Chile: Chilean Lake District (south)

Visit Us


Chile’s lake district is a picturesque region of ancient forests straddling rugged hills lorded over by snow-capped volcanoes, hot springs and crystalline streams, interspersed by flowery meadows and cattle pasture.

The southern part of the region includes the Bavarian-style resort Puerto Varas on the shores of the vast lake Llanquihue, overlooked by the perfect cone of the Osorno volcano. Not far from here are the Petrohue Falls, a popular break in the journey for visitors on the Lakes Crossing route to Argentina. Puerto Montt is a large town with a busy fishing port from where it’s a short ferry ride to the deeply traditional island of Chiloe.

What our experts say

Think lake district and your mind may wander to the UK version - in Chile, there are certain facets in common: For Windermere read Pucon, with its well developed tourist infrastructure and lake and mountain bound location. Roads can be choked in the summer in both regions, when the fertile fields and hill-slopes are bedecked with flowers and blooming shrubs. But in Chile you have the added delights of views over the chain of permanently snow-capped volcanic cones, with their occasional hissing and seething; ancient moss-stifled forests; quaint Germanic towns and youthful rivers bearing hot springs. Spring and autumn can be a riot of colour, and more peaceful.
