Adventures in the Chilean Lake District

Get adventurous in Chile’s Lake District

Traveling along the winding roads of Chile’s Lake District passing snow-capped volcanoes, lush green valleys and shimmering lakes, this is one of South America’s most picturesque areas. Located two-thirds of the way down the country and consisting of 3 main national parks, the Lake District in Chile is the perfect destination to enjoy the great outdoors. After a long day hiking through the national parks or kayaking across its glacial lakes, you can relax and discover the outstanding local cuisine, especially seafood as well as the region’s rich cultural past as the historic homeland of Chile’s indigenous Mapuche people. Make sure to spend some time in Puerto Varas where two towering snow covered volcanoes, the Osorno and Calbuco, stand above the charming town and its scenic Lago Llanquihue. Located just over 14 miles from the hub of Puerto Montt and retaining its small town atmosphere, Puerto Varas is a great base for exploring the outdoor adventures in the region and the Lake District’s Bavarian heritage.
