which in the 40s had its best days, was even visited by foreigners who came in search of the precious metal. The following years it became one of the most important sheep breeding areas, to end up with the years almost abandoned. However, the importance of the area is its ancestral history when the old indigenous tribes lived in this area during the end of the last glaciations, who left a great evidence of their trace in this area. Nowadays it’s a very important local, and even worldwide, touristic attraction. After a short instruction we will ride our horses south, to Tricolor Beach, in the middle of Quilan Estate. On our way we will visit old local inhabitants and great fossil gatherers. On arrival, a well-deserved break and picnic.
Duration: 8 Hours (+2 from Castro). Difficulty: High

We would like to clarify that:
Our intention is not to sell a classic tour because we would not like to treat you as a tourist and only show you things of beauty. Our aim is to show you a way of life that is disappearing, and that is linked to the life and equestrian culture of Chiloe Island.
We have years of experience but new challenges can always occur. Sometimes nature imposes its conditions and we must accept them. It is important for you to be flexible in your travel arrangements.
Any questions you may have we will be glad to answer.
