Chiloe is an island mostly inhabited by Mapuche indians descendants, who long lived aside of modern society, following a fierce resistance to spanish conquistadors. The result is a strong island identity, highlighting sea and handicrafts, and a rich spiritual culture half way between Catholicism and wood elves.

A part of the carretera austral having been destroyed by a landslide, and seemingly not going to be repaired soon, we drive to the west coast to reach our next stop : Chaiten.

The Carretera austral or road 7, is a motorable track of about 1200km which construction started in the 70s under Pinochet's rule. It gives access to Chile's south third, a wild and remote area gathering mountains, fjords, islands, glaciers and lush vegetation. The small harbors along the road used to be the only access points.

We slowly start to cross the continent on the other direction : from south to north. The goal is to head north on the Chilean side, but due to the total lack of road on the pacific coast, cut out into thousands of islands and isolated fjords, we will have to go back and forth Chile and Argentina few times.

One more border crossing (and not the last one) and we are back in Argentina to visit Parque National de los Glaciares.
