THE END OF THE WORLD
Day 12 - Seno Aysen - Puerto Chacabuco (Chile)

LOS CURSOS DE INGLES GRATIS PREFERIDOS POR LOS HISPANOHABLANTES

 

Some visitors comment that the best part of visiting Puerto Chacabuco is the delightful and spectacular sail up the Seno Aysen narrow fjord to the port itself. Discover it by yourself.

HISTORY
Puerto Chacabuco remained uninhabited until the early 1930’s, at which time the Chilean government sponsored settlement in this area. Chacabuco is a very basic port of call with hardly any tourism infrastructure. Some visitors comment that the best part of visiting Chacabuco is the delightful sail up the narrow fjords to the port itself. While this is truly spectacular, it should be interesting that visitors are open-minded and explore a little to appreciate this area for what it is, unspoiled, underdeveloped and extremely beautiful. Just keep this in mind: Parts of the world so remote are few and far between and should be cherished by all.
