Silversea Luxury Cruises - Tortel

Tortel is a commune located in Southern Patagonia, a spectacular wilderness region of rugged mountains, glaciers, rivers and forests of infinite beauty. The uneven geography of Tortel shapes a unique landscape, characterized by an archipelagic area with numerous islands and channels. View more

Tortel is known as the “footbridge city” for the unique beauty of its wooden walkways that connect the piers and houses of this quaint place through bridges and stairs, built from cypress wood, that run for four and a half miles around the cove and that respect the rich vegetation that grows under them. Even though it is the sixth largest commune in Chile, it has the lowest population of all with roughly 531 people. The history of the town dates back to 1520 when it was inhabited by nomadic Kawesqar, now extinct. Its definitive foundation was in 1955, after numerous attempts to populate the area. In 2001, it was declared by the Chilean government as a Picturesque Zone of National Heritage.

Excursions in TORTEL

Expedition activities with Silversea Expedition team

Village Visit: Today we do a dry bow landing onto a floating jetty with several steps leading up to the boardwalk. Explore this unique village built entirely on stilts at the edge of the fjord. Enjoy local cultural dancing, music, food and drinks while mingling with the locals. Guest can walk along the wooden walkways to admire the scenery with local guides and Expedition staff sharing information about the history and culture of the region.

Hiking with Silversea Expedition team

Enjoy a challenging circular hike to the views above Tortel. This hike has a significant elevation gain over uneven, muddy and rocky terrain, but delivers spectacular elevated views of Tortel and the ship in the fjord. Guests participating in this hike need to be sure footed, fit and wear suitable hiking shoes.

Kayaking with Silversea Expedition team

Join your experienced Kayak Guides on an unforgettable paddle through this desolate area looking for wildlife and admiring the beatiful scenes of the region.


Wildlife we may come across are Andean fox, the South American grey fox, Patagonian fox, southern elephant seal, leopard seal, Chilean dolphin, and the humpback whale to name a few.
