San Juan 
It is located on Isla Grande, in the village of San Juan, by the inlet formed by the river bearing the same name. Its patron is Saint John and its festival is held on June 24. It dates from 1887. It was rebuilt after the 1960 earthquake and its structure is located parallel to the seashore. That is why it is easily spotted from a distance.

The tower is made up by two tambours and the portico is supported by four pillars. It has no arches. Fundación Amigos de las Iglesias de Chiloé carried out some restoration works on the tower and the façade.

4x4 - Quad Rides

Within this section, there are several activities that are closely related to adventure and risk, capable of generating bursts of adrenaline at an unusual rhythm.
Exciting excursions on 4 x 4 vehicles or challenging quad rides captivate the senses at the same time you can experience the joy of seeing and enjoying nature in its purest state from a different point of view.


Canopy is a new adventure sport whose main objective is to offer a unique activity and a different ecological experience which consists in not altering the habitat.
The feeling of going through the Valdivian forest or the Andean Patagonian forest from the tops of the trees, swinging or hanging in the middle of nowhere, is both funny and exciting.
