Kayaking at Dawn in the Sunken Forest of Chepu



Imagine gliding silently through the calm waters as the first light of dawn breaks over the horizon, illuminating a mystical forest submerged in water. This enchanting experience is exactly what you can expect when you join Chiloe Natural’s Kayaking at Dawn tour in the sunken forest of Chepu.

Located on the northwest coast of Chiloé Island, Chepu is renowned for its unique and hauntingly beautiful sunken forest. The forest, submerged after a massive earthquake in 1960, now stands as a ghostly reminder of nature’s power. The skeletal remains of trees protrude from the water, creating an otherworldly landscape that is both serene and surreal.

Setting off at dawn, you’ll find yourself surrounded by the stillness of the early morning. The water, often glass-like at this hour, mirrors the vibrant colors of the rising sun and the silhouettes of the submerged trees. This tranquil environment is ideal for wildlife spotting. As you paddle through the forest, keep an eye out for various bird species and other wildlife that inhabit the area.

Chiloe Natural’s Kayaking at Dawn tour is designed for both novice and experienced kayakers. Knowledgeable guides provide all necessary equipment and a brief orientation before setting off. Their expertise ensures a safe and enjoyable journey, allowing you to fully immerse yourself in the breathtaking scenery and the peaceful ambiance of the sunken forest.
