Explore the small and isolated village of Puerto Eden
Meet the Kawesqar, the native canoe people of the Chilean fjords
Visit the Kawesgar
During our visit to Puerto Eden, we invite you to explore one of the most remote settlements of Southern Chile. This small town is a true hidden gem, rich in culture, at the end of the world, giving a new meaning to “living off the grid”. Here still live people who originate from the indigenous Mapuche culture, whose history stretches back thousands of years, giving Eden an aura of antiquity, yet firmly set within the modern world. Upon arrival, the locals welcome you and guide you through their unique home sharing an insight into their life. You will make your way through town following the complex network of wooden boardwalks making up the majority of the local infrastructure, hold on to the rails! On the way, you will explore the charm of this iconic place, acquire some local handcrafts, and maybe spot some of the local wildlife of Chile.
