I want to travel from Santiago to Chaiten in Chile by land (bus or train) or sea. Can anyone tell me if this is possible to arrange in advance?

I know I can get to Puerto Montt by bus. And sometimes from Puerto Montt to Chaiten by boat.

I know I can go from Santiago to Chillan by train.

But I can't find reliable information on travel to Chillan.

Can anyone help? Thanks.....

1) You can go from Santiago to Chillan by train from Santiago's Central Station. There are several trains per day. Get a first class seat. It is a 4.5 hours train ride.

2) Go to www.efe.cl for schedule and price info.

Around Chaiten it seems you have to take a boat, an alternative is multiday treks in the natinal parks.

While you are down there, be sure to check out Chiloe, just south of P.Montt. Normally you can get boats to Chaiten from there too.
