A city of 40,000 people, Ancud was the capital of Chiloe Archipelago until it was superseded by the city of Castro in 1982.
Step out of Ancud with an excursion to Isla Aucar in Quemchi--about 58 minutes away. There's lots more to do: head outdoors with Pinguineras, make a trip to Fuerte San Antonio, look for all kinds of wild species at Chiloe Island Penguin Colony, and see the interesting displays at Museo Regional de Ancud.

To see other places to visit, more things to do, photos, and more tourist information, read our Ancud trip itinerary planning website.

Belfast, UK to Ancud is an approximately 30-hour combination of flight and car. Due to the time zone difference, you'll gain 4 hours traveling from Belfast to Ancud.

Main city on Chile's Chiloe Island, Castro represents one of the country's oldest inhabited settlements, making its fortune as both a tourist center and transportation hub.
Explore Castro's surroundings by going to Muelle de las Almas (in Cucao) and Cascadas de Tocoihue (in Dalcahue). Spend the 26th (Thu) exploring nature at Chiloe National Park. The adventure continues: don't miss a visit to Costanera, head off the coast to Lemuy Island, add some adventure to your tour with a kayaking and canoeing tour, and browse the eclectic array of goods at Feria Artesanal Dalcahue.

For reviews, photos, other places to visit, and tourist information, read our Castro vacation planner.

Drive from Ancud to Castro in 1.5 hours. Alternatively, you can take a bus. In December in Castro, expect temperatures between °C during the day and °C at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 3rd (Fri) to allow time to travel back home.
