Trip Planner: South America / Chile / Biobio Region / Greater Concepcion / Lota / Chiflon del Diablo Mine
Put your nerves to the test with a visit to the undersea coal mine affectionately known as Chiflon del Diablo Mine. Led by ex-coal miners turned-guides, visitors don safety gear and clamber into a hair-raising elevator cage and journey some 50 m (164 ft) below sea. The mine gets its name from the natural ventilation that flows through the mine, translated as 'the Devil's blast', significant as it's the only naturally ventilated mine in the world. The mine closed for production in the 1990s, but has since served as a popular tourist attraction. Visitors have the opportunity to journey into the mine, and then tour the recreated coal-mining town and houses.

Fantastic trip, as the sign at the mine mouth says, "into the guts of the Earth". Our guide Daniel was a miner in this same mine for 20 years (after his father and grandfather and all uncles and brothers), and his knowledge was unmatched. Totally recommended!
Very interesting and informative. They give you a good understanding into what it meant to be a coal miner in those days, and you get to walk inside the mine itself.
