Puerto Varas, Chiloé & surrounds holidays

Snow-capped volcanoes, rivers and deep blue lakes dominate the scenery of the Chilean Lake District. The southern region can be best explored from Puerto Varas, set on the shores of Lake Llanquihue with stunning views of the cones of the Osorno and Calbuco volcanoes. This charming German influenced town is a starting point for one of the most spectacular Andean lake crossings into Argentina as well as day trips to the nearby national parks of Alerce Andino and Vicente Perez Rosales. Reached by ferry, not far off the coast is the distinctive and mysterious island of Chiloé, still preserving its rich folkloric traditions and mythology. Its main attractions are the 16th-century Unesco world heritage wooden churches, the colourful stilt-houses and quaint fishing villages, and many birds, including a colony of Humboldt and Magellanic penguins
