Volcanoes and lush green forests reflected in crystalline lakes View on Google maps
Whether you’re whitewater rafting down the Trancura River or sipping a locally-brewed beer overlooking Lake Llanquihue in the charming colonial town of Puerto Varas, Chile’s Lake District offers high adrenaline pursuits, complete tranquility, and everything in between. Easily reachable from Argentina via a breathtaking Andes crossing over azure mountain lakes, the region’s snow-capped volcanoes, unspoiled forests and idyllic lakeside villages lend the place a distinctly Alpine feel.
"I first visited Puerto Varas and the surrounding area by bike, camping beside beautiful lakes with ridiculously perfect snow-capped volcanoes as our morning view and staying in quaint cabins in local villages. Mountain biking was the objective of the trip and the region did not disappoint! Near Pucón we went snow shoe walking on a volcano in the morning and trekking through a monkey puzzle tree forest in the afternoon."
