Travelers are drawn to this part of the South of Chile because of its breathtaking lakes, the hospitable attitude and the German legacy that is part of its food and architecture, a trait that may help to make newcomers feel at home.
A network of roads and ferry boats connect diverse interests in the region such as Chiloé island, the Alerce Andino National Park, sea food markets and the pink salmon route, among others. Puerto Varas has an offer to suit everyone’s needs. You can take a stroll along the flowery streets, enjoy its gourmet food or have a pint of some of the best beer. It is also the gateway to a legendary way of crossing the Andes over into Argentina: through the lakes, arriving in Bariloche or overland in exclusive Villa La Angostura.
