So weird and wonderful, it could be coastal Norway.
The surrounding geography is rugged, formed by a number of islands, fjords, channels and estuaries.
… the road was constructed only in 2003, and connects Caleta Tortel with the Carretera Austral.
Since I hate motor vehicles, I loved Tortel.
I got there by bus from Cochrane.
Since my driver was a smoker, we had plenty of photo stops.
In Tortel, even the tent platforms are on stilts.
At the mouth of Chile’s largest river, we expected this to be a fishing village. Not so. It’s historically been a lumber town.
There two days, I spent plenty of time walking the boardwalk.
Cyclists all make the detour here.
A lovely place to visit.
