Those spending the entire day on the island may wish to have lunch at Restaurante Huaiquil, which reopened a few years ago and offers innovative cuisine.

The excursion continues with a boat ride to the Quetrihué Peninsula, home to the trip's other top attraction: Los Arrayanes National Park, where a boardwalk trail takes you past magnificent examples of this species, which forms a dense forest with unique characteristics: thick trunks of a striking cinnamon color blotched with white, reaching heights of 15 meters (50 feet) or more, that give the place a magical feel.

After you’ve feasted your eyes, you can delight your palate at various teahouses and restaurants nestled into the natural beauty of the countryside.
