Chilean Lake District (north): Self-drive in the Chilean lake district

Visit Us

Self-drive in the Chilean lake district

Set your own pace on this self-drive journey unveiling the full glory of Chile’s wild vistas. The adventure is all yours but our expert planning and carefully chosen hotels will help to ensure a smooth ride, leaving you free to enjoy the peace and tranquillity of an unspoilt region.

We recommend splitting the 700km drive over 7 days to give you plenty of time to savour the dreamlike landscape, stopping off to visit secluded villages, picnic beside crystal streams and bathe in thermal pools.

From the lakeshore resort of Pucón, the winding road continues south, embraced by lustrous evergreen forests, and glides alongside a wonderland of snow-capped volcanoes, glassy lakes and waterfalls tumbling through fairytale gulleys. You’ll spend 2 days in the enchanted forests of Huilo Huilo reserve, full of quirky hidden treasures. The looming presence of Osorno volcano draws ever-closer on the horizon until you reach journey’s end, emerging at the old German colony of Puerto Varas.
