As the Chilean coastline plunges south toward the Antarctic, it begins to fray into glacier-carved fjords and rain-forested islands, beginning with the Chiloé Archipelago. All but lost in the mists that mark the edge of human habitation, these forty isolated islets line the icy shipping lanes headed into the Straights of Magellan. They are a world unto themselves, long isolated from Santiago and the mainland, at least until Puerto Montt, 90km (56 miles) away, was founded in the mid-1800s.
