It’s raining in all the close places with the possibility of decent skiing and we needed an serious alternative. The decision was easy to take and we headed for the beautiful Isla Grande de Chiloé. 9’180 km², 16 UNESCO World Heritage churches, tasty sea food and probably the most annually accumulated precipitation of whole Chile. Here at least it’s raining for real!!! The Swiss owned hostel with its rich breakfast is perfect to take this break from skiing, do some reading, relaxing and explore the old and mostly locked churches around the island…..
Yesterday evening we already noted the rapid increase in pressure (an alpinist skill) and our prayers for good weather were heard and we did an excursion by foot to a remote beach close to Chepu on the west coast.
