Puerto Chacabuco is a Chilean town in Aisén commune. Administratively it belongs to Aysén Province in Aysén del General Carlos Ibáñez del Campo Region and is located at the head of Aisén Fjord. It is the main port of the region, a port of call for ships sailing to the Laguna San Rafael National Park and the terminus of a Navimag ferry service from Puerto Montt. Before the great burning of the Patagonian forests and the eruption of Mount Hudson volcano in 1991 Puerto Aisén was the main port in the Aisén Fjord, but the ashes and earth erosion decreased the navegability of Aisén River and the port had to be moved further to the coast where Puerto Chacabuco now stands.
What to do in Chacabuco?
The XI Aysén del General Carlos Ibáñez del Campo Region (Spanish: Región de Aysén pronounced [ajˈsen] or XI Región Aysén del General Carlos Ibáñez del Campo), often shortened to Aysén Region or Aisén,is one of Chile‘s 15 first order administrative divisions. Although the third largest in area, the region is Chile’s most sparsely populated region with a population of 102,317 as of 2017 The capital of the region is Coihaique, the region’s former namesake.
The Aysén Region is the least populous of Chile’s fifteen regions. The landscape is marked by several glaciations that formed many lakes, channels and fjords. The region still contains icefields including the Northern Patagonian Ice Field and the Southern Patagonian Ice Field, the world’s third largest after those in Antarctica and Greenland. Laguna San Rafael National Park, reachable only by boat or plane, is one of the region’s most popular tourist destinations. Until the construction of Route 7 (the Carretera Austral, or Southern Highway) in the 1980s, the only overland routes from north to south through the region were extremely primitive tracks.
