Caleta Tortel

Attractions Tours Sightseeing Tours Nature & Adventure Tours
Lying at the mouth of the Baker River and backed by forest-coated hills that tumble down to the water, the sleepy fishing village of Caleta Tortel is a magical place to visit, with picturesque fjords, mountains, and islands all lying nearby.

While its idyllic setting is certainly as scenic as they come, the sight of the dilapidated wooden buildings, bridges, and boardwalks that snake their way along the waterfront or pop up from amongst the verdant forest is equally pleasing to the eye.

There are no roads at all in Caleta Tortel; this lends the town a lovely laidback feel, as most people get around on foot or by boat as they make their way between the magnificent Chilotan stilt houses.

With the glacier-filled Northern and Southern Icefields for you to explore and the Island of the Dead also nearby, the remote Caleta Tortel really is a unique place to spend some, time with a wealth of things for you to see and do.
