Fill your heart with memories and unforgettable experiences on this spectacular cruise along the Veliche Route - Chiloé Island, exploring the marvelous corners hidden in the south of Chile.

For decades, Puerto Montt and the mystical Chiloé Island have been starting and meeting points for great expeditions towards southern Chile and Patagonia. From the discovery of the San Rafael Lagoon to the taking of possession of the Strait of Magellan, Chiloé has been considered the captain of the Southern Routes. In order to bring tourists closer to the essence of the Chilote people and their traditions, Skorpios Cruises presents an exciting tourist route, the Veliche Route, whose name in Mapudungun means "people of the south," in honor of the ancient navigators who gave origin to the Chilote people.
