Welcome to Isla Alejandro Selkirk
If Robinson Crusoe falls short of castaway ambience, search out Isla Alejandro Selkirk. Hard to reach and rarely visited by foreigners, the island lies 181km west of Robinson Crusoe. It's a seasonal lobstering base for 25 families from Crusoe who, when not fishing, can be found playing soccer, fixing boats or going on Crusoe-esque hunts for feral goats. More mountainous than Crusoe, Selkirk's highest point in the archipelago is 1650m Cerro Los Inocentes. Islanders are welcoming to respectful visitors, but you should get prior authorization to visit from Conaf and bring provisions. Make sure to settle your return trip in advance, or you may be putting in some time as an island exile.
