Learn about the native Mapuche culture at Kila Leufu ‘House between three rivers’, before feasting on typical Mapuche fare for lunch, made with organic ingredients fresh from the farm.
Experience two nights staying in a luxury treehouse with picture windows offering incredible views over the nature reserve.
Prepare to immerse yourself in a very hands-on traditional experience, enjoying lunch with the Chilotes, creating their local specialty dish ‘curanto’, a stew full of seafood, various meats and Chiloé potatoes cooked in an earth oven – reserved for special occasions.
