Quellon Travel Guide

The Pan-American Highway, which begins in Alaska and stretches for most of the length of North and South America, ends without fanfare here in Quellón, Chiloé's southernmost city. Quellón was the famed "end of Christendom" described by Charles Darwin during his 19th-century visit. Just a few years earlier it had been the southernmost outpost of Spain's empire in the New World. For most visitors today, Quellón is also the end of the line. But for hikers and nature lovers, there's plenty to explore along the coast and Parque Tantauco nearby. It’s also the starting point for ferries that head to the Southern Coast.
