The Lake District is a special part of Chilean territory —south of Santiago— which offers a magnetic landscape with unwavering views of lakes, volcanoes, rivers and rain forests.
Cities such as Temuco, Valdivia, Osorno and Puerto Montt connect towns
with their own identities such as Pucon, Villarica, Puerto Octay and Puerto Varas. Cozy and well-located hotels welcome visitors from all over the world. Horseback riding, river rafting, mountain climbing, hiking, cycling and fly fishing are a must for those lovers of outdoors sports.
A visit to the Lake District includes visits to the ancient rain forests of some of the numerous national parks in the area. Needless to say, the Lake Crossing from Puerto Montt/Puerto Varas to Bariloche, in Argentina, is a unique experience of "sailing across the Andes".
