Welcome to Puyuhuapi
Tucked into the Jurassic scenery of overgrown ferns and nalca plants, this quaint seaside village is the gateway to Parque Nacional Queulat and Termas de Puyuhuapi, a prestigious hot-springs resort. In 1935 four German immigrants settled here, inspired by explorer Hans Steffen's adventures. The town sits at the northern end of the Seno Ventisquero, a scenic fjord that's part of the larger Canal Puyuhuapi.
The agricultural colony grew with Chilote textile workers whose skills fed the success of the 1947 German Fábrica de Alfombras, which sells its high-end handmade carpets online.
