Chilean Lake District (south): Cycle to Frutillar

Visit Us

Cycle to Frutillar

The curiously Bavarian town of Frutillar may seem at first glance to be in the wrong continent, but its red and white churches and pine-decked cabins look completely at home within the notably alpine surroundings of the Chilean Lake District.

Our favourite way to drink in the fresh air and mountain scenery on your way to this neat and pretty German town is on the 30km bike ride from Puerto Varas. Taking a quiet old road along the glittering lakeshore, this route passes evergreen forests, volcanic beaches and meadows overlooked by snowy peaks. However there’s no need to repeat the journey on the way back: we’ll make sure a driver is waiting to pick you up in Frutillar.
